^Hahaha! May oras naman yan silang sinusunod dba? Bawal sila na maging sobrang maaga or late reaching their destination or they will be fined. May rule ba silang ganyan? Yung ibang company may ganyang rule.

Mindanao railway construction to start next year; no plans yet for Visayas

Quote:
MANILA - Government has no plans yet to build a railway system in the Visayas region as construction on the proposed Mindanao railway is expected to start next year.

Socioeconomic Undersecretary Rody Tungpalan on Friday said what they are looking at for the Visayas is the revival of the Panay Island railways and improved inter-island connectivity through bridges.

Tungpalan said efforts will focus on the proposed Mindanao railway project, which will be divided into two phases.

The first phase is the Mindanao island line while the second extends the line to the Zamboanga peninsula.

Government aims to complete a feasibility study and get NEDA approval by this year, and have a detailed engineering plan by 2017. Construction is expected to take five years.

Tungpalan said the first segment will likely be operational before the term of President Rodrigo Duterte ends. All other segments can be constructed simultaneously.

He said the project, which has no price tag yet, could be one of the most iconic programs of the Duterte administration.

Agree. I prefer bridges over rails first in the Visayas region. It's important that we interconnect the major islands first before putting up rails. Ofcourse, we can still do it simultaneously.

OT:

NGCP especially Monte Oro [Henry Sy Jr.] really struck a goldmine in the Transco assets [dark fiber].

IIRC, there were already statements from the Aquino Admin back then that the 40% stake of SGCC should be offloaded due to obvious national security concerns.

If ever the real SHTF, all Beijing needs to do is to literally turn off the light switch at Quezon Avenue cor. BIR Road.

Marunong yung hintsik na utusan natin noon! Kunwari inaaway niya yung tsekwa, sa halip na iwasto ang kamalian na pinasok ng admin na sinundan nya, halos lahat ng mga malulutong at masasarap na contracts ibinigay sa "kalaban"!

Many of the proposed bridges are not realistic, such as Cebu - Bohol or Luzon - Mindoro. However, it might be possible to connect Panay and Negros (via Guimaras) or Negros and Cebu (in the Dumaguete area) or Panay and Boracay.

EDSA bus rapid transit, Mindanao railway up for NEDA approval

Quote:
MANILA, Philippines – Major transportation projects are among 10 projects worth P320 billion awaiting approval by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) board.

NEDA Director General Ernesto Pernia said on Tuesday, August 23, that projects like a bus rapid transit plying EDSA, a North-to-South Railway Southline for Luzon, and the Mindanao Railway have been recommended for approval by the NEDA board chaired by President Rodrigo Duterte.

I think it can simultaneously be done through PPP?

The longest rail that can be built in the Visayas is the Samar-Leyte combination. Others need to traverse vast water distances which surely is more expensive. Maybe someday.

Rail projects in the pipeline increasing

Quote:
Mr. Pernia added that foreign contractors have also expressed interest to build a separate railway in Mindanao, a project that was tagged as a priority by Mr. Duterte in his first State of the Nation Address last July 25. He said builders from South Korea, Japan and China are “interested” in the 2,000-kilometer (km) railway project which is currently under a feasibility study.

One segment of the planned Mindanao railway will traverse the cities of Digos, Davao and Tagum and connect to the northern cities of Butuan, Cagayan de Oro and Iligan. A separate line will link Zamboanga del Sur and Zamboanga City to Cagayan de Oro and Malungon, Sarangani.

Good point

From Boo:

Mindanao railway project? Ho hum. They can’t even fix the MRT3 and the PNR that are urgently needed and have economic viability. How fast do you think they can go on a greenfield Mindanao railway project whose economic viability is yet to be determined? They can’t even protect the NGCP power lines there… railway pa?

We have neglected our railway systems and that’s tragic, given our transport problems today. We should embark on a massive building of railway systems, but government should also be truthful and not just raise people’s hopes only to disappoint them.

Yup, pero we have been hearing so many plans and promises from admins past. Sobra na eh.

What we need is IMPLEMENTATION.

Meron nga tayong unwritten rule sa SSC: hangga't di tapos yung project eh considered wala. Kasi kahit nga yung under-construction nawawala pa.

Everything not finished is called "unfinished". Even if a project gets completed, the next admin can undo what has been completed. Haven't you all heard about Cebu's CICC?

That said, we'll never know until a project gets done and people benefit on their use. Besides, government officials have these propensity to delete the use of infra that will earn points to their opponents, that is!
