A lawmaker from Cebu wants a light rail transit (LRT) system for the country’s second largest metropolitan area included in the government’s list of projects under the public-private partnership (PPP) scheme.

In a statement, House Assistant Majority Leader Gerald Anthony Gullas Jr.—representing the first district of Cebu—said an LRT line was the only way Metro Cebu could cope with future demand for a fast, safe and reliable public transport system.

“Owing to rapid population growth, we will find it increasingly difficult to move people around a highly congested Metro Cebu in the years ahead,” Gullas said. “Since most of our thoroughfares can no longer be widened, the options left are for us to either build new road tunnels underground, or to put up an overhead LRT line.”

The National Economic and Development Authority’s PPP Center is in charge of identifying potential projects, and facilitating proposals and feasibility studies.

Metro Cebu’s population is expected to double from 2.5 million to 5 million by 2050, according to a study of the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

The main urban center in the Visayas, Metro Cebu groups the seven cities of Cebu, Mandaue, Lapu-Lapu, Danao, Talisay, Naga and Carcar, plus the six municipalities of Consolacion, Liloan, Compostela, Cordova, Minglanilla and San Fernando.

Gullas earlier reintroduced the bill earlier filed by his grandfather, Eduardo, seeking the establishment of the Cebu LRT system for operation in Cebu City. As proposed by the younger Gullas in House Bill 1338, the Cebu LRT line would run between Talisay and Mandaue.

Under the scheme, new railways would also be provided from Talisay to the municipality of Dalaguete in the south, and from Mandaue to the municipality of Sogod in the north.

Gullas said at least one Cebu undertaking—the P17.5-billion Mactan-Cebu International Airport passenger terminal rehabilitation, expansion and operation deal —had been included in the lineup of eight PPP projects, worth a total of P156.1 billion, that the government intended to bid out soon.

Other PPP projects set to be awarded in the coming months are the P60.6-billion LRT Line 1 Cavite extension program; the P35-billion Cavite-Laguna Expressway deal; the P25.6-billion North Luzon Expressway-South Luzon Expressway Connector Road; and the P8.8-billion School Infrastructure Project phase 2.

The P5.7-billion Philippine Orthopedic Center modernization; the P1.7-billion Automated Fare Collection System for the Metro Rail Transit and the LRT; and the P1.2-billion Angat Hydro Electric Power Plant auxiliary turbines 4 and 5 rehabilitation deal are also due to be awarded.

Train mulled in Cebu City streets

CEBU, Philippines - Another mass transport system, a locally-designed and built train, would be rolling out in major Cebu City streets early next year.

The Department of Science and Technology and the Cebu City government yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding to address the concern on urbanized metropolis, speci-fically on traffic congestion through the introduction of a hybrid electric road train.

The project would need “zero or minimal subsidy from the government.”

Based on the MOU, DOST would commission a national body to conduct a feasibility study on the viable route network, fare system, and transport passenger flow of the proposed transport system; fast-track the prototyping, testing and deployment of the Light Rail Transit; and identify probable fabricators in Cebu to construct the LRT once it is approved.

According to the proposed MOU, the city government would identify the LRT routes and facilitate acquisition of the right-of-way for the proposed dedicated lanes.

The city and DOST are also required to initiate consultations or information dissemination on the prototype mass transport system; coordinate with the Regional Development Council and stakeholders for support; seek backing from other national agencies; among others.
Freeman ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch:

“Cebu City is a developing metropolis whose urbanization concerns began to increase, such as traffic congestion and lack of urban services among others…. The DOST commits an energy efficient, less polluting and cost effective form of mass transportation,” read a portion of the MOU.

The 40-meter-long- road train is composed of five interconnected fully air-conditioned coaches, four of which can accommodate 60 passengers each for a total of 240 commuters per ride. The last one is the power coach.

The ERT would run at a speed of 50 kilometers per hour. It is mainly powered by hybrid diesel fuel and electric-powered battery.

DOST Secretary Mario Montejo estimated that the road train can serve 650,000 commuters. He said it is developed based on the city’s actual needs.

“DOST has designed a means to address the mass transportation dilemma in metro roads and the city government has expressed interest in the technology,” he said.

The road train, an alternative means of transportation, was launched on August 22, 2014. Currently, it is being tested at Clark Airbase in Angeles City, Pampanga. Based on the actual test, the road train can run up to 60 kph, faster than an ordinary speed of a road train.

Moreover, the train is designed to be energy-efficient, which means it does not need electricity and suspended cables to operate.

“This newest Filipino innovation also produces less smoke emission compared with existing mass transport vehicles, making it an eco-friendly mode of transport,” ERT project leader Rio Pagtalunan said.

