NEDA BOARD APPROVES MINDANAO RAILWAY PROJECT - PHASE 1

https://www.facebook.com/DOTrPH/posts/1541781092627688

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.

Nat’l govt allots 500M for land acquisition in Tagum for Mindanao railway project
Posted on December 17, 2018
   
by Tagum City Information Office

https://tagumcity.gov.ph/natl-govt-allots-500m-for-land-acquisition-in-tagum-for-mindanao-railway-project/

TAGUM CITY—In a move seen to fast-track the implementation of the Mindanao Railway Project, the national government will soon download the 500 million peso-budget to the City Government of Tagum intended for the land acquisition to pave way for the kick off of the construction of the first phase of the ambitious project connecting the capital cities of the provinces of Davao del Norte and Davao del Sur.

This as the national government, through the Department of Transportation, and the City Government of Tagum signed the Memorandum of Agreement which allows the transfer of the fund culled out from the 5.6 billion budget provided in the General Appropriations Act solely for land acquisition and fees for the services on appraisal, survey works and administrative costs needed under the project.

Under the MOA, the local government is tasked to prepare and submit a program of work for the acquisition of the affected lots and improvements found thereon, including related and ancillary activities.

Actual payment to the affected property owners will also be carried out by the LGU using the downloaded funds, as incorporated in the agreement.No less than DOTr Assistant Secretary Eymard Eje and Tagum City Mayor Allan Rellon inked the agreement at the City Hall of Tagum Monday, December 17, 2018, and witnessed by City Hall executives.

The total fund to be spent on property payments, however, has yet to be ascertained pending the ground survey and land valuation activities, the cost of which will be dictated by prevailing market rates.

The Tagum segment of the project will host the 10-hectare main depot of the railway and will be mainly located in Barangay Mankilam.

Data from the City Planning and Development Office revealed that a total of 158 families in Tagum will be affected in the project living in seven puroks in Barangays Mankilam and San Miguel.

In a recent development, the national government will also allocate considerable amount for the relocation of informal settlers affected in the said project.The Mindanao Railway Project, which is part of the Build Build Build Program of the Duterte Administration, will connect key cities in Mindanao and is expected to spur economic growth in the region.Construction of this railway project is expected to commence on February 2019.

From September 10, 2018

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=TagumPhotographer&set=a.2216386618389990

TAGUM CITY - With the construction of the Tagum-Davao-Digos Segment (TDD) of the Mindanao Railway Project (MRP) slated to commence in February 2019, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the City Government of Tagum have called on the owners of the properties that would be greatly affected by the railway project to opt for a negotiated sale between the landholders and the national government to fast-track the process of acquiring the lands for this big ticket project.

This, after Ms. Patmei B. Ruivivar, the OIC- Project Manager of the TDD segment of the railway project in the island stated during the Right of Way and Site Acquisition (ROWSA) Stakeholders Engagement that the DOTr would only have until the month of December of the current year to hold the funds needed to pay the just compensation of the property owners as the funds would be reverted back to the national coffers of the country.

Tagged as the biggest project in Mindanao under the Build Build Build Program of President Rodrigo Duterte, the MRP’s TDD segment will be affecting 158 households in Barangay Mankilam’s Purok Lumboy, Magkidong, Mangga, Orchids, Papaya and Abaca, and Purok 9 in Barangay San Miguel, with Purok Abaca in Mankilam bearing the brunt as 60 families will need to sell their land to the national government in exchange of a just compensation.

Notably, in a Negotiated Sale, the value of the property, which will be determined by a private, independent appraiser accredited by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, will be based on a Fair Market Value (FMV) so as to fairly compensate the property owners for their land and all the improvements thereon.

City Assessor Alfredo Silawan, however, stated that should the appraiser and the property owner fail to come to an agreement with regard to the amount of the just compensation, and with the current year already coming to a close, the national government would be compelled to resort to the Doctrine of Expropriation where authorities would take possession of the property from the owner to ensure that the commencement of the railway project will not be derailed and thus would redound to the benefit of the public.

Additionally, it was stated that in a case of expropriation, the value of the property affected would be based on the Zonal Value set by the local government unit, the amount of which is lower than the FMV offered by the independent appraiser for a Negotiated Sale.

The DOTr has said that the TDD Segment of the MRP would have a length of 102 kilometers with dual and electrified tracks that would service six passenger trains having 5-car Electronic Multiple Units (EMU); the trains would have an operating speed of 100 kph.

Incidentally, the first phase of the railway project would bring about more jobs for Tagumenyos as priority would be given to residents of Tagum in relation to the construction of the station, the depot and the tracks; its maintenance is poised to be properly addressed by local residents who are being encouraged to undertake courses in railway engineering through the Philippine Railway Institute which is being established by the national government to ensure that the human resources manning the project is on par with the international standards and practices.

During the stakeholders’ engagement, the role of the local government of Tagum in the TDD Project Coordinating Body was highlighted, with Mayor Allan Rellon named as part of the Steering Committee; the coordinating body was formed to ensure that ownership and control of the project will remain with the stakeholders in the region and that the implementation of the project will be done in a manner that is more efficient, inclusive and transparent.

The City Planning Officer, City Engineer, City Assessor, Head of Traffic Management Office, the ABC President and the SP Chair on Infrastructure /Public Works were also tagged as members of the body’s technical working group (TWG) whose functions include the facilitation of the right-of-way acquisition and clearance from obstructions along the project alignment and facilitation of community acceptance of the project, among others.

The highly coveted multi-billion project to be built in Mindanao which aims to shorten travel time in traversing the Mindanao provinces is set to be constructed in the second quarter of 2021.

For this, LGU-Tagum is at full throttle to complete the pre-construction phase of the project which includes land development, land acquisition and transfer of title among others, since the construction will commence in Tagum by next year.

Pegged at Php 82-Billion, the Phase 1 of this Mindanao Railway Project is stretched covering Tagum, Carmen, Panabo, Mudiang, Magtood, Toril, Sta. Cruz, and Digos City.

Hype-worthy as it is, the Tagum City Train Station which will showcase modern structural designs is set to be erected at a 3-hectare land in Mankilam in addition to the 10-hectare land to be used as the project depot.
