Yeng, MVP propose Manila-Clark fast train

ANGELES CITY–First District congressional bet and Vice Governor Joseller “Yeng” Guiao is eyeing the construction of a Manila-Clark fast train, while business tycoon Manny V. Pangilinan has vowed to fund the project.

In a meeting with local reporters, Guiao disclosed an exclusive meeting with Pangilinan, City of San Fernando Mayor Oscar Rodriguez and businessman Levy Laus, about the Manila-Clark fast train last December 2012.

Guiao said Pangilinan has vowed to fund the fast train which will be constructed at the eastern side of the North Luzon Expressway (NLex) and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTex), on the condition that the national government will develop the Clark International Airport as the country’s major airport for the train’s viability.

He furthered that Pangilinan, who owns the franchise of NLEx and SCTEx, finds no problem in the right of way and alignment issues on the construction of the fast train at the eastern portion of the expressway.

The congressional bet also proposed a sub-station which will be constructed along the compound of the Philippine Arena, the Iglesia Ni Cristo-owned coliseum, in Bocaue, Bulacan.

Guaio said the most viable sub-stations for a fast train are only to two or three stations from Manila.

He furthered that if given the chance to be congressman in the May 13 polls, he will work for the immediate construction of the fast train as he eyes more investments, jobs and progress not only for the First District but for the whole of Central Luzon.

The congressional bet said that along with the conversion of the Clark Freeport into an authority, he will work the “twinning” of the Clark International Airport and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, and the connection of the two airports via a fast train traversing through the SCTEx and NLEx.

I know ever since that NoRail is not a high-speed system. why do you think I mock its 50kph speed?

50kph?! Mas-mabagal yan kaysa sa typical commuter rail dito! Baka naman puwedeng iangat to 80kph, if not 100kph… that way, pupwede yan tawaging Express Train.

Puwede sana. Kaso, kailangang I-clear ang ROW (right-of-way) from informal settlers and other structures para maging 4 tracks ang riles between Clark and Tutuban. With more rail, one can establish local, rapid, and express services, and that will boost ridership immensely.

NR ROW has been cleared of informal settlers for about a decade now. And the system would start at Caloocan, not at Tutuban.

Northrail po ang pinag-uusapan di ung "bullet train" sa article...

Hmmm... I think Tutuban makes more sense than just starting in Caloocan because Tutuban has been traditionally the "Union Station" of Manila (meaning that the station is the hub or central station of the railway network of a city), and that when full rail services are restored all the way to Tutuban, it'd mean Divisoria can be improved significantly over time as a more pleasant shopping center in the process.

Kung NorthRail, I think 50kph average speed can be a suitable speed... But, will it be electrified? If so, the average speed can be higher than 50kph because the power mechanism used to run the trains can produce higher voltages, allowing trains to run faster.
