Bicol train service to reopen by June 25

MANILA, Philippines—Philippine National Railways General manager Ower Andal told President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo the resumption of the Bicol trips would “close the loop” linking the North and South Rail projects. He said that the PNR would resume train operations for Lucena City to the Bicol region by June 25.

The 50-meter San Cristobal Bridge is a vital part of the Northrail-Southrail Linkage Phase II that runs from Calamba to Lucena. Its completion facilitates the reopening of the Bicol train service, then called “Bicol Express,” from Manila to Ligao town in Albay province, according to the PNR.

The railway bridge was destroyed by powerful storms in 2006.

PNR managers also said that new commuter-type coaches would arrive from Japan next month to complement the regular train service from Tutuban in Divisoria, Manila, to Alabang, Muntinlupa City, and 40 to 50 new coaches for long trips to Bicol are expected in November.

After the PNR coach stopped over at its Bicutan station in Taguig City, Ms Arroyo hopped out, and boarded a bus for a “windshield inspection” of the completed elevated toll road between Bicutan and Sucat, a project of the South Metro Manila Skyway Project.

She was joined by businessman Manny V. Pangilinan, officials of Skyway, and developer Citra Metro Manila Tollways Corp. and DM Consunji Inc.
