Ayun, mali pala info. I got them all mixed up. Pero in the end never will the proposed Pagcor Tower be the 2nd tallest.
In any case, who cares. More important is the financial and economic benefits we can reap in these kinds of projects.
Goodluck, sana maging successful ito.
Re: Airport, I think we can't really make our airport in Manila more advanced and modern. Constraints like land area hinders any room for major improvements. Minor pwede pa but converting it to a complex like other international airports di pwede. They were looking at Clark as the major airport but its distance to the capital is counter-productive.
there is no way we can rival the monaco circuit nor have a chance for a grand prix bid! India (an asian powerhouse) is already having a hard time securing a grand prix and they have world class circuits there already similar with korea.
It's not about expanding the airport. It's renovating it. Hindi naman kailangan sobrang high tech and modern kasi paniniwala ko rin wala naman kwenta yung mga high tech stuff pero sana man lang ayusin na nila yung loob
Let's give this project a chance.
Think Foreign investments.
Think job generation
Think foreign tourists ($ inflows)
Siguro naman pinag-aralan ng investors yan bago sila maglalabas ng $ nila.
This has been done before in Macau and Las Vegas, and is being now done in Singapore as one pexer noted, so maybe they are on to something here...
Police prepare security for NAIA 3 opening
07/14/2008 | 08:24 AM
MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine National Police (PNP) has increased security preparations for the opening of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 on July 22.
Radio dzBB's Benjie Liwanag Jr reported that PNP Aviation Security Group (ASG) head Chief Superintendent Atilano Morada said they are ready to protect passengers from terrorists and criminals.
Morada said his unit is also conducting continuous surveillance on the country's 85 airports to thwart any potential terrorist attack, especially during the opening of NAIA 3.
NAIA 3 is due to have its "grand opening" on July 22, the report said.
President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo last June ordered the immediate opening of NAIA 3, whose opening had been delayed for several years due to various legal issues.
Last June 30, she inspected the NAIA 3 upon her arrival from a 10-day visit to the United States. - GMANews.TV
Hindi na magiging Problema ang Airport kapag Fully Operational na ang Manila Bay Tourism City kasi ang magiging Premiere Gateway na ay ang Diosdado Macapagal International Airport.
Dmia at present boasts of 3.2 kilometer parallel runways which would later be extended to four kilometers to accommodate wide-bodied airplanes, and is equipped with an instrument landing system, navigational aids, meteorological equipment, and a complete airfield lightning system.
Dmia has also been certified by the International Civil Aviation Organization (Icao) with ratings of Category 1 for precision approach runway, and Category 9 for emergency services.
The development aims to realize Arroyo’s vision of “Clark and Subic as the country’s logistics hub in the Asia-Pacific region and the new international gateways of the country”.
Fajardo said the move is also in anticipation of the possible closure of Naia 2 which is expected to be downgraded.
She said quoting Transportation and Communications Secretary Leandro Mendoza that the Naia 1 might be downgraded and it might eventually be closed down.
She said the Naia Terminal 1 at present is still considered as the country’s premier airport but there is a need to expand and improved on the airport facilities as the government promotes the country as a good place to visit and invest in.
She said by conversion of the Dmia into the premier airport in the country, stemmed from recommendations of the DOTC, the Department of Tourism (DOT) and members of private sectors including businessmen from Pampanga, Clark and Subic.
She cited that there were cases when, due to heavy air traffic, some carriers were unable to land in the Naia runways and even wait for about 30 minutes before they could land.
She added that even if the controversial Naia Terminal 3 is opened and becomes operational, it will not be enough to accommodate the influx of tourists and investors.
The Naia 1 has a runway of about 2.6 kilometers while Dmia has 3.2 kilometers.
Fajardo assured that there are still plans to open Terminal 3 which the government hopes to be realized within the year.
She also denied that the controversy surrounding Terminal 3 and long delay in opening the airport prompted the decision to develop Dmia instead as the premier airport.