Due to Cebu City’s narrow roads, however, Pagtalunan said they will introduce a hybrid light road train, which is quite smaller and lighter than the ERT.

The five-coach LRT has a passenger capacity ranging from 40-45 persons. It is a 30-meter long train and can run up to 50 kph.

One of the features of the hybrid bus, Pagtalunan, in a powerpoint presentation, said is its motor that vertically mounted that can surpass through flooded roads.

DOST will conduct a test-run of LRT in July to August in Clark, Pampanga to determine its road worthiness after the electro-mechanical integration is completed.

A prototype unit is set to be shipped in Cebu early next year for demonstration and eventual implementation.

The parties are urging private sectors to invest on this inter-modal transport system. — (FREEMAN)

I only wish they wouldn't call it road train. Articulated buses, "train" connotes tracks.

Now they're thinking. DOST has developed the articulated buses already ("road train), they're also on the way to rolling out a prototype of their commuter rail (as on tracks). It's nice DOST and BRT CEBU are talking and working hand in hand. This arrangement is mutually beneficial for Cebu and Clark (where the development and hopefully manufacture of these mass transit vehicles will happen) - local ingenuity, local manufacturing.

Samsam refiles lolo’s LRT-MRT bill

REP. Gerard Anthony “Samsam” Gullas took the reins of the first district from his grandfather, former mayor and congressman Eduardo “Eddiegul” Gullas, and refiled one of his more popular bills.

Rep. Gullas said yesterday he refiled the bill for the construction of the Light Rail Transit-Mono Rail Transit (LRT-MRT) from Dalaguete town in the south to Catmon town in the north.

The bill, which was originally introduced by Eddiegul as early as 1996, is pending before the house committee on transportation.

A similar bill, said Rep. Gullas, was also filed by Rep. Raul del Mar (Cebu City, north district). The two bills may be consolidated during the deliberation.

According to his proposed bill, Rep. Gullas said that the LRT will be from Talisay City to Mandaue City and will only ferry passengers.

The MRT will connect Dalaguete to Talisay in the south and Mandaue to Catmon in the north, and may carry passengers and cargoes.

“In Hongkong and other countries, they found that LRT and MRT are the cheapest means of transportation, so we should adopt it,” Rep. Gullas said during the regular 888 Forum at the Marco Polo Plaza Hotel.

19 minutes

If approved, travel time between Talisay and Mandaue will be as fast as 19 minutes, said Rep. Gullas.

Traveling from Dalaguete to Catmon via the LRT-MRT may take about two hours, the proponent also said.

This will allow workers to go home to their families every day.

“So, why should we ignore this fast, efficient, cheap and reliable means of transportation?,” Gullas asked.

The LRT-MRT proposal of the older Gullas hit a snag when the National Government pursued the Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) system, which is in the process of completing the detailed engineering design.

But Rep. Gullas said that the BRT needs widened roads and will phase out hundreds of jeepneys.

“If it (LRT-MRT bill) doesn't pass into law under the present Congress, so be it. But in re-filing the bill, I know I will succeed in convincing the national leaders and the Department of Transportation and Communication officials that LRT-MRT is important and a better option,” Gullas said.

The young congressman said he is ready to defend his bill during the public hearing.

They should keep pushing and refiling this bill for light rail in Cebu to cover the whole island. Btw., this one should be in another thread, railway instead of BRT. BRT is bus or rubber tire.

At first, i thought he is a reasonable guy who only hates the few SSC-Cebu members. But now, i know, he is one of those anti-Cebu people who'd curse and bash Cebu, despite them being in Cebu for work..

Haters gonna hate no matter what.

LRT, MRT pushed anew
By Mitchelle L. Palaubsanon (The Freeman) | Updated September 16, 2015 - 12:00am

CEBU, Philippines – Cebuanos should push for the establishment of a Light Rail Transit or a Mono Rail Transit to decongest traffic problem now and in the future.

"We should continue to push for LRT and MRT. Moingon sila nga walay budget?. How come Metro Manila daghan na man kaayo na sila og LRT and MRT to the point nga di na gani nila ma maintain," said Architect Michael Yumi Espina, Mega Cebu co-chairman on the sub-committee on integrated planning and development.

Espina, who is also dean of the University of San Carlos-College of Architecture and Fine Arts, said that this is the right time to connect all road centers from Danao City to Carcar City.

"Usa ra ta ka linya sa LRT or MRT from Danao to Carcar and once we have it, we can spread development in these areas. This is one way of decongesting the urban area. We need the LRT to be able to succeed in this dispersing those growth centers. We should do that as early as now otherwise we will sprawl like Manila," Espina said.

