“Eight trains with a capacity of 850 would be fielded on the shuttle line and is expected to accommodate 7,000 passengers,” the Department of Transportation said in a statement.

The new railway line will extend the existing PNR Caloocan-dela Rosa line, which was opened last August 1.

The PNR Caloocan-dela Rosa line will be utilized for commuters going from Caloocan to Makati and vice versa, as the PNR pursues the construction of the North-South Commuter Line or the PNR North 1, connecting Tutuban to Malolos.

This was shut down during the the late 90’s to early 2000’s to pave the way for the construction of the Northrail project, which was envisioned to connect Metro Manila to Malolos, Bulacan and Clark, Pampanga. (PNA)

DOTr groundbreaks Manila -Clark rail project
Louella Desiderio (The Philippine Star) - January 6, 2018 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Transportation (DOTr) started yesterday pre-construction activities for the first phase of the Philippine National Railways line linking Metro Manila to Clark.

During the groundbreaking ceremony held yesterday in Marilao, Bulacan for the Advance Contruction Mobilization for Phase 1 of the PNR Clark Railway, DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade said the government has decided to begin pre-construction works such as site clearing, realignment or relocation of utility lines, as well as acquisition of right of way to get the project moving.

< Edited >

The project is seen to ease   vehicular traffic in Metro Manila and speed up travel to north of the metropolis, especially key areas of Central Luzon where modern townships are being developed.

< Edited >

The first phase of the PNR Clark Railway covers the 38-kilometer segment from Tutuban in Manila to Malolos in Bulacan.

The Tutuban to Malolos segment, which is also known as the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) project, was approved by the National Economic and Development Authority Board in February 2015.

In November of the same year, the Japanese official development assistance loan for the project was signed.

The Tutuban to Malolos segment will have 10 stations and is expected to serve 340,000 passengers daily.

Once the project is completed, commuters from Tutuban are expected to reach Malolos in 35 minutes.

Japan International Cooperation Agency representative Susumo Ito said in the same event the project would be a major game changer in terms of opening opportunities in the economies surrounding of  Metro Manila, particularly in the North.

These concrete sleepers are intended for raising the tracks between Laong Laan-Dimasalang and Samson Road to utilize the reopening of the Acacia-Gov. Pascual in Malabon-Sangandaan in the Caloocan segment of PNR Mainline North.

This will extend the service of the newly reopened PNR Caloocan-Dela Rosa, Makati service to FTI in Taguig which provide alternative mode of transportation to the public and will help decongest traffic during rush hour.

Preps begin for Phase 1 of PNR Clark railway project
By PTV News - January 6, 2018

http://defenseph.net/drp/index.php?action=post;topic=579.0;last_msg=12994

MARILAO, Bulacan — The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Philippine National Railways (PNR) began Friday various preparations for the construction of the first phase of the PNR Clark railway project that will run from Tutuban in Manila to Malolos in Bulacan province.

Pre-construction activities include site clearing, grading of unleveled surfaces, and demolition of obstructions to the PNR line.

Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said the department is committed to pursuing measures, such as doing parallel activities, to fast-track the completion of the railway project.

Tugade noted that based on previous practices, site clearing works had to wait after the awarding of a project to a general contractor.

“DOTr understands the need to complete this project faster. That is why we pursued these works parallel with the procurement of the general contractor, which is scheduled to be selected by the second quarter of 2018 for PNR Clark Phase 1,” Tugade said in his address during the commencement of works for the railway project in Barangay Tabing-Ilog in Marilao, Bulacan.

Tugade also appealed to Bulacan’s local government officials to assist the department in right-of-way issues by informing their constituents of the benefits of the railway system.

“Tulungan ninyo kami sa right of way. Hindi namin kakayanin mag-isa yan. Tulungan ninyo kami na masabihan ang ating mga kababayan na tatamaan ng proyekto para ito sa ikabubuti ng sambayanang Pilipino (We seek your help in settling right-of-way issues. We cannot do this alone. Help us inform those who might be affected by the construction of the railway project that this is for the benefit of our countrymen,” Tugade said.

