    Construction begins on BGC - Ortigas Bridge

    Construction begins on BGC - Ortigas Bridge



    The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) held a ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of a 4-lane 961 lineal-meter bridge that would cross the Pasig River, connecting Lawton Avenue in Makati City to Sta. Monica Street in Pasig City on July 19, 2017.

    When completed in March of 2020, the bridge is expected to cut the one-hour drive between Bonifactio Global City and the Ortigas Business District to a mere 12 minutes, greatly enhancing the accessibility between the two business districts.

    The ground-breaking ceremony was led by DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar who said that this was but the first of new infrastructure projects that will happen under the next five years under the “Golden Age of Infrastructure” of the current administration.

    The project falls under the supervision of the DPWH Unified Project Management Office – headed by Undersecretary Emil K. Sadain, along with its contractor partners Persan Construction Inc., and Sino Road and Bridge Company Limited Inc.

    The Sta Monica to Lawton Bridge is the first of 12 new bridges to be build crossing the Pasig River and Manggahan Floodway that have been earmarked as urgent by the current administration.

    The other planned bridges are the: North and South Habor Bridge; 2nd Ayala Bridge (Carlos Palanca-San Marcelino); Beata-F.Y. Manalo Bridge (Pandacan-Sta. Ana); F. Blumentritt-Antipolo Bridge; Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge; Kabayani-Katipunan Bridge; Reposo-Guatemala Bridge; J.P. Rizal-Yale Bridge; G. Gabriel St.-Mercury Ave. Bridge; East Bank-West Bank Bridge 1, and; East Bank-West Bank Bridge 2.


    Two of the twelve bridges will be constructed under a full grant from the People’s Republic of China.

    Based on the latest renders of SS3 especially S2 and S4 during the photo-op brothers walk-through earlier today:

    - S2 will now use San Juan River (motels in Sta. Mesa saved )
    - S4 terminal point will now end just beyond the Quirino highway ramps at NLEX - RSA really had to do this para iwas traffic sa Balintawak cloverleaf area, not to mention MVP's Connector Road has a seamless interconnection at SMART Connect Interchange

    Thumbs down

    Mga buma-byaheng unit ng Uber at Grab, umabot na sa 120,000
    By RMN News TEAM - Aug. 3, 2017 at 9:01am

    Manila, Philippines – Ikinagulat ng LTFRB at mga mambabatas ang bilang ng mga Transport Network Companies na Grab at Uber.

    Sa pagdinig ng transportation committee sa kamara, sinabi ni LTFRB Chairman Martin Delgra, ikinagulat nila ang sinumiteng listahan na nasa 120,000 ang mga bumabyaheng Grab at Uber.

    Aniya, ito ang unang pagkakataon na sinabi ng Grab at Uber ang tunay na bilang ng kanilang units.

    Iginiit naman ni Leyte Rep. Vicente Veloso, na nilalabag ng Grab at Uber ang batas sa tuwing babyahe ang kanilang units ng walang prangkisa.

    Nabatid na mas madami na ang bilang ng Grab at Uber kaysa sa 55,000 mga pampasaherong jeep at 48,000 mga taxi.

    Panget sabihin pero blame Abaya for the plate mess (meh ND pa sa COA diba, standardization ekek eh yung procurement process was flawed from the very beginning - hanggang ngayon yung binayaran ko na plaka worth 450.00 wala pa din, yung sticker ty nalang)

    IIRC, yung awarding ng DOTr for the new plate contract is due this August.

    ===

    Dapat ata NBP nalang nagawa ng plaka natin kung talaga hindi na profit-making venture ito. For the longest time, plate making was cornered by a company with very strong ties with an influential Church group.

    How are they going to compensate the partners?Tsk..Tsk..

    On a side note why taxi hates them..It's not really how much uber/grab makes more money..Pati ba naman sleeping quarters ng taxi inaagawan na ng mgandang kotse. a lot of taxi drivers are complaining yun Clean Fuel gasoline station meron dun air-conditioning sleeping quarters for taxi drivers. Its FREE,just have to surrender your driver's license and sleep till you want. It's owned by Suntay I think and it was meant for mga pagod na taxi drivers. Dati puro taxi nandun,ngayun puro na grab and uber inuunahan pa nila mga taxi drivers matulog..So the taxi driver have no choice but to sleep inside their taxi at the gasoline station. Sabi ni manong "ang Ganda ng kotse mo dito ka pa sa mga taxi quarters natutulog.." hahaha..

    MPIC improves offer for MRT-3 rehab



    By Iris Gonzales (The Philippine Star) | Updated August 17, 2017 - 12:00am

    MANILA, Philippines - Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC) has submitted to the Duterte administration a much improved unsolicited proposal to rehabilitate and improve Metro Rail Transit 3 (MRT-3) which includes a two-year moratorium on fare increases.

    “It’s been submitted. It’s a good proposal but it’s up to the government,” said MPIC chairman Manuel Pangilinan.

    MPIC president and CEO Jose Ma. Lim said the revised proposal is way better than the previous one.

    “There will be no increase for at least two years and the investments we committed more than doubled (to P12 billion),” Lim said.

