Bulacan airport construction seen to start in September
By: Miguel R. Camus - @inquirerdotnet Philippine Daily Inquirer / 05:09 AM June 24, 2019

San Miguel Corp. (SMC) is readying construction teams for its proposed international air gateway in Bulacan province—the conglomerate’s answer to worsening congestion in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) in Manila.

SMC president Ramon S. Ang said the company was prepared to start its P735.6-billion aerotropolis in Bulakan, Bulacan province, roughly 50 kilometers northwest of Manila, once the government gives the go-ahead.

The airport project, which will cover about 2,500 hectares, is in the midst of a competitive bidding process. No challengers have emerged since the tender was launched by the Department of Transportation last April. It was earlier decided that the winner will be the company that can offer the government with the most land, a huge cost barrier for many interested groups.

With no rival bids, the New Manila International Airport (NMIA) project in Bulacan is poised to be granted to San Miguel Holdings Corporation.

DOTr will immediately issue the Notice of Award to San Miguel, after a recommendation is made by the Technical Working Group (TWG). Meanwhile, the Notice to Proceed is expected by the first week of September.

The NMIA project involves the construction, operation, and maintenance of an international airport located in Bulakan, Bulacan. It will include the construction of an 8.4-kilometer tollway that will connect NMIA to the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) in Marilao, Bulacan.

The NMIA will have a design capacity of 100 million passengers annually, and airside facilities with a configuration of four parallel runways. It forms part of the “basket of solutions” of the DOTr to help decongest the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

The NMIA is expected to be operational within four to six years from the start of construction, which is targeted before the end of this year.

"They (SMHC) have 20 days to comply with our conditions. We can issue the Notice of Award within five days based on the recommendation of the TWG. The Secretary wants to start the groundbreaking of the construction by the last quarter of this year," said Bids and Awards Committee chairman and DOTr Assistant Secretary for Procurement and Project Implementation Giovanni Lopez.

Construction works for Bulacan Airport are set to commence before the end of the year.

This comes as the Department of Transportation (DOTr) concluded the Swiss Challenge for the unsolicited proposal of San Miguel Holdings Corporation (SMHC) today, 31 July 2019.

In the opening of bids conducted by the DOTr’s Bids and Awards Committee (BAC), there were no rivals to challenge the original proponent for the construction, operation and maintenance of the international airport.

DOTr Assistant Secretary for Procurement and Project Implementation Giovanni Lopez, who also leads the Bids and Awards Committee (BAC), said that the Notice of Award to SMHC will be issued immediately after a recommendation from the Technical Working Group (TWG) is made within three days. It will then be submitted by BAC to the DOTr Aviation and Airports Sector within five days.

“On the notice of award, there are some conditions that should be complied with. These include post performance security, proof of commitment, among others as stated in the law. They (SMHC) have 20 days to do so,” explained Asec. Lopez.

Once the Notice to Proceed is issued between August and the first week of September, the SMHC shall then be in charge of the financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance of Bulacan Airport.

DOTr Secretary Arthur P. Tugade expressed enthusiasm with the progress on the airport project.

“This new international airport is important in helping ease the congestion of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. Together with the expansion of Clark Airport and the construction of additional facilities at Sangley Airport, Bulacan Airport is part of ‘baskets of solutions’ to bring further connectivity to the Filipino people,” Secretary Tugade said.

For his part, DOTr Usec. for Planning and Project Development Ruben Reinoso Jr. noted that the Bulacan Airport is part of a larger regional development plan for Central Luzon.

“Along with other big-ticket infrastructure projects such as the Clark Airport expansion, North-South Commuter Railway, MRT-7 and the Subic-Clark Cargo Railway, the Bulacan Airport will help boost economic development in Region III,” Usec. Reinoso said.

The Bulacan Airport will have a design capacity of 100 million passengers per year but can be expanded to 200 million. With four parallel runways planned, it targets 240 aircraft movements per hour. The project will also include the construction of an 8.4-kilometer tollway that will connect the airport to the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) in Marilao, Bulacan.

The new international gateway is expected to be operational within four to six years from the start of construction. SMHC is expected to break ground and start actual construction of the project before the end of this year.

https://www.facebook.com/DOTrPH/photos/a.395811647224644/1433945260077939/

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) formally issued the Notice of Award (NOA) to San Miguel Holdings Corporation (SMHC) for the Bulacan International Airport project today, 14 August 2019.

Under the NOA, SMHC will undertake the financing, design, construction, supply, completion, testing, commissioning, and operation and maintenance of the new international gateway.

With the NOA in place, SMHC is required to submit the necessary documents to the DOTr Special Bids and Awards Committee (SBAC) within 20 days after receipt of the NOA.

DOTr Undersecretary for Planning and Project Implementation Benny Reinoso commended the willingness of SMHC in taking the lead in the construction of the Bulacan International Airport. He noted that once completed, the project will help in decongesting the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), while also providing the traveling public a world-class airport geared to give the Filipino people a comfortable life.

“Finally, we can push forward with the Bulacan International Airport. Malaking ginhawa po ito para sa mga kababayan natin sa Central Luzon at northern part ng Metro Manila. Once operational, this new airport will give connectivity options to our citizens,” Usec. Reinoso said.

On 31 July 2019, the DOTr concluded the Swiss Challenge for the unsolicited proposal of SMHC, where no other party challenged the original proponent for the construction of the airport.

Through a Resolution and Executive Brief dated 01 August 2019, the SBAC Technical Working Group (TWG) recommended the contract to be awarded to SMHC.

Under the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR), if no comparative or competitive proposal or no complying bid is received by the agency, the original proponent shall immediately be awarded the contract.

The Bulacan International Airport is expected to commence construction by the end of the year, and is targeted for operations within four to six years.

Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur P. Tugade today approved the Notice to Proceed for San Miguel Aerocity Inc. to commence construction of the Bulacan International Airport.

The announcement came on the heels of the signing of the concession agreement for the airport development project.

Secretary Tugade and San Miguel Corporation (SMC) President and COO Ramon S. Ang signed the contract, which covers a 50-year concession period.

Under the agreement, San Miguel will undertake the financing, design, construction, supply, completion, testing, commissioning, and operation and maintenance (O&M) of the new international gateway.

With a design capacity of up to 200 million passengers annually and plans for four parallel runways, the Bulacan International Airport is seen to help decongest the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and complement the operations of Clark International Airport (CRK).

According to Secretary Tugade, the Bulacan Airport aims to enhance the mobility and connectivity of air-riding Filipinos through an additional choice of gateway.

"Ang mahalaga po diyan ay 'yung pasahero, 'yung riding public. Alam niyo 'ho kung bakit? Pagkat kung meron nang Bulacan Airport, NAIA at Clark Airport, let it be a battle of commercial competitiveness. And if it becomes a battle of commercial competitiveness, who benefits? It is the riding public, because the riding public will be given a freedom of choice. Pwedeng mamili kung saan gustong paliparan.. Pwedeng mamili kung saang comfort and convenience ang tutukuyin niya. Ito 'ho 'yung mahalaga dito. It's all about comfort. It's all about convenience. It's all about putting life to the President's wish and desire for a comfortable life for Filipinos," Secretary Tugade expressed.

For the part of San Miguel, Ang hopes that the airport will help boost economic growth in Central Luzon.

"This will really benefit our people and it will create a lot of business opportunities for Filipinos. It will bring so much foreign tourists," the SMC top honcho said.

"Pagtulungan po nating gawin ito, sapagkat gaganda ang buhay ng mga kababayan natin," Ang added.

San Miguel is expected to begin construction before the year ends, with a target to commence airport operations in four to six years.
