Makati Subway|Length:11 kms.|10 Stations

IRC gets original proponent status for Makati subway
Quote:
IRC Properties Inc. and its Chinese partners secured an ‘original proponent status’ from the city government of Makati for the proposed $3.7-billion Makati intra-city rail transport system.
IRC, a listed property developer formerly Interport Resources Corp., said in a disclosure to the stock exchange the unsolicited proposal would now proceed to the next phase of the Public-Private Partnership process after the project was accepted by the Makati government for “purposes of detailed negotiations on the technical and financial aspects” of the project.
Under the proposal, the IRC-led consortium would build an 11-kilometer intra-city subway system with eight to 10 stations to connect key points in Makati’s two districts with no cash-out on the part of the city.
IRC said the proposed subway would complement the mass transport projects of the national government, interconnecting with the Metro Rail Transit Line 3, the proposed Metro Manila Mega Subway and Pasig River ferry.
The estimated total cost of the project is $3.7 billion.
IRC said with a daytime population of 4.5 million, the project would alleviate the traffic coming in and out of Makati.
“IRC’s proposal is aligned with the national government’s aggressive infrastructure program as well as Makati’s goal to be a digital city. Not only will it move people quicker, it will allow people to be more productive and spend more time with their families. The project will also create thousands of jobs and reduce the carbon footprint due to lesser cars on the streets,” IRC executive vice president Georgina Monsod said.
Monsod said IRC recently proposed to increase its authorized capital to P10.5 billion from P1.5 billion.
IRC said several Chinese companies including Greenland Holdings Group, Jiangsu Provincial Construction Group Co. Ltd., Holdings Ltd. and China Harbour Engineering Company Ltd. expressed interest to participate in the project.
Greenland is a publicly-listed real estate firm and a part of the Shanghai Stock blue-chip index, while Jiangsu Provincial Construction Group is a construction company founded in 1956 and one of the pioneers in China’s construction and installation industry.
Kwan On Holdings Ltd. is engaged in construction and maintenance works on civil engineering contracts while Shanghai MinTu Investment Holdings is a Shanghai-based integrated investment holding group focusing on infrastructure, mass transportation, and financial services.
China Harbour Engineering Company is ranked No.165 as a Global Fortune 500 Companies and No. 4 as Top Global Contractors by Engineering News Record

wow so this is different from the subway project of the government with JICA! This looks like a better deal than the monorail of Megaworld which could pass through a similar path although that proposal looks more doable and realistic since private companies are involved. Even better if both projects materializes and intersects somewhere in BGC. This Makati project could start from Circuit Makati (or even all the way from LRT) then to BGC while the Megaworld one from Guadalupe to McKinley then Arca South.

The proposal is only within Makati city limits. Extension to Pasay or Taguig is already a different story.

IRC gains traction in $3.7-billion Makati rail project

Several companies have already indicated their intention to be part of the IRC consortium.

Dapat kasama na rin yung interconnection sa LRT-1. Yung papasok at palabas ng Ayala at BGC BGC ang mahirap dahil sa traffic

I'm no expert but I can see the rationality here that it is fine for CBDs at least what I experienced. Here in Sydney they have City Circle line which only covers the Sydney CBD area and loops back to Central. It also used by other lines too.

Pwede naman pala per LGU ang ganitong project. QC dapat ang may ganito to connect Balintawak, Novaliches Bayan, Farview, Diliman, CBD area, Cubao, Eastwood and Ortigas.

Sana ang meaning ng "connection" sa ibang line eh may interchange/common station talaga if possible within the limits of engineering, para na din mas efficient at convenient sa passengers na mag-transfer ng line. Dikitan lang nila ng malls instead na going through it (looking at you Cubao stations). Proper interchange walang gate mag-transfer ng line, lipat ka lang talaga ng platforms.

If heavy-rail ang gagamitin, maganda rin if may integration din sa MM Subway, baka pwede mag-karoon ng interoperability between MM Subway at Makati Subway. Like same specifcations in regards to train, signalling system, etc. Parang may physical connection ba kagaya sa Line 1 and 3 (hindi nga lang nagamit).

That if its feasible to do.

That would be nice, pero if LRV ang gagamitin nila. I prefer that they use proper metro cars though since this Subway even though its might get high volume of passengers fairly quickly.

I have always been curious where that tunnel leads to or its plans. Did they actually planning to make a spur line to Makati but never came to fruition? It's kinda cool to have this easter egg.
