Manila-Clark commuter rail will have an extension. It will extend down to Los Baños, Laguna.

DOF Sec. Dominguez mentioned that in total, it will be 127km, no longer 106km.

Philippine and Japanese officials to meet tonight and tomorrow.

Maybe he was talking about PNR South Commuter project? That line would run from Manila to Los Baños. It is very good if the Japanese would fund it along with the PNR North.

That's really funny since they cancelled GMA's Northrail whichs cost $802 Million according to Drilon but then signed a $2 Billion deal to almost the same length of rail after 6 years of feasibility studies.

Yea it's getting confusing. I wish they should just number them and put all the rail plans on the map along with the designated numbers. It's getting really confusing which one is elevated, which one is not. PNR North, to be built by Japan is elevated, as far as i know. While PNR South Line is entirely being built by China. Now, Dominguez mentioned that North will exten to Los Banos, will that be elevated as well? In total, the PNR North being built by Japan from Clark to Los Banos will be around 127km.

Diba nahahati sa dalawa ang PNR South. Isa ang commuter line which is fully elevated same with PNR North. Another one is the Long haul Up to Matnog sorsogon which will be we don't know if some are at grade or elevated. Baka sa China ibibigay ang long Haul going to Bicol.

DOTr seeks China funding for PNR south line




MANILA — The Department of Transportation (DOTr) plans to tap a loan from the Chinese government to build a railway project linking Manila to Bicol province, according to Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade.
The planned connection, once part of the Public Private Partnership pipeline before the shift to overseas development assistance funding, will be done via a massive southern railway project split into separate components by the Philippine National Railways.
The South Long Haul project, a P151-billion train line that spans 581 kilometres, will run through Laguna, Batangas, Quezon, Camarines Sur, Alabay and Sorsogon.

It shouldn't be that confusing.

Manila-Malolos is an elevated commuter rail, na-extend lang to Clark because of the urgent need to decongest NAIA.

Manila-Los Baños is also a commuter rail, supposed to be elevated din.

If it is Japan who will fund the Los Baños line, that would be better para may interoperability at maging isang continuous line.

Ang wish ko lang isabay na nila yung West Extension ng LRT2 para mas madali matunton ng mga tao yung Tutuban central station.

Speaking of "central" station, mukhang magiging dalawa ang sa MM — North Avenue at Tutuban. May chance pa maging tatlo with FTI in the south para may northern, central at southern hubs.

Sa lahat ng rail wet dream projects for the next six years, this is the one I want to be completed most [LRT2 West Extension] - this is such a low-hanging fruit it has to be constructed, done, completed, and inaugurated by Da Man before he steps down in 2022, health willing.

Tama!.. LRT West extension would boost the development of that area near Tondo and would help those people coming in from the Visayas and Mindanao who are riding the big RORO ships.

this will really work well and complement japan's big factories in the south..so its best to let the japanese do this.. it is for their interests as well..

Sorry for resurrecting this, but this was supposedly approved earlier, so I'm surprised there's not more extensive discussion on this.

According to JICA study from 2013, the plan was to connect Clark and NAIA 3 directly (!), with Airport Express train along with Commuter train.

http://open_jicareport.jica.go.jp/74..._12126645.html

Ang hirap ng scanned docs, you can't keyword search unlike original Save As pdf. Wish I could find newer docs like Environmental Impact Statement.

It's now looking like it's the Subway that will connect to NAIA, so passengers will need to get on West-East line to connect to the new Commuter North / South lines.

Hope somebody with concrete knowledge can confirm:

1.) Are they going to go through NLEX at all or old PNR route (refurbish existing NorthRail structures?)
2.) Will there still be Airport Express, or just Commuter? AER is a more expensive service, and if Clark and NAIA can't be connected directly, there's no justification for procuring more expensive rolling stock, and more importantly, strict signalling system so that the AER can leapfrog Commuter trains on the same line. AER was the "high speed" line (160km/h), so what now?

Bakit ganun guys ung PNR commuter line south ay maguumpisa sa Solis Tondo, Manila hindi sa Tutuban mismo. It means sasakay pa ng PUV galing recto or sasakay ulit ng PNR commuter north para lang makapunta ng 1st PNR South Commuter Station.


Based on recent changes, its Commuter Line segment which spans 72 kilometers with 23 stations, now starts from Solis-Hermosa in Manila to Los Baños, Laguna. The Long Haul segment picks up from Los Baños and runs through Batangas, Quezon and the Bicol provinces of Camarines Sur and Albay to Sorsogon.

Hindi na magiging unified or grand station ang Tutuban.
