MANILA — An initial batch of Philippine Railway Institute (PRI) personnel will be training in Japan this July, an official of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said on Wednesday.

“The training which shall focus on railway operations and management will be done in batches,” DOTr Assistant Secretary for Communications Goddess Hope Libiran told the Philippine News Agency (PNA).

She said a total of 14 personnel from the project management office of the Metro Manila Subway Project will train for seven days at the Tokyo Metro Training Center at no cost to the government since it is fully funded by a grant from the Japanese government.
 
Further training sessions will be conducted on the following dates:

October 2019: 10 to 15 PRI personnel for seven days

April 2020: 10-15 personnel for seven days

June 2020: 10-15 personnel for seven days

September to December 2020: 30 personnel for three months

The trainings will be held as the DOTr prepares for the partial operations of the railway institute set in October this year.

< Edited >

Full operations of the PRI are scheduled in 2021 after completion of its 20,000-square meter building at a four-hectare site at the Metro Manila Subway depot in Valenzuela City.

Sinimulan na ang Metro Manila Subway project, na kauna-unahang underground railway system sa Pilipinas. Ginhawa raw ito sa commuters, pero habang ginagawa ito, kailangan munang mag-tiis sa matinding traffic.

CONSTRUCTION OF METRO MANILA SUBWAY PROJECT FORMALLY STARTS WITH SITE CLEARING WORKS AT VALENZUELA DEPOT

https://www.facebook.com/DOTrPH/posts/1558787554260375

The dream of giving the country its first-ever subway or underground railway system finally pushes into reality as the Department of Transportation (DOTr) formally starts with clearing works in the Partial Operability (PO) Section of the Metro Manila Subway Project.

The Partial Operability Section of the subway comprises the first stations in Valenzuela City and Quezon City, the line's depot in Valenzuela City, and buildings for the Philippine Railway Institute (PRI), the country's first-ever railway training center.

A ceremony to formalize the start of the subway's construction was held at the depot site in Barangay Ugong in Valenzuela City today, 21 December 2019. The depot site is also where the subway line's East Valenzuela Station will be located.

Dubbed as the “Project of the Century,” the underground rail line is expected to serve 370,000 passengers daily in its first year of full operations, and is targeted to be partially operable by 2021.

Once completed and fully operational, the Metro Manila Subway Project will have a total of 15 stations, including a terminal station at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3.

Part of the ceremony was the distribution of checks and the signing of deeds of absolute sale with project-affected landowners, as well as a testimonial video presentation of project-affected informal settler families that have already been relocated to Valenzuela’s Disiplina Village.

This formal start of clearing operations at the subway's Valenzuela depot is part of DOTr’s continuing efforts to muster all factors needed in building the underground railway project and in dealing with right-of-way acquisition issues.

DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade, who led the ceremony, noted the progress in the right-of-way acquisition both in terms of acquiring land from legal owners and relocation of informal settler families.

A total of 460 lots are required for the partial operability section of the subway, out of which 364 offers to buy have already been issued based on current market value appraised by Landbank.

Owners of 285 lots out of the 364 lots that the government had already offered to buy, have accepted or are already completing documentation requirements for selling their properties to the government for the project.

A batch of project-affected landowners were present during the ceremony and received their check payments.

As for informal settler families, 178 out of 183 affected families have already been resettled to a better and safer location in Disiplina Village in Barangay Bignay, Valenzuela City with the support of the Valenzuela City local government.

“This gathering today is the primodial trigger to be able to start the subway. That is why this gathering is important. Wala naman ‘hong proyektong mai-implement kung ‘yung babagtasin mo na daan ay hindi pa nasolusyunan. Ngayong araw na ‘hong ito ang signal na para bang sinasabi nating parating na ang subway,” Secretary Tugade expressed.

Following the official transfer of the properties from the landowners to the DOTr, contractors then started the clearing and fencing of portions of the depot.

“With our funding in place, contractor signed-up, detailed designs completed, and right-of-way substantially acquired, and under the strong willed leadership of our leader, Secretary Arthur Tugade, partial operability of the Duterte Administration's flagship Metro Manila Subway Project is on track to delivering its promise of a more comfortable life to every Filipino,” DOTr Undersecretary for Railways Timothy John Batan said in his message.
