NEDA BOARD APPROVES MINDANAO RAILWAY PROJECT - PHASE 1

The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Board has confirmed the earlier approval given by the NEDA Investment Coordination Committee - Cabinet Committee (ICC-CabCom) for the Tagum-Davao-Digos segment or Phase 1 of the Mindanao Railway Project (MRP-TDD).

In its meeting on Friday, 29 November 2019, the NEDA Board confirmed the 10 July 2019 and 27 September 2019 approvals given by the ICC-CabCom for the project.

DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade thanked the decision of the NEDA Board, saying the move brings the Mindanao Railway Project closer to realization.

“This builds on the dream of President Rodrigo Duterte to generate development in Mindanao through an efficient rail system that will not only move people throughout the island of Mindanao, but will also generate needed economic growth,” said Secretary Tugade.

The MRP-TDD is the first phase of the proposed 830-kilometer MRP Loop. It aims to establish a 74-km at-grade and 26-km elevated (viaduct) commuter railway from Tagum City in Davao del Norte to Digos City in Davao del Sur.

Phase 1 will have eight stations located in Tagum, Carmen, Panabo, Mudiang, Davao, Toril, Sta. Cruz, and Digos.

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary and Government Infrastructure Cluster head Mark Villar positively noted the NEDA Board’s decision.

“This project will surely benefit those who call Mindanao their home, and also those doing business in the island. As the first railway to be built outside of Luzon, the MRP will transform the socio-economic landscape of Mindanao,” Secretary Villar said.

For his part, Presidential Adviser for Flagship Programs and Projects, Secretary Vince Dizon, emphasized the President’s vision of spurring economic growth throughout the country through infrastructure development.

“The BBB Program has one clear aspiration, that is, to spread development not just in major urban centers but throughout the country. The Mindanao Railway Project as a major transport infrastructure development is part of the realization of this goal,” Secretary Dizon stated.

Phase 1 of the Mindanao Railway Project is designed to accommodate around 130,000 passengers per day in its first year of full operations. Once fully operational, travel time between Tagum City to Digos City will be reduced from currently 3.5 hours to just 1.3 hours.

Partial operations are targeted by the second quarter of 2022 for the Tagum-Davao line, while full operations for the Tagum-Davao-Digos line will be in the fourth quarter of 2022.

DAVAO RDC TACKLES THE MINDANAO RAILWAY PROJECT TAGUM-DAVAO-DIGOS SEGMENT

http://rdc11.neda.gov.ph/davao-rdc-tackles-the-mindanao-railway-project-tagum-davao-digos-segment/

The Regional Development Council (RDC) XI convened for a special meeting on 21 July 2020 via video teleconference to discuss matters on the implementation of the Mindanao Railway Project Tagum-Davao-Digos Segment (MRP-TDD). The MRP-TDD is among the Davao Region’s Priority Projects for 2019 – 2022. The PhP 81.69 Billion project was approved by the NEDA Board on 29 November 2019.

Department of Transportation (DOTr) Undersecretary for Railways, USec. Timothy John R Batan, and National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Officer-in-Charge for Investment Programming, ASec. Jonathan L. Uy, graced the special meeting as resource persons. Among the highlights was the updated timeline for the implementation of the MRP-TDD in view of the postponed field operations due to the COVID-19 quarantine. Atty. Clipton Solamo of the DOTr MRP Project Management Office reported that the validation of affected parcels in Digos City, Davao City, Panabo City, Carmen, and Tagum City is at 100%, while the Municipality of Sta. Cruz was at 69%. Atty. Solamo further reported that the tagging of structures will be at 100% before the end of July 2020.



DOTr targeted the commencement of construction for the MRP-TDD by the first quarter of 2021, and committed partial operation of the TDD line by the first quarter of 2022. DOTr and DPWH are currently undertaking a study to resolve the alignment interfaces between the MRP-TDD and the ongoing Davao City Bypass Construction project, which will commence construction in the third quarter of 2020.

The Mindanao Railway Project and its future phases will be further discussed by the NEDA Board Regional Development Committee – Mindanao Area Committee (RDCom-MAC). The RDCom-MAC shall provide the venue for other Mindanao Regional Development Councils to be involved in the prioritization of MRP development in the regions and to subsequently engage other stakeholders.
