Public Transportation in the Philippines: A Glimpse of the Future - JAPANESE-FUNDED RAILWAY PROJECTS


Watch: A glimpse of the future for the Public Transportation in the Philippines, as we unveil the ongoing JAPANESE-FUNDED RAILWAY PROJECTS of the Department of Transportation (DOTr).

Here’s a sneak peek of the following ongoing JAPANESE-FUNDED RAILWAY PROJECTS of the Department of Transportation (DOTr):

- North-South Commuter Railway Project

- PNR Clark Phase 1 (Tutuban to Malolos, Bulacan)

- PNR Clark Phase 2 (Malolos to Clark, Pampanga)

- PNR Calamba (Manila to Calamba, Laguna)

- Metro Manila Subway (Quezon City to NAIA)

- LRT-1 Cavite Extension (Baclaran to Niog, Cavite)

- LRT-2 East Extension (Pasig to Masinag, Antipolo) 

- MRT-3 Rehabilitation and Maintenance

- Philippine Railway Institute

These game changing railways initiatives  form part of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s massive "Build, Build, Build" Infrastructure Program, as carried out under the visionary leadership of DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade. 

These projects are now underway and are right on track for completion with their target deadline dates. Once operational, these mass transport systems will enable our dream of progress and development, as well as full connectivity and mobility, to become reality. 

Exciting times indeed!

Rail transportation in the Philippines is currently used mostly to transport passengers within Metro Manila and the nearby province of Laguna, as well as a commuter service in the Bicol Region. Freight transport services once operated in the country, but these services were halted. However, there are plans to restore old freight services and build new lines

DuterteNomics or Dutertenomics is a catch-all term referring to the socioeconomic policies of Rodrigo Duterte, President of the Philippines. A significant part of the policy includes the development of infrastructure and industries.[1] The program also involves the continuation of some projects under the previous administration of President Benigno Aquino III

PHL, Japan meeting on Build, Build, Build projects

PHILIPPINE and Japanese officials are set to meet on Wednesday (October 28), to discuss the progress of Japan-funded infrastructure projects under the government’s “Build, Build, Build” program.

In a statement on Tuesday, the Department of Finance said this meeting would happen via videoconferencing for the first time as travel restrictions remain amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 10th Japan-Philippines Joint Committee on Infrastructure Development and Economic Cooperation will also be the first time that the bilateral panel will convene under the new administration of Japan Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.

Chairing the Philippine side in the committee is Finance Secretary Carlos G. Dominguez III while Dr. Hiroto Izumi, the special advisor to Prime Minister Suga, is expected to lead the Japanese side.

Besides discussing the status of Japan-funded Build, Build, Build projects, this high-level panel will also provide updates from both sides on Japan’s assistance to the Philippines’s Covid-19 response efforts. Both sides will also tackle the impact of Covid-19 on the implementation of the Japan-supported projects and the safety of workers and other personnel involved in their construction.

For its part, the Philippines will share developments on the  Mindanao peace process, the ongoing rehabilitation of Marawi City, and the new Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).

On the other hand, Japan will provide updates on its ongoing assistance to Mindanao under the framework of the Japan-Bangsamoro Initiatives for Reconstruction and Development (J-BIRD) and other programs designed to help promote stability and economic growth in the new autonomous region.

Among the Japan-funded infrastructure projects that the committee is expected to discuss in the October 28 meeting are the Metro Manila Subway Project (Phase I), North-South Railway Project, Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) Rehabilitation Project, Davao City Bypass Construction Project, and the Cebu-Mactan Bridge and Coastal Road Construction Project.

Since the start of the Duterte administration, 15 loan agreements have been signed between the Philippines and Japan worth a combined JPY679.3 billion (approximately P317 billion or $6.24 billion), of which 11 involve the construction of big-ticket projects under “Build, Build, Build.”