< Edited >

Phase 1 of the PNR Clark Project involves the construction of the rail system along the 38-km. segment from Tutuban, Manila to Malolos, Bulacan. Once completed in 2021, it will have 10 stations and is expected to serve an estimated 340,000 passengers daily.

The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) has already approved Phase 2 of the project, a 70-km. stretch from Malolos, Bulacan to Clark, Pampanga, to be further extended north to La Union, Tuguegarao, and the Subic Freeport. (Aerol John Pateña/PNA)

MANILA – Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. and H.E. Ambassador of Japan to the Philippines Koji Haneda signed the Exchange of Notes for the 109-kilometer North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Extension Project yesterday, 21 November 2018.

The Exchange of Notes was signed on the occasion of the 6th Meeting of the Philippines-Japan High Level Joint Committee on Infrastructure Development and Economic Cooperation. The signing was witnessed by several Cabinet Secretaries for the Philippines side, and by Dr. Hiroto Izumi, Special Adviser to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and Mr. Shigeru Kiyama, Special Adviser to the Cabinet of Japan, for the Japan side.

Approved on 15 November 2018 by the Board of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), the NSCR Extension Project is part of the 147-km. NSCR System Project.

Previously divided into three different projects, the NSCR System Project will seamlessly integrate the 38-km. PNR Clark 1 from Tutuban to Malolos, the 53-km. PNR Clark 2 from Malolos to Clark International Airport, and the 56-km. PNR Calamba from Solis to Calamba.

With a Total Project Cost of PhP777.55 billion, the NSCR System Project will consist of 36 stations, 58 8-car trains (inclusive of 7 Airport Express trains), and a double-track fully elevated railway system, that will connect Region III (Central Luzon), the National Capital Region (NCR), and Region IV-A (CALABARZON). It will have seamless transfer stations with LRT-1, LRT-2, and MRT-3, as well as with the upcoming Metro Manila Subway.

The system is expected to have a ridership of 340,000 passengers per day when it partially opens in 2022, increasing to 550,000 passengers per day when it becomes fully operational in 2023.

The NSCR Extension Project will be co-financed by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB). Demonstrating its trust and support in President Rodrigo Duterte's “Build, Build, Build” program, the ADB's co-financing for the project will be its largest loan to a single project, bypassing its current largest project loan by almost twice.

Engineering teams from PNR Manila Division and DPWH NCR have reopened the Sangandaan level crossing across Samson Road in Caloocan City on 23 November 2018.

The level crossing was closed more than 20 years ago when PNR cancelled the Main North Commuter service. This level crossing is needed to extend the PNR main line north all the way to Malabon City.

The reopening of the PNR Malabon extension is also moving forward as planned. The level crossing will require safety and finishing works and would soon carry traffic between PNR Acacia flagstop station and PNR FTI station.

The North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Extension Project is set to go full steam ahead, with the construction of PNR Clark 1 (Tutuban-Malolos) commencing in February.

“That’s for the initial 38 kilometers from Tutuban to Malolos. For the extension to the North, we are starting our procurement already,” said DOTr Undersecretary for Railways TJ Batan.

Partial operability by 2022 will cover the entire segment from Clark International Airport all the way to Blumentritt station in the south, which will have an interchange station with LRT 1. By second quarter of 2023, full operations will be in place all the way to Calamba, Laguna.

The 147-kilometer NSCR Project, which is the combined PNR Clark and PNR Calamba, is projected to accommodate around 350,000 passengers per day by 2022, and at least half a million passengers daily when full operations commence in 2023.

DOTr to start building 6 stations under PNR Clark Phase 1 Project
By Aerol John Pateña May 17, 2019, 9:41 pm

https://www.pna.gov.ph/articles/1070117

MANILA -- The Department of Transportation (DOTr) will start on Monday the construction of six stations under the Tutuban to Bocaue segment of the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Project.

In a statement Friday, the DOTr said the stations that will be built are Solis, Caloocan, Valenzuela, Meycauayan, Marilao and Bocaue which comprises the first package of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) Clark Phase 1.

“The six stations will be built following the signing of the contract for the civil works of the PNR Clark Phase 1,” said the DOTr.

