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.

As proof of his determination to push through with the "project of the century" — the Metro Manila Subway Project, Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade unveiled to the media and the public the major parts of Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM) today, 24 February 2020, in Pasay City.

Together with representatives of the Japanese contractor, Shimizu Corporation, and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), a presentation was made showcasing the assembly timeline and how the TBMs will help accelerate the construction of MMSP.

"The Boring Machine is manufactured per specific designs. This is designed to what they found on the soil that is to be bored. Hindi 'to 'yung pupunta ka lang sa hardware at bibili ng dalawang boring machine. Hindi ho ganun 'yan. That's why it takes a little bit of time. But the moment it comes and it is assembled, the boring becomes fast and more efficient," said DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade during the briefing.

"We at the JICA are very much honored to be able to support the DOTr's effort to achieve the comfortable life for Filipinos under the 'Build, Build, Build' program of the Duterte Administration. This project is really PROGRESSING VERY FAST. And this is one of the quickest projects progressing," said JICA Senior Representative Kiyo Kiwabuchi.

TBMs are integral in building the subway as these are used to dig underground and lay the tunnels. They can excavate through a variety of ground conditions, from hard rock to sand.

The major parts of a TBM which were unveiled include the shield jack, cutter reduction gear motor, main bearings and articulation jack.

The DOTr plans to utilize 6 TBMs in the construction of the partial operability phase, or the 1st three stations of the MMSP.

Philippines’ 1st subway system ‘on track’
By Lorenz S. Marasigan -February 25, 2020

https://businessmirror.com.ph/2020/02/25/phls-1st-subway-system-on-track/

THE government is on track in building the country’s first subway system, and it is, according to the contractor for the tunnel-boring component of the deal, even ahead of schedule.

Shimizu Corp. Director Monichiro Tsuchiya said his group is finishing the assembly of a boring machine in Yokohama, Japan, where government officials will be inspecting it before it is delivered to the Philippines sometime in June.

“We are accelerating one month from July to June to assemble a boring machine,” he said. “We are on schedule.”

< Edited >

Already, spare parts for the boring machines have arrived in the Philippines. These will be used to reassemble the whole machine once it arrives in Manila.

Tunnel boring machine for MM subway arriving ahead of schedule
By Raymond Carl Dela Cruz  February 24, 2020, 6:40 pm

https://www.pna.gov.ph/articles/1094731

MANILA – The first tunnel boring machine (TBM) to be used in the construction of the Metro Manila Subway will be delivered in August of this year, about four months ahead of schedule.

In an interview during this year’s first ‘Transport Talks’ on Monday, Department of Transportation (DOTr) Undersecretary for Railways Timothy John Batan said JIM Technology, Inc. (JIMT), the Japanese firm contracted to manufacture the six TBMs for the subway, will complete the first TBM by June.

“Makapag-umpisa tayo ng tunneling natin within this year (We’ll be able to begin tunneling within this year),” Batan said.

He said manufacturing one TBM was originally projected to take 13 months at the earliest, according to its manufacturer. But after a meeting last December between JIMT and the DOTr, the manufacturing time was cut short to 11 months.

“But still, (DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade) asked if it can be further accelerated. So, we're now looking at nine to 10 months for the first unit,” he added.

After its delivery in August, Batan said the TBM will begin tunneling from the East Valenzuela Station in Barangay Ugong in Valenzuela City towards Quirino Highway Station.

The excavation for the 15 stations of the subway will start months earlier or by the second quarter of this year, he added.

Once all six TBMs are delivered, Batan further said the tunnel will run down from Valenzuela City “through Quezon City, all the way to NAIA Terminal 3, and all the way to FTI and Bicutan Stations where it will integrate with the North-South Commuter Rail – yung linya natin (our line) from Clark to Calamba.”

He said the subway will be partially operational by end of 2021 or early 2022, more than three years ahead of its projected completion by end of 2025.

