PAVI-LRT6 | Length: 19km| 7 Stations

Cavite railway lures conglomerates

By Daphne J. Magturo, Reporter

THE GOVERNMENT yesterday formally offered to investors the P65.09-billion Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line 6 public-private partnership (PPP) project that will connect the cities of Bacoor and Dasmariñas in Cavite province, promptly catching the attention of least three conglomerates.


The planned 19-kilometer railway will connect Bacoor and Dasmariñas and is expected to serve 45% of Cavite’s population.

...
Seven stations will be built along the railway that will run along Aguinaldo Highway: Niyog near the planned Niyog LRT Line 1 Cavite Extension Station, Tirona, Imus Transport Terminal, Daang Hari, Salitran, Congressional Avenue and Governor’s Drive.

I was under the impression that this line is merely an extension of LRT1's extension to Bacoor, if it ever gets built.

Is this not the case anymore? Will this be a separate stand alone line?

Well that sucks! I don't know why they can't just make LRT1 one very long and continuous line, including MRT3 since they are physically connected. Imagine a one seat train ride in all those potential destinations. One can live in Cavite and get off in Ortigas without ever leaving the train.

Then you'll end up with long queues at the turnstiles of other stations and very crowded stations and jam packed trains. It's better if they make it separate.

Why???? If someone wants to go from Cavite to Ortigas, why should they go out and change trains? Especially if there is no criss crossing. Changing trains is the reason why there would be long queues in turnstiles because there would be more movement of people outside the trains than them just being in the trains.

A lot of much more developed countries with far far more efficient transit systems try their best to avoid transfers because transfers impede the smooth flow of passengers trying to get from one destination to the other. A good example is BART in the SF Bay Area. You can get from Colma to Freemont or Walnut Creek without transferring. You just board the right train. Same in Amsterdam wherein you can board a train that either goes to downtown or Brussels...just board the right train. The same should be done here!

Unfortunately, this line is separate from the LRT-1 Cavite extension. There will be two (2) train stations that will be built at Niyog - one for LRT 1 and one for LRT 6 - and will be connected to make it as an interchange. Since this is a "Light" Railway Transit, it is designed to run at a shorter distance. Hence, train track has been cut off at Niyog. Anyway, the future EDSA subway (aka Heavy Railway Transit) can run in a longer route.

As per project timeline, LRT-6 operation is expected to be fully operated by December 2021.

Still preaching about that magical mythical subway, eh? As for LRT6 being operational by December 2021, that remains to be seen on May 2016. I do hope we get a president like PGMA wherein he or she can see the stupidity of unnecessarily stand alone lines the same way she stopped the monstrosity that is EDSA North Transit!

LRT 6 remains to be seen as LRT Cavite Extension has not started yet (Thanks to LRMC).

Japan ain't running our country and MOAs are useless under the current administration, something which SM Prime knows very well. That said, as long as Mar Roxas isn't president, there is hope, but still no guarantee (unless Duterte wins of course) that your mythical, magical subway may come to fruition.

Timeline for the L6

DOTC sets time frame for LRT-6 bidding
By Louella D. Desiderio (The Philippine Star) |
Updated December 26, 2015 - 12:00am

Quote:
The submission of the pre-qualification documents for the project is scheduled on March 4, 2016 at the DOTC’s office in Mandaluyong City.

After the submission of pre-qualification documents, the DOTC is expected to announce in April the firms that are pre-qualified to bid for the project.

The deadline for the submission and opening of technical bids will be held in September, followed by the opening of financial proposals in October.

After the opening of the technical and financial bids, the signing of the concession agreement is targeted in December.

<snipped>
Expect the timeline to be moved as bidders will ask more time to prepare their bid docs and proposals, not to mention 2016 is an election season - wait muna kung friendly ba sa bizniz ang uupo sa Palasyo.

i'm not sure if Line 1 can be upgraded/viable to be upgraded as commuter rail that will serve long distance trips. supposedly PNR should do that (with their Cavite Line before)

unfortunately, Duterte is not very keen about infrastructure development. His top priority is food security. And LRT Davao. lol

I've read in the news that LRMC is awaiting the Notice to Proceed from DOTC, stating that there will be financial closing prior to commencement of consruction. I thought once the Contract is signed the peroject will start soon after. So many hurdles, too much bureaucracy.

mabagal yata ang pag relocate ng mga squatters pero meron na kong nakikitang mga bakante na dating okupado ng mga squatter pero tingin ko bago umpisahan ito kelangan 100 percent acqured na yung row..

That said, I do think Grace Poe would be better in that regard due to her first hand experience and track record in the Senate (she is one of Abaya's worse enemies), but to reiterate, security is my priority hence why Durterte is my first choice (with Grace being second).