Assistant Secretary for Communications Goddes Hope Libiran stated in an earlier interview that the DOTr has awarded to the consortium of DMCI Holdings Inc. and a Japanese firm the first construction package of the PNR Clark Phase 1 Project.

Its second package, which runs from Bocaue to Malolos, was awarded to the consortium of Sumitomo-Mitsui Construction Co. Ltd. last January.

The civil works and building components of the project have two contract packages: the first covers elevated structures, seven stations and a depot while the second includes elevated structures and three stations.

The groundbreaking of the PNR Clark Phase 1 Project was held last February 15 in Malolos, Bulacan.

The project involves a 38-kilometer rail line from Tutuban in Manila to Malolos in the province of Bulacan, which is seen to serve around 340,000 passengers daily once it starts operations in 2021.

The DOTr expects travel time from Manila to Bulacan to be reduced by around 35 minutes from the current 1.5 hours

The 147-kilometer NSCR Project estimated to cost around PHP 777.55 billion will have 36 stations from Clark International Airport to Calamba, Laguna.

The railway project will connect PNR Clark Phase 1 (Tutuban-Malolos) PNR Clark Phase 2 (Malolos-Clark) and the PNR Calamba Project, which will run from Manila to Calamba.

It will also link with existing railway lines LRT-1, LRT-2, MRT-3 and the Metro Manila Subway. (PNA)

ADB support for PH initiatives at historic high, Finance chief says
By: Daxim L. Lucas - Reporter / @daxinq Philippine Daily Inquirer / 02:48 AM August 27, 2019

MANILA, Philippines — The Asian Development Bank’s support for the Philippine government’s infrastructure buildup program underscores the strong partnership between the multilateral lending agency and the Philippines, the head of the Duterte administration’s economic team said on Monday.

In a press statement, Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III also lauded the ADB — under the leadership of its president, Takehiko Nakao — for exploring ways of forging closer coordination with the World Bank to better respond to the needs of countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

“We are accomplishing a lot because ADB is 100 percent behind us, especially with this assistance for the Malolos-Clark Railway Project and the secondary education support program,” the Finance chief told Nacho during a recent meeting. “It is proof that the institution is very supportive of our growth.”

In particular, Dominguez cited ADB’s $2.75-billion financing for the construction of a 53.1-kilometer passenger railway connecting Malolos in Bulacan to the Clark International Airport in Pampanga, which is the multilateral institution’s single largest infrastructure investment in any of its member countries.

Last July 11, Dominguez and ADB Vice President Ahmed Saeed also signed a $1.3-billion loan agreement representing the first tranche of the bank’s loan for the Malolos-Clark Railway Project.

ADB to lend $2.6B for PH rail project
By: Ben O. de Vera - Reporter / @bendeveraINQPhilippine Daily Inquirer / 04:05 AM October 07, 2019

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is scheduled to green-light its second-biggest loan ever to its host-country the Philippines next year, this time for the massive railway project that will run between Manila and Laguna.

< Edited >

. . . the Manila-based multilateral lender’s board was expected to approve a $2.61-billion loan for the 54.6-kilometer (km) South Commuter Railway Project by the third quarter of 2020.

This year, the ADB approved its largest loan to the Philippines—$2.75 billion for the 51.2-km Malolos-Clark Railway Project and the 1.9-km Blumentritt Extension of Light Rail Transit (LRT) 1.

Just like the Malolos-Clark Railway, the South Commuter Railway between Tutuban in Manila and Calamba, Laguna, will be co-financed by the ADB and the Japanese government’s aid arm Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica), Roesner said.

< Edited >

Last January, Jica already signed with the Philippine government a 167.2-billion yen official development assistance (ODA) loan for the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Extension Project, which expanded the scope of the ongoing NSCR Phase 1 between Manila and Malolos, Bulacan, to Clark International Airport up north and Calamba down south.

< Edited >

According to the state planning agency National Economic and Development Authority, the P344.6-billion Philippine National Railways South Commuter Line will involve construction of an electrified, double-track, standard-gauge, elevated rail system, which will start operations in 2023.