“Literally, you can ride a subway train in Valenzuela, and get off at Calamba, without transferring any trains or any stations,” he added.

The TBMs, Batan said will be an “earth pressure balancing type” with a diameter of about seven meters for its cutting head, about as tall as four adults standing on top of each other.

During the event, the DOTr also showcased some spare parts of the coming tunneling machines, such as shield jack, cutter reduction gear motor, main bearings, and articulation jack.

According to the DOTr, TBMs have the advantage of limiting the disturbance to the surrounding ground and producing a smooth wall tunnel compared to conventional “hand mining.”

It added TBMs “significantly reduce” the cost of lining tunnels and such machines were suitable for use in heavily urbanized areas. (PNA)

The first-ever underground railway system in the Philippines, the Metro Manila Subway Project (MMSP), marks another breakthrough development as one of the ACTUAL Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) has undergone Factory Acceptance Test today, 04 September 2020.

Unveiled on the virtual tour earlier was one (1) of the six (6) TBMs manufactured by JIM Technology Corporation in its factory in Tsurumi Prefecture, Japan. This is expected to arrive in the Philippines by January 2021 while the succeeding will be in February 2021. This will be used to fast-track the construction of the partial operability section of the MMSP.
The TBMs are integral in building the subway as these are used to excavate tunnels using a circular cross-section mechanism. TBM can also excavate through a variety of ground conditions, from hard rock to sand.

In February of this year, the major parts of a TBM were first revealed including the shield jack, cutter reduction gear motor, main bearings and articulation jack.

With its groundbreaking ceremony held in February 2019, the Metro Manila Subway will commence partial operations in 2022 and will be fully operational by 2026.

It is expected to serve 370,000 passengers daily in its first year of full operations, with a design capacity that can accommodate up to 1.5 million passengers per day.

This will interconnect with LRT-2 at Anonas Station; with the North-South Commuter Railway at Senate, FTI, and Bicutan Stations; and with LRT-1 and MRT-7 at the Common Station, to ensure interconnectivity and convenience for passengers.
This will also feature technological advancements and disaster-resilient strategies with the guidance of Japan’s expertise in railways, that aims to strengthen the Subway’s structural integrity amid regular occurrence of typhoons and earthquakes.
The Department of Transportation will continue to work triple time to expand the country's railway network to deliver safe, reliable, efficient and extensive mass transportation to give a more comfortable life for the Filipino people.

DOTr UNVEILS CUTTER HEAD OF THE FIRST TUNNEL BORING MACHINE FOR METRO MANILA SUBWAY PROJECT

https://www.facebook.com/DOTrPH/posts/1943972185741908

The underground works for the ‘Project of the Century’ – the Metro Manila Subway – will finally commence soon as the Department of Transportation (DOTr) unveils the gigantic Cutter Head of the first Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) to be used in the line's construction.
The unveiled Cutter Head will be attached to "Kaunlaran," the first of six TBMs intended for use in the partial operability section of the subway. The unveiling was held during the Arrival Ceremony at the Manila North Centre Port Terminal today, 05 February 2021.

The Cutter Head is the largest and heaviest part of the TBM, weighing 74 tons. Its main purpose is to break, cut, and grind rocks and soil by rotating its 36-piece disc cutter, composed of 15 pieces of single and 21 pieces of twin Roller Cutter (RC).

“This Tunnel Boring Machine symbolizes its name, ‘Kaunlaran’. Today, we ask you as we applaud the coming of ‘Kaunlaran’ – I ask you in joining us in riding the Philippines’ first metro subway dahil ito ‘ho ay paglakbay papunta sa kaunlaran,” Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur P. Tugade said in his message.

The arrival of the first TBM Cutter Head signals the continuous arrival of the other TBM equipment and materials. On the following days of February 2021, the remaining parts of the machine will arrive and will be transported at the site for assembly. This will be followed by the conduct of a mandatory operational test prior to the lowering and main drive underground that is expected to be done in the third quarter of this year.

