I am positive that this project would materialize.

The Iloilo LGU, the locals and the whole nation would want to see the first monorail in the country in that bustling city!

So excited for this project aabutin din kaya ng 2 months ang feasibility study nito gaya ng pre-feasibility?, sana maimplement at maumpisahan na ang construction this year agad, Iloilo City needs Railway System habang hindi pa masyadong populated ang city, wag na hintayin gumaya sa Manila na lumobo populasyon bago dagdagan ng bagong lines, sabagay mukhang sang-ayon naman ang mga politiko at businessmen ng Iloilo sa project nato and hoping this year maumpisahan na para magamit na sa 2019!

Taga Cebu po ba kayo?, Tapos na ba feasibility sa Cebu LRT? o may bidding na?, sana nga lahat ng Railway Projects sa Visayas matuloy na!, agree ako dito na iconnect sa Panay Railways later on since may plano naman Duterte Admin. na irevive din ang Panay Railways!

I don't think magagamit yan by 2019 kasi based on what I read from some previous posts katatapos lang ng pre-feasibility studies at capable ang Iloilo for a monorail. Matagal pa na discussions yan kung pano ang roll out ng mga trains, etc at saan ang best locations for the stations. But sana maisakatuparan to at yung malayo na sa city eh may reach din. Fingers crossed and Iloilo's LGU to walk the talk.

Money makes the world go around. In the PH, they follow the money. So if the money says get it done in x amount of time, I bet you, things will get done. I just hope the money has patience. Monorails, even at grade trams/lrvs are excellent solutions for Iloilo, even downtown Cebu. Keep our fingers crossed.

Iloilo Monorail

Proposed monorail a boost to Iloilo City economy
By Perla Lena June 1, 2018, 1:29 pm Share

ILOILO CITY -- The realization of the monorail project system proposed by the BYD (Build Your Dreams) Auto Industry Co Ltd. in Iloilo city is expected to further boost the economy of the metropolis.

BYD, an auto industry company based in China, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) and non-disclosure agreement for the conduct of a pre-feasibility study for its proposed monorail project with the local government unit here in August last year.

Last January, the result of the pre-feasibility study showed that this city is capable of hosting the project.

Anytime this June, the firm is expected to present the result of their feasibility study, said Ritchel Gavan, head of the Local Economic and Investment and Promotion Office (LEIPO) in an interview Thursday afternoon.

The study will cover the financial modality, exact stations, and other details of the project, which will be an “added boost to the local economy” and will provide employment for the locals.

“From the start, we have said that this is a private investment so we will be generating revenues from this,” Gavan said.

Initially, the company was also advised to source its workers during the construction phase at the locality, ensuring employment for Ilonggos.

The transport system will also provide ease and convenience to commuters because the pre-feasibility study result showed that the travel time from its point of origin to the city hall will just be 15 minutes.

Gavan said that the first of the project’s three phases will cover three Iloilo City routes -- Iloilo City Hall to Ungka in Jaro district for Line 1; Jaro to the city center for Line 2; and Mohon, Areval to City Proper for Line 3.

The proposed monorail was highlighted during the BYD launch of its Multi-Layered Electrified Transportation Solution in the Philippines at the Le Pavilion in Pasay City last Wednesday.

Gavan said Iloilo City is the first local government unit outside China that the BYD has begun working with.

“It only goes to show that they are impressed with the city. They have seen the capabilities of Iloilo City. They see that we are almost there being a smart city,” she added.

Gavan said that while the project will push through, it will first be subjected to a Swiss challenge because it is an unsolicited proposal.

Meanwhile, Mayor Jose Espinosa in his message during the launch said that the presence of BYD in Iloilo City will make this highly-urbanized city a “pioneer in terms of innovation.”

“With BYD’s monorail in our lovely city, we will not only enhance the city’s traffic management scheme but will also promote our campaign for green technology,” Espinosa said.

Wednesday’s event also showcased the various electric transportation facilities being offered by the BYD. (PNA)

If it's a go ahead, and the money is there, I think in 4 years it will be completed. Good luck Iloilo.

We have to wait and see but I'm hoping this will push through talaga. That other cities also will have their own railways in the near future not only Greater Manila.
