Background

1.1. The PNR South Long Haul (SLH) Project

The South Long Haul involves the frontend studies and surveys, statutory submissions, tender, construction, testing & commissioningdesign and construction of an estimated 639 kilometer railway in four major segments. Segment A is from Manila to Naga, Camarines Sur; Segment B is from Naga to Legazpi, Albay; Segment C is from Legazpi to Matong, Sorsogon. Segment D is from Calamba, Laguna to Batangas Port, Batangas. It will maximize the use of the existing PNR right-of-way (“ROW”). However, to achieve higher levels of service, new ROW may be acquired.

1.3.2 Infrastructure

The rail infrastructure will include the construction of at-grade, elevated, and underground sections. The South Long Haul will initially be non-electrified and mainly single-tracked with turnouts and passing tracks at key points. The track gauge will be standard gauge (1,435 mm).

Between Manila and Los Baños, it will be alongside the PNR South Commuter (see below for one possible configuration)

< Edited >

1.3.5 Depot

There will be several depots for the South Long Haul. Sites in Los Banos, Naga, and Legazpi have been identified as possible depot locations. Other depot sites may be identified as necessary for the ultimate size of the fleet.