A total of 25 TBMs will be utilized for the Metro Manila Subway Project (MMSP). Each TBM has an outer diameter of 6.99 meters, 95 meters in total length, with approximately 700 tons in total weight. These enormous TBMs play an integral part in building the subway as they will be used to dig underground and lay out the tunnels. The TBMs can excavate through a variety of ground conditions, from hard rock to sand.

Meanwhile, the Transportation Chief also stressed that he will continue to challenge the railway sector and its private partners for the partial operability section of the project to be completed before 2021 ends.

“I know that I have pressured you, and I have pressured you so hard in order to have this project. But as I thank you, I assure you: I will pressure and push you harder so that we will achieve the partial operability [of the MMSP] at least in my target, December of this year; at worst, in the target of the contractors, February of next year,” Secretary Tugade said.

Guests present in the ceremony who included delegates from the Japanese government, Cabinet secretaries, government officials, and private partnershave have expressed their support for the realization of the much-awaited subway project, which is one of the flagship projects of the Duterte Administration's “BUILD, BUILD, BUILD” program.

“We will continue to support the Philippine government by utilizing our state-of-the-art technologies, and ensuring a fast and sure approach,” Japan Ambassador to the Philippines Kazuhiko Koshikawa expressed.

“I congratulate the DOTr, the JICA [Japan International Cooperation Agency], and the Japanese government for this historic and momentous event. Sa wakas po, magkakaroon na tayo ng subway. We were the first to have the LRT in the whole of Asia and although we were a bit delayed in having our subway, now we can say we have truly modernized our transportation in this country. The arrival of this equipment is significant because it contributes further to what I have described as the ‘Renaissance of Philippine Infrastructure,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque noted.

To note, the proposal to build the first subway line in Metro Manila was conceived way back in September 1973 in a study conducted by JICA's predecessor, the Japan Overseas Technical Cooperation Agency.

“On our part in this endeavor, we assure you that JICA will do everything it can to support the Philippine government and the DOTr, not only for this project, but for all the other partnerships under the BUILD, BUILD, BUILD program amidst the difficult condition we are experiencing due to COVID-19,” JICA Chief Representative Eigo Azukizawa said.

The MMSP is the first underground railway system in the country that will provide the most modern mass transportation in the National Capital Region (NCR), from Valenzuela City to Bicutan, Parañaque, and NAIA Terminal 3 in Pasay, and will further stretch across North and South zones of the Greater Capital Region.

SUBWAY IS REAL. PROGRESS IS HERE.

In an auspicious presentation, Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade unveiled the gigantic engineering marvel Cutter Head of "KAUNLARAN,"  the first among the six Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) that will be used for the partial operability section of the Philippines’ FIRST EVER METRO MANILA SUBWAY, today, 5 February 2021.

The Cutter Head is the most substantial part of the TBM, weighing 74 tons. Its main purpose is to break, cut and grind rocks and soil by rotating its 36-piece disc cutter.

In his keynote speech, Secretary Tugade emphasized why the first TBM is aptly named  “KAUNLARAN.”

“This Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) symbolizes its name, “KAUNLARAN”. Today, as we applaud the coming of Kaunlaran, I ask you, join us in riding the TBM, and in riding the first Metro Subway because ito ‘ho ay paglakbay papunta sa KAUNLARAN,” Secretary Tugade underscored.

The transportation chief added, “Mr. President, the Metro Manila Subway is one of the answers of DOTr in answering your clarion call of making the Filipino life comfortable. This TBM, and the five more that are coming, so that we achieve partial operability by December of this year, is our way of saying this morning: ‘Mr. President, we are committed to make the Filipino life comfortable.”

