The feasibility study for the P57.2-billion Subic-Clark Cargo Railway project is now up for National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) for approval, which, if obtained, could already pave the way for state-run Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) to start the project before the year ends.

Subic-Clark Cargo Railway Project is a 77-kilometer rail connection linking Subic Port with Clark International Airport mainly to reduce the number of trucks travelling in Metro Manila and lower the prices of goods.

The project also aims to increase Subic Port Utilization and compliment airport operation in Clark.

Subic-Clark railway construction begins 2019
June 3, 2018 | 8:09 pm   
The government’s plan to build a cargo train connecting Subic to Clark is targeted to start next year.

THE government’s plan to build a cargo train connecting Subic to Clark is targeted to start next year, Budget Secretary Benjamin E. Diokno said.

< Edited >

He said the P50.03-billion railway is part of the government’s 75 flagship infrastructure projects. It will be funded through an official development assistance from the Chinese government.

Although the train system is originally intended for cargo to maximize the use of the Subic port, Mr. Diokno said it may eventually be used for passenger travel.

The Subic-Clark cargo train has been approved by the National Economic and Development Authority Investment Coordination Committee (NEDA-ICC) in January. In April, NEDA said it is one of the projects up for review by the Board.

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) is in charge of the project. It also manages the Clark International Airport expansion, the New Clark City Mixed Use Industrial Real Estate developments, New Clark City-National Government administrative center, New Clark City-Food Processing Terminal and International Food Market and Broadband Backhaul Modular IT Facilities.

Preps begin for Phase 1 of PNR Clark railway project
By PTV News - January 6, 2018

http://defenseph.net/drp/index.php?action=post;topic=579.0;last_msg=12994

MARILAO, Bulacan — The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Philippine National Railways (PNR) began Friday various preparations for the construction of the first phase of the PNR Clark railway project that will run from Tutuban in Manila to Malolos in Bulacan province.

Pre-construction activities include site clearing, grading of unleveled surfaces, and demolition of obstructions to the PNR line.

Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said the department is committed to pursuing measures, such as doing parallel activities, to fast-track the completion of the railway project.

Tugade noted that based on previous practices, site clearing works had to wait after the awarding of a project to a general contractor.

“DOTr understands the need to complete this project faster. That is why we pursued these works parallel with the procurement of the general contractor, which is scheduled to be selected by the second quarter of 2018 for PNR Clark Phase 1,” Tugade said in his address during the commencement of works for the railway project in Barangay Tabing-Ilog in Marilao, Bulacan.

Tugade also appealed to Bulacan’s local government officials to assist the department in right-of-way issues by informing their constituents of the benefits of the railway system.

“Tulungan ninyo kami sa right of way. Hindi namin kakayanin mag-isa yan. Tulungan ninyo kami na masabihan ang ating mga kababayan na tatamaan ng proyekto para ito sa ikabubuti ng sambayanang Pilipino (We seek your help in settling right-of-way issues. We cannot do this alone. Help us inform those who might be affected by the construction of the railway project that this is for the benefit of our countrymen,” Tugade said.

Phase 1 of the PNR Clark Project involves the construction of the rail system along the 38-km. segment from Tutuban, Manila to Malolos, Bulacan. Once completed in 2021, it will have 10 stations and is expected to serve an estimated 340,000 passengers daily.

The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) has already approved Phase 2 of the project, a 70-km. stretch from Malolos, Bulacan to Clark, Pampanga, to be further extended north to La Union, Tuguegarao, and the Subic Freeport. (Aerol John Pateña/PNA)

MANILA - The Philippines will defer the signing of the commercial agreement for the China-funded Subic-Clark Railway, pending a list of 3 potential contractors from Beijing, a Filipino official said Wednesday.

The agreement may be signed later this year or early 2019 and may not be done in time for Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to Manila in November, said Transportation Undersecretary Timothy John Batan.

The Subic-Clark railway is on track for completion in 2021, he said.

Commercial Contract Signed for the Highest-Funded G2G China-Philippines Project so far

Our cooperation continues! China and the Philippines just signed the commercial contract for the Subic-Clark railway project. This is so far the highest funded G2G project between the two countries valued at approx. $940 million and is the flagship project under the administration's "Build, Build, Build" program. The 71-km single-track railway will be located in south-central Luzon, connecting Subic Bay Freeport Zone and Clark International Airport and linking the DOTr’s North Railway Project.

The construction period is estimated to last 42 months. Once completed, the railway will build resilient linkages between the commercial zones along the Subic-Clark corridor. Glad to see the improvement in logistic efficiency and other economic activities in the region.
