    Wow! Those trains look nice. I hope they can maintain it the same way the LRTA maintained the MRT/LRT/LRT2 trains. It could also use a car-carrying deck like the one on the Great Britain-France "Chunnel" train.

    Part 3: The Universal LRT proposed system will definitely replaced alot of buses and jeepneys in Metro. Major proponent is SM group.


    http://www.ulc.com.ph/project.html

    The MRT 7 proposal is a combined 45-km of road and rail transportation project from Bocaue exit North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) to MRT3 at North Avenue-EDSA.

    The 22-km, 6-lane asphalt road will connect the NLEX to the major transportation hub
    development in Tala, San Jose del Monte.

    The 23-km mostly elevated MRT starts from Tala and ends at
    the integrated MRT 3/MRT7 station at EDSA.


    The construction period is expected to last 3-1/2 years. The Proponent will operate and manage
    the system on behalf of the government over 25 years while gradually transferring ownership
    of the system to government in proportion to payments of annual capacity fees.

    The Project is estimated to cost US$ 1.235 Billion, including interest during construction.
    Project cost will be financed by a combination of debt (75%) and equity (25%).
    The train that will be used might look like this:


    Construction will commence in January 2010

    The route of the MRT 7:

    There are plans to put freight trains thats why they are going to proceed with the so-called Southrail project. As of today, PNR right of way in Batangas are being cleared of squatters perhaps to service the Batangas port.

    Hopefully, this might be the freight train that they will use for the PNR Southrail freight service.



    Again, it will help decongest the roads of container trucks, vans buses and even jeeps.

    on topic: para di maglaho ang Jeepney, gawa nalang sila ng mga aircon na 5 seater lang in short owner type lang pero design in which ang seating eh parang sedan... then gawing metered taxi.

    anyway of the trams will be revived, major road work must be done causing great traffic problems among motorists

    IMHO kailangan more than 5-seater parin sila. Kasi nga malaki volume ng mga commuter, kung puro 5-seater, edi maraming ganyan ang kakailanganin. Tas as usual papabayaan lang ng LTO na magkaron ng excess sa mga registered na ganyan. Feeling ko better kung at least 10 passengers yung kaya ng new-gen jeeps. :D
