PHL, Japan Sign Exchange of Notes for North-South Commuter Railway Extension Project

https://www.facebook.com/DOTrPH/photos/a.132771066862038/1245190675620066/?type=3&theater

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.

Officials of the Philippines and Japan on Monday signed two loan agreements cumulatively worth P98.69 billion to finance railway and flood control projects in the country.

< Edited >

The first covers an P80.47-billion loan covering the first tranche of Japan's total commitment to provide funding for the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Extension Project.

The NSCR Extension Project covers the 56-kilometer line from Manila to Calamba in Laguna that forms part of the 147-kilometer NSCR System of the Philippine National Railways (PNR).

The system is also connected to the 38-kilometer line from Manila to Malolos in Bulacan, and the 53-kilometer line from Malolos, Bulacan to Clark in Pampanga.

The loan agreement for the NSCR Extension carries an interest rate of 0.1 percent per annum for non-consulting services, and 0.01 percent per annum for consulting services.

The loan is repayable within 40 years, inclusive of a 12-year grace period.

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)

The 37.6 kilometer PNR line from Tutuban to Malolos broke ground last February and is expected to be completed by 2022. The 53-kilometer extension from Malolos to Clark and the 56-kilometer line from Tutuban to Calamba are still undergoing right of way acquisitions with the former 90% complete. The DOTr is working to get shovels on the ground this year so as to complete them by 2022.

Site preparatory and actual construction works of the North-South Commuter Railway Project known as the PNR-Clark Phase 1 (Tutuban-Malolos segment).

According to the Sumitomo-Mitsui Construction Corp.(SMCC), part of the ongoing works are the two (2) temporary yards, wherein one (1) yard is located at Tuktukan in Bulacan for the concrete or foundation works of the project including the batching plant, and the other one (1) is located at Calumpit, Bulacan for the viaducts.

While the trial drilling, actual drilling of holes and lowering of rebar cage are already done, the casting of concrete is scheduled on Monday, July 1. A total of twenty-two (22) out of ninety-eight (98) north rail piers were already demolished.

Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade ordered work to be done 24/7 to accelerate the completion of the project, and instructed NS Tren, the consultant, to submit a daily progress report of the PNR-Clark Phase 1.

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

Concrete posts put up in 2013 for the Northrail project stand idly on MacArthur Highway in Malolos, stretching from Fausta Road to Calumpit town in Bulacan.

Glen Reyes, Bulacan provincial engineer, said the local government was not aware if the structures would be used in the new railway project.
