Pres. Duterte's Mindanao Railway Project to Start Construction in January 2019


One of the country's biggest project and considered as President Rody Duterte's most ambitious infrastructure project, the Mindanao Railway Project will start its official construction this coming January 2019.


The Department of Transportation (DOTr) confirmed that the Mindanao Railway Project is set to start its construction, particularly the First Phase of the ambitious Mindanao Railway Project (MRP) this coming January.

MRP Deputy Manager Patmei Bello-Ruivivar revealed the start of construction during Tuesday's regular session of the Davao City Council, where she asked for the loca legislators' support of the project.



The MRP Deputy Manager said that the first phase of the ambitious project covers 102 kilometers with eight stations starting from Tagum City, Panabo, Carmen, Mudiang in Davao City, Magtuod, Toril, Sta. Cruz and Digos City. It is expected to be finished within three years–before the term of President Rodrigo Duterte ends.

Ruivivar was also quoted as saying "By the end of the year, we will start the bidding for the construction of the project. Since this will be financed by China Official Development Assistance, the Chinese Government will give a short list from those who will bid for the project and the Philippines will choose among the shortlisted contractors,” Ruivivar said.

In an interview with the local reporters in Davao City, Ruivivar said that the project was already discussed with local officials of the cities and municipalities where its first phase will start. She also revealed that each city and municipality already created a technical working group, which will work hand in hand with the national project team.