Actual construction works at the Calumpit Main Site Yard of the PNR Clark Phase 1 (Manila-Bulacan)!

This facility located in Calumpit, Bulacan is a 14-hectare area that serves as the main production site for the precast segments of Contract Package 2 of the PNR Clark Phase 1. CP02 covers the construction works for three stations, namely, Balagtas, Guiginto, and Malolos.

This yard will include a batching plant for the supply of concrete to expedite precast segment production and other fabrication requirements.

Ongoing works at the yard include backfilling, which is now at 98% progress rate, piling which is targeted to be completed by mid-November, and the foundation works for the establishment of the Engineer's Office and Site Laboratory.

Furthermore, various specialized equipment such as the Tower Crane and Gantry Crane are expected to arrive soon to complement the ongoing site development work.

Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade has ordered work to be done 24/7 to accelerate completion of the project, and has mandated the consultants to provide a daily progress report.

Once PNR Clark Phase 1 is fully operational, the 37.6-kilometer mass railway system will reduce travel time between Manila and Bulacan from one (1) hour and 30 minutes to just 35 minutes. This rail line is expected to serve 300,000 passengers daily.

FIVE FOREIGN COMPANIES AND ONE LOCAL COMPANY VIE TO BUILD PNR CLARK 2 SEGMENT TO CLARK AIRPORT, DEPOT

The massive North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Project continues to draw a significant number of proposals from here and abroad, as Contract Packages 4 and 5 of the PNR Clark Phase 2 attracted one local and five international companies.

Bid submission was held Monday, 14 October 2019, at the office of the Procurement Service - Department of Budget and Management (PS-DBM).

Following the record turnout of 11 international and local bidders for Contract Packages 1-3 in August, DOTr Undersecretary for Railways TJ Batan and PNR General Manager Junn Magno noted that the sustained interest of proponents in the NSCR Project, as manifested in the level of participation for Contract Packages 4 and 5, is continuing proof of the international infrastructure industry’s trust in the Duterte Administration’s Build Build Build Program.

Jointly implemented by the DOTr and PNR, and procured through the PS-DBM, “the turnout of bidders for Packages 1-5 of PNR Clark Phase 2 is proof that competition and value for taxpayers' money are enhanced with a bidding process that is transparent, fair, and corruption-free,” Batan said.

“The vibrant turnout of proponents yet again for Contract Packages 4 and 5 reflects the solid support and trust of the international infrastructure industry in the Duterte administration. With a robust competition, we also raise the standard of quality of our infrastructures that shall, in the end, best serve the Filipino people,” Magno added.

The NSCR Project – a mega railway network spanning 148 kilometers with 37 stations – is worth PhP777.55 billion. It is co-financed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). It notably remains to be both the ADB’s fastest rail project implementation and recipient of its largest financing — further proof of the trust that the international development finance community has extended to President Rodrigo Duterte's promise of delivering the Philippines' Golden Age of Infrastructure.

PNR Clark Phase 2 is a 53-kilometer segment from Malolos, Bulacan to Clark, Pampanga, which forms part of the NSCR. This rail line will feature the country’s first airport express railway service.

Contract Package 4 consists of 8 kilometers and includes Clark International Airport Station. Contract Package 5, meanwhile, consists of the NSCR’s Clark Depot.

Companies that participated in the bidding are Acciona (Spain), EEI (Philippines), GS Engineering & Construction (Korea), Posco Engineering & Construction (Korea), PT Waskita (Indonesia), and PT Wika (Indonesia).

PNR Clark Phase 2 is targeted for partial operations by 2022. This rail line will reduce travel time between Malolos, Bulacan and Clark International Airport to just 30-35 minutes; and from Buendia in Makati to Clark Airport from 2 hours via car to just 55 minutes through the airport express. It aims to serve 340,000 passengers daily in its opening year.

Before 2019 ends, more contract packages are scheduled for bid submission and publication. These include bid submission for PNR Calamba Package 1 (1 kilometer including Blumentritt Station) on 05 November 2019, and the start of bidding for the NSCR’s 304 Commuter Train Cars, 56 Airport Express Train Cars, and Electromechanical Systems within the last quarter of 2019.