    MRT-3 is a 17-kilometer public transport system that serves 13 stations from North Avenue in Quezon City to Taft Avenue in Pasay City.

    As early as 2011, MPIC submitted a proposal to rehabilitate MRT-3 but the government did not approve it because the offer included raising fares for the train system.

    For the revised MRT-3 proposal, Pangilinan said MPIC is teaming up with Ayala Corp. and Macquarie Infrastructure Holdings (Philippines) PTE Ltd.

    “There’s a broad agreement with them in respect to light rail projects. It’s extended to Ayala and Macquarie so the shareholding is 55 percent for us, 35 percent for (Ayala) and 10 percent for Macquarie,” Pangilinan said.

    MPIC, together with Ayala and Macquarie, is part of the Light Rail Manila Corp. or the consortium which bagged the contract for the Light Rail Transit Line 1 Cavite extension, operation and maintenance project.

    For several years now, MRT-3 has been hounded by frequent service interruptions and maintenance shutdowns.

    Pangilinan said the revised proposal is more advantageous to the government.

    “I think it’s a much better proposal. It means much more money for the government. It’s also good for them to pass the hot potato to us because we will get blamed (for the service interruptions),” he said.

    The DOTC awarded the contract to Metro Rail Transit Corp. (MRTC) to build, lease and transfer the Metro Rail Transit System, under the build-operate-transfer laws.

    The scheme required the DOTC to hold the franchise and run the system particularly the operation and the collection of fares.

    MRTC infused $190 million into the project.

    DPWH seeks redesign of C-3 proposal


    By Louella Desiderio (The Philippine Star) | Updated August 17, 2017 - 12:00am

    MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) may ask AC Infrastructure Holdings Corp. and SM Investments Corp. (SMIC) to redesign the proposed P25 billion C-3 elevated expressway should it determine that the project is in conflict with existing projects.

    “There might be some conflicts in alignment,” DPWH Secretary Mark Villar told reporters, when asked about the proposed expressway.

    He said the DPWH is currently reviewing the proposal of AC Infrastructure and SMIC to build, as well as operate and maintain the 8.6-kilometer C-3 elevated expressway, and looking at whether the proposed project would have an impact on existing projects.

    The alignment for the proposed toll road or C-3 elevated expressway which would complete C-3 (Circumferential Road 3), will start from C-3 Sta.Mesa area, traverse a portion of the Pasig River up to Circuit Makati area, run parallel to South Avenue and then follow Sen. Gil J. Puyat Ave., all the way to the Mall of Asia complex.

    The project’s proposed interchanges will be located in Sta.Mesa, the Circuit Makati, Ayala-Gil Puyat, Roxas Boulevard, and the SM Mall of Asia Complex.

    Villar said the C-3 project of the DPWH might be affected by the proposal.

    “We have our own C-3 project going to Makati…So, we’ll see. It’s early stage,” Villar said.

    For the review, Villar said the consortium would need to submit a full blown feasibility study for the proposal. “It (proposal) will go through us and then, we will be the one to suggest what needs to be changed... It will go through a process,” he said.

    The proposed C-3 elevated expressway is expected to help decongest EDSA and improve access to Manila Bay development areas, Makati central business district, as well as the cities of Mandaluyong, San Juan and Manila.

    Earlier, AC Infrastructure president and chief executive officer Jose Rene Almendras said the group is hoping to get the final contract award for the project in the second quarter of next year.

    kaya nagkanda leche leche ang mga kalsada natin e. kanya kanyang gawa ng kalsada etong mga hinayupak na eto.

    dapat may isang gumagawa ng masterplan, and everyone else just bids to support and create it.
    actually i am not for bidding e. i am for the government itself to build these.

    Project of the century: Metro Manila subway OK seen in September



    By Czeriza Valencia (The Philippine Star) | Updated August 18, 2017 - 12:00am

    MANILA, Philippines - The Japan-funded Mega Manila Subway Project, which will link major business districts and government offices in Metro Manila, is expected to be approved by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) in September.

    Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia said the feasibility study for the project has already been completed, but the project scope and financing requirements are still being deliberated upon by the Investment Coordination Committee (ICC), both at the technical and Cabinet levels.

    Pernia said the construction of the subway is among the priority infrastructure projects of the government.

    “The subway is going to be the project of the century for the Philippines and Metro Manila,” he said yesterday. “In the next NEDA Board meeting it will be taken up.”

    The first phase of the project alignment comprises 13 stations from Quezon City to Taguig and is expected to serve 350,000 passengers daily.

    The Department of Transportation has said the extension of the subway project to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport is being considered because of expected growth in passenger volume.

    It will cost some $5 billion to build the 25-kilometer underground mass transport system, funding will come from official development assistance (ODA) from the Japanese government through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).


    Pernia said the ODA loan would carry a less than one percent interest with a term of 20 years. A grace period of 15 years would also be provided before payment of the loan.

    The NEDA Board is targeting to approve the project in time for the scheduled signing of the loan agreement in November when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe attends the ASEAN Summit in the Philippines.
