Simpleng turnilyo lang ng MRT inoorder pa natin sa China.

Double tracking all the way to Legazpi / Matnog extension will be very very very co$$$tly.

In the future when we opt to make it double, we would again pay for ROW acquisition. By that time, ROW budget would be higher.

Hope we have enough money. Double-track system has its inherent advantages.

You just answered your question.

We don't even have to money to build a single track line, hence the proposed Chinese ODA for one of the ultimate rail wet dream (besides the MMSP).

The PNR RROW is wide. Really wide. Problem lang talaga is the encroachment of squatters, both the professional and the "legit" ones.

Well with due respect, I was not asking a question since I know the situation.

Anyhow, it is good to know that the PNR RROW is wide. The government has to check squatting along and near the railways once this project has been completed. Currently, DoTr has billions of budget only for resettlement of families affected by PNR Southrail.

government can't do it alone.

the first line against squatters is basically useless because of votes [the barangay chairperson].

PHL to fast-track implementation of China-funded projects
Quote:
In particular, the Finance chief said the South Long Haul Manila-Bicol Railway and the Clark-Subic Railway projects have been moving rapidly, in line with the Philippine government’s push to accelerate infrastructure spending.

The loan has been signed for the P4.37-billion Chico River Pump Irrigation Project, with an interest rate of two percent per annum with a maturity period of 20 years with a seven-year grace period. Work on the project started last month as carried out by China CAMC Engineering Co. Ltd.

A P4.13-billion grant has also been forged between Manila and Beijing for the Binondo-Intramuros and Estrella-Pantaleon bridges which are now under construction.

Officials from the two countries met to discuss progress on the set of China-funded projects. Included in the “first basket” of projects up for funding are the New Centennial Water Source-Kaliwa Dam Project, and the Davao-Samal Bridge Construction Project.

Others on the “second basket” of public works to be financed by China loans are the Ambal-Simuay River and Rio Grande de Mindanao River Flood Control Projects, Pasig-Marikina River and Manggahan Floodway Bridges Construction Project, Safe Philippines Project Phase 1, and the Rehabilitation of the Agus-Pulangi Hydroelectric Power Plants Project.

Chinese money will also support the Davao City Expressway Project, the provision of radio and broadcasting equipment to the Presidential Communications Operations Office, and the Philippine-Sino Center for Agricultural Technology-Technical Cooperation Program Phase 3.

Mr. Dominguez said the two countries have grown “very close” since the Duterte administration reopened the Philippines’ ties with China. Beijing’s Minister Wang also noted that bilateral ties “entered a fast track of development” under this government.

DOTr expects to seal China loan for P151-billion South rail
Quote:
The Department of Transportation said it expects to obtain a loan from China this year for the P151-billion Philippine National Railways South Long-haul project.
“Our target is to sign the loan agreement during the visit of President Xi of China this year,” Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said during an economic forum organized by the Economic Journalists Association of the Philippines at Ayuntamiento de Manila in Intramuros, Manila Tuesday.
Chinese President Xi Jinping is set to visit the Philippines after attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit on Nov. 12 to 18 in Papua New Guinea.
The PNR South Long-haul project is a 581-kilometer, standard-gauge railway from Manila to Legazpi, Matnog and Batangas City. The railway will connect cities, international seaports and economic zones, allowing faster transportation of passengers and freight.
The project involves the complete reconstruction of the legacy PNR railway into a single-track, at-grade railway

So it seems 99.99% likely that PNR Southrail Bicol Loan Agreement will be included in Xi Jinping's Manila visit.

If trains can run from MM to Legazpi in 5 hours (express service), this will seriously give bus operators a run for their money.

This I hope to see in my lifetime.