Espina cited three-level strategy against urban sprawl. These include disperse growth centers, defines pre-urban area, and develop the “Green Loop.”

The "Green Loop" aims to have a pedestrian-dominated, transit-oriented corridor around the four local government units in the urban area of Metro Cebu to improve social connections among the people.
Freeman ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch:

"Some cities have been designed for cars not for people. We should have more road sharing where people can walk through the sidewalks," said Espina in his presentation during the forum of Mega Cebu Vision 2020 yesterday.

Espina said that the “Green Loop” will try to solve the traffic problem in urban areas through road sharing scheme wherein pedestrians share the roads with the vehicles.

Among its objectives include: bringing legibility of the city by connecting major land uses; to apply controlled densification and shift developments away from forest reserves, to enhance social connections among the population; and provide sense of place, inclusive and democratic and to preserve the natural environment and apply "green" initiatives such as E-jeepney , bike lanes, among others.

"We have to make our sidewalk wider. Some solutions have opposite paradigm. The best solution could be different from the normal. We will have more traffic if people do not walk. That is why we are riding jeepney because there are no sidewalks, no provisions for bike lanes," Espina said.

Espina said that there should be a change in the mindset that infrastructure should be designed for people and not for cars, which is now a worldwide phenomenon. He cited Paris where vehicles are banned from entering the city streets.

"More cars are unhealthy for the environment. Only ten percent of our population have cars and ninety percent of our population could not have cars and yet the reversed is real, ninety percent of our roads are for cars with very little sidewalks for people," he lamented. —/FPL (FREEMAN)

Di ba ayaw ng mga taga Cebu ng LRT? or train system.. If I read it right before..Daming discussion nyan dati dito.

Ayaw nilang masira ang view ng mga kalye. At ayaw din nila ng subsidy from government.

They even sent somebody to travel to a lot of places around the world to prove that buses is better for them! (Sarap naman ng taong yun!).

And they lobby hard to get their BRT.. I am still wondering why they did not ask for LRT/Metro train system for long term solution instead?

So let them have the buses and just send the budget to build train systems in Davao or Iloilo na lang kaya.

Well, you're probably right in a sense that some of the points you mentioned are true. But, let me expound those points and give you some facts.

First, we are now preserving the historic downtown and uptown areas of Cebu City, a stretch of land slicing the north and south districts of the city but ends at the Capitol complex. It would be preferrable for a BRT system to traverse along these areas. Actually, the inaction and complacency of the national government caused the delay of the project for more than three years and some studies being done before are now irrelevant.

Second, it's only been a while that our leaders are doing concerted efforts to make a comprehensive blueprint to develop Metro Cebu (kindly read the bits of data about the Mega Cebu Authority in Phil. National Infrastructure and Urban Planning thread). A thorough study was made and we found out that a BRT system should complement other mass transportation systems such as MRT, LRT and AGT as well as support infrastructure such as improved traffic management, addition of three bridges between Mactan and mainland, ROW, new green and economic corridors, transfer of container terminal further north of Cebu City, flood control and others.

Further, the horrendous traffic conditions in some Metro areas (Talisay City, Cebu City, Mandaue City, Lapu-Lapu City and Consolacion), uncontrollable waste management, chronic flood problems and lack of urban housing for the informal settlers have prompted our leaders to formulate long term plans and to lobby a unanimous bill among Cebuano legislators to give legal authority to Metro Cebu Development Coordinating Board and turn it into a legal body, which is Mega Cebu Authority.

I think you don't know the whole thing.

@zidlakan, the current General Manager of Mactan Airport, who was previously the urban planner of Cebu City mentioned that Cebu officials has been proposing LRT for Cebu. If I remember it correctly, two feasibility studies has been done since the late 90's. It's just that LRT was not economically feasible at that time and traffic flow in Metro Cebu has started to slow down since early 2000.

To counter this possibility of traffic problem with an economically viable option, the idea of BRT surfaced. It was a new idea, so, some Cebuano officials has to travel to learn the idea. And BRT was welcomed by us, because it's economical, very fast to implement and since it can be deployed on-grade, then it won't affect our heritage sites.

TOO BAD, PRESIDENT Bull.Shit. PNOY, with all his wisdom, delayed the approval of this project, despite the fact that all technical data shows that BRT will be a good mass transport for Cebu. Until now, there is no clear reason as to why PNOY delayed this project, other than using it as campaign material

Who said Cebuanos do not dream of LRT? Just because of few posts you read from SSC? Just because of few press releases from some officials?

Funny thing to know that after years of PRs and lobbying for the BRT, it remains a plan.

Yes, DOTC should give Cebu their BRT and just hand over the rest of the budget to other cities like Davao or Panay Island who need it for their LRT/railways projects too.
