Construction of 2,000 km. Mindanao Railway System to start in 2017

Quote:
The government is likely to start constructing the Mindanao Railway System next year as one of the priority infrastructure projects under the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.

"It's going to start soon—perhaps next year," Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto M. Pernia told reporters in a briefing in Davao City.

Last May, Duterte revealed he was eyeing a new railway system as his "first big project" as President.

I don't know exactly how many accidents and people were killed involved with rural but as far as I know hindi naman cguro ganon ka rami. Maganda nga mga bus nila bago at saka malinis compare sa defunct weena bus traveling to cotabato jusko! San kaya dadaan ang riles nito cagayan to davao?

After this project davao-cotabato na sana ang susunod ang raming pasahero jan during rush hour..

Not exactly. If MRS should be capable to transport cargo then it will be mostly from seaports to several inland hubs where the cargo is tansferred to trucks to its final destinations. Assume a ship is carrying 500 TEU (one TEU is a short standard container, the long ones are 2 TEU each) cargo for Davao, CDO and Zambo. It takes long time to let the ship travel around the island, stop at all sea ports and drop a few containers. So it's more efficient and faster to let the ship just call in one port, and transport containers for other destinations to nearby hubs. And of course, the same is possible vice-versa. Bring containers from Iligan, El Salvador, Butuan, Gingoog to CDO. Load them on a train to Davao and there on a ship going to America or Europe. So Mindanao could become more attactive for export orientated industry.

And now let's talk about passenger transport. You all know these masses of buses congesting Sayre Highway and Davao-Bukidnon Highway. If half of the passengers transfer to trains then you can operate four trains per day each direction. A bus ride from CDO to Davao takes 6 to 7 hours, depending on the traffic. A normal speed train can make it in less than 3 hours, a high speed train in less than two hours.

China, Japan, South Korea, local firms eye Mindanao rail project


Quote:
DAVAO CITY – The governments of China, Japan and South Korea as well as at least four homegrown conglomerates are interested to invest in the proposed 2,000-kilometer Mindanao railway system that will connect the entire island, officials of state planning agency National Economic and Development Authority (Neda) said Thursday.

Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto M. Pernia told reporters that China was “very eager” to finance the project, but the Japanese government was also pitching financing through official development assistance (ODA).

Pernia, who is also the Director-General of Neda, said at least four local groups—“the usual suspects”—were likewise interested in the project, including Ayala Corp., Megawide Construction Corp., Metro Pacific Investments Corp., and San Miguel Corp.


Pernia said the Duterte administration plans to start work on the project next year, with completion expected beyond 2022.

Neda Deputy Director-General Rolando G. Tungpalan said a feasibility study is ongoing to determine “the best way to structure the project.” Tungpalan said the Chinese, Japanese and South Korean governments were all “ready” to fund the project.

Pernia said the Mindanao railway project may be funded through various ways, including ODA and public-private partnership (PPP), but they have yet to determine which will be most feasible. The project cost is also yet to be finalized.

The Neda chief said they were looking at implementing the two projects in two stages, with the initial stage to connect the cities of Davao and Cagayan de Oro.

Earlier reports said the rail project will also pass through the cities of Butuan, Iligan, General Santos, Surigao and Zamboanga.

Pernia said this is part of the Duterte administration’s resolve to spread infrastructure development to underserved areas outside Metro Manila, especially Mindanao.

The government also plans to improve tourism infrastructure as well as sea ports in the southern island, he added

China, Japan, Korea keen on funding Mindanao railway project

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines may get some help from the governments of Asian giants to fund the Mindanao Railway System project.

The proposed 2,000-kilometer railway project is envisioned to connect key Mindanao cities including Davao, Zamboanga, Butuan, Surigao, Cagayan de Oro, Iligan, and General Santos in order to spur economic development in the region.

^ i dunno with the Germans. maybe the French can extend a development-related aid to help build the railway. i am not sure with the Spaniards since their economy is still in a state of disarray nowadays.

2000KM at start na kaagad ang construction next year? May feasibility study na ba to before pa? How about right of way issues? Parang ang bilis ata kung next year na kaagad ang start ng construction.