DOTr Undersecretary for Railways Timothy John Batan noted that the Metro Manila Subway Project (MMSP), along with other 12 railway projects throughout the country, are being implemented at record scale and at record pace. He proudly stated that to  further fast-track the roll out of the MMSP, a fleet of 25 Japanes-made Tunnel Boring Machines or (TBMs) will be utilized.

“To accelerate the construction of the Metro Manila Subway Project and to minimize road interference during construction, we will be using not just 1 but a fleet of 25 Japanese-made Tunnel Boring Machines or (TBMs),” Usec. Batan explained.

Meanwhile, Japanese Ambassador to the Philippines Kazuhiko Koshikawa commended the DOTr for its efficient approach in realizing the project, and expressed Japan’s full commitment to support the Philippine government in realizing the much-needed transport infrastructure projects of the country.

“We will continue to support the Philippine government, by utilizing our state of the art technologies, and ensuring a fast and sure approach,” Ambassador Koshikawa expressed.

For his part, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Chief Representative Eigo Azukizawa, likewise assures the Philippine government that the agency will continue to do all the best it can, not just for the project but for the whole projects under the Duterte Administration’s “Build, Build, Build” Program.

“We assure you that JICA will do everything it can, not only for this project, but also for other BBB projects,” Chief Representative Azukizawa said.

During the event, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, Jr., Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar, and Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Benhur Abalos also conveyed their messages and commendations to the DOTr, led by Secretary Tugade.

Spokesperson Roque said, “On behalf of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, allow me first to congratulate the DOTr, the JICA and the Japanese government for this historic and momentous event. Sa wakas po, magkakaroon na tayo ng subway.”

He added, “Let today’s event be recorded in the annals of the Philippine history as another first of the Duterte administration.”
For his part, Secretary Villar shared all the hardwork that Secretary Tugade had put in, just to fulfill and realize the MMSP.

“I remember going with you to Japan. Even though we are not directly involved in this subway, I was there to witness what you had to go through to go to this point—the work that you have put in, I don’t think anyone will ever really truly know or appreciate the hard work that it took to get to this point,” Secretary Villar said.

Lauding the success of the event, Chairman Abalos said that the project is vital, particularly in making the country’s transport and traffic system efficient and effective.

“As the first subway railway system that will provide mass transport in the National Capital Region (NCR), the MMDA strongly believes that accelerating our mass transport system with this unified subway station will steer us the right course,” Chairman Abalos said.

The arrival of the first TBM Cutter Head also signals the continuous arrival of the other TBM equipment and materials. Furthermore, on the following days of February 2021, the remaining parts of the machine will arrive and will be transported at the site for assembly, which will then be followed by the conduct of mandatory operational test prior to the lowering and main drive underground. It is expected to be done in the third quarter of this year.

President and CEO Roberto Jose Castillo of SFTE-JV—the contractor of the project, expresses the company’s commitment in expediting the construction of the project.

“We commit to you the best that we can to try to finish this and make it partially operational by December. We will hire as many people, to be able to deliver the project as required by the DOTr and the Filipino people,” President and CEO Castillo said.

The MMSP is the first underground railway system in the country that will provide the most modern mass transportation in the National Capital Region (NCR), from Valenzuela City to Bicutan, Parañaque, and NAIA Terminal 3 in Pasay, and will further stretch across North and South zones of the Greater Capital Region.

Key officials who were also present in the event are Department of Finance (DOF) Secretary Carlos Dominguez, Valenzuela 1st District Congressman Weslie Gatchalian, Economic Minister Masahiro Nakata of the Embassy of Japan in the Philippines, and Embassy of Japan Economic Affairs First Secretary Kudo Hiroyuki.

That is actually work on the Makati Intra-city Subway. A completely separate project that isn't directly connected to the larger Mega Manila Subway, but it is planned to connect to MRT-3 and the the Pasig River Ferry (and the SkyTrain monorail, if that project ever gets off the ground).

Whoops.

Good a time as any to use this as a way to start the Makati subway thread that I just haven't gotten around to kicking off.
