Roxas squarely responsible for MRT-3 mess

Image

For 10 years after MRT3 started operations, the Japanese firm Sumitomo Corp. maintained the system under a contract with Metro Rail Transit Corp. (MRTC), the MRT-3 builder. The train was so efficient that Sumitomo would boast about MRT-3 in its sales pitch for bidding for similar projects around the world.

Sumitomo’s contract expired July 2010, and was renewed on a six-month basis only, but for four times by the MRTC, subject to DOTC’s approval. MRTC chairman Robert Sobrepeña told this writer that Sumitomo was in a bind – it required a longer time frame, so it would estimate how much of maintenance inventory it needed to keep, which actually cost half of its more than $1 million monthly contract. Sobrepeña and Sumitomo continually wrote letters to the DOTC to request a bidding for a longer-term contract. “We got absolutely no reply,” he said.

In the letter of DOTC Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya published in response to columnist Jarius Bondoc’s well-researched exposes, the secretary wrote:

“On 4 October 2012, the MRTC wrote the DOTC, informing the latter that it would no longer procure a maintenance service contractor once Sumitomo’s contract would expire (sic) on 19 October 2012.

Parang NAIA 1 design contract din yan. Nagcomission ng design ang gobyerno sa grupo nila cobonpue at layug. Nang matapos yung design nailathala sa mga newspaper at pinalabas sa news. Nagustuhan ng taumbayan. Nang malaman ni Mar, iniitsapwera niya sila cobonpue dahil aesthetics lang daw kulang sa technical expertise. Dapat kay Locsin daw ipadesign kasi yun daw original designer. Ang bobo e gobyerno na nga nagkumisyon ng design nila cobonpue e. Pinahiya niya pati presidente sa kalokohan niya. Sa bandang huli joint design na lang daw o collaboration. Binatikos na kasi ng husto e. Dito unang lumabas yung pagdududa ko na trapo rin tong si Mar. Hindi tuwid ang daan ni Mar.

Abaya dispels 'unsafe' claim on new MRT coaches

By Mikas Matsuzawa, CNN Philippines

Updated 00:00 AM PHT Sun, January 24, 2016

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Transportation Secretary Joseph Abaya on Friday (January 22) said the statement of MRT Holdings, Inc. (MRTH) tagging the new Metro Rail Transit 3 (MRT-3) coaches as unsafe is “misleading the public.”

MRTH is the majority shareholder of Metro Rail Transit Corporation (MRTC), which is the private owner of the MRT-3 system.

Two reasons were mentioned by MRTH Chairman Robert Sobrepeña on why the new coaches made by Chinese firm Dalian Locomotive and Rolling Stock Co., Ltd. is a danger to its riders.

First, he said it’s the first time for Dalian to build such a light rail vehicle, making it a “guinea pig.”

Next, he argued that the prototype and the new coaches have not completed the 5,000 kilometer test run prior to its shipment to the Philippines.

“I wouldn't ride it,” he said.
Test runs will be done in PH

However, Abaya clarified that test runs would be completed in the Philippines instead.

He said this during CNN Philippines’ second election roundtable which discussed the state of Metro Manila’s mass transit system.

According to the Transportation secretary, Dalian engineers and the consultant of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) advised that it’s better to run the new coaches under the country’s conditions.

Passengers won’t be allowed to ride the new coaches “unless we’ve fully tested the trains,” Abaya added.

He also said the DOTC would not not procure trains that are unsafe. Dalian is a “world-renowned [and] world-class manufacturer. They produced trains for MTR Hong Kong and for SMRT Singapore,” he added.

But during the round table discussion, transport consultant Rene Santiago said he wouldn’t claim right away that the Chinese-made coaches are safe or dangerous. Still, he “would be very cautious” as the trains did not undergo the required testing.

According to him, another complication was that Dalian trains were not the same configuration as the ones currently used by the MRT-3.

“It’s not just adding a rail car on top of it. [The DOTC] still have to completely repair the tracks and the signaling,” Santiago said.


“I have yet to see whether it will really complement or match the existing system,” he added.
‘Misleading the public’


Abaya said Sobrepeña’s statements have all been “coming from the left field” lately. “Clearly he is misleading the public,” he said.

‘New MRT-3 coaches not working’
By Delon Porcalla (The Philippine Star) | Updated February 13, 2017 - 12:00am


MANILA, Philippines – An administration lawmaker is seeking an inquiry into the reported “rush” by the Department of Transportation to pay P2.7 billion to a Chinese firm that won the bidding to supply 48 coaches for Metro Rail Transit 3 (MRT-3) that were not operational yet.

Rep. Jericho Jonas Nograles of party-list Puwersa ng Bayaning Atleta claimed none of the new coaches were working and that 12 of them bore “cracks.” He did not say where and how he obtained the information or from whom.

In 2013, the then Department of Transportation and Communications bought 48 coaches from Chinese firm Dalian Locomotive and Rolling Stock Corp. for P3.8 billion. All the coaches were expected to have been delivered by January this year.

Nograles said he could not understand why MRT-3 officer-in-charge general manager Deo Leo Manalo is “overenthusiastic” to pay the Chinese company 70 percent (or P2.7 billion) of the total contract price when nothing is working yet.

He said Congress should look into allegations that the MRT-3 management has approved the payment.

According to the lawmaker, the coaches are unusable due to the absence of components and the lack of critical tests and documentation.
Headlines ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1

“This is very unfortunate because the MRT was once seen as a symbol of the past administration’s incompetence. And therefore people have high expectations that things will get better under the present government,” Nograles said.

He said it was “absolutely reckless and irresponsible” to pay for the coaches without ensuring that they would be working.
‘Rolling coffins’

At the same time, Nograles urged Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade to crack the whip on the MRT-3 management following reports that malpractices committed in the past are being perpetuated despite the change in administration.

“Did our MRT officials get the President (Duterte’s) memo that his government will not tolerate incompetence and corruption?” he said.

“No wonder our commuters are still suffering the same agony as they did in the previous administration,” he said, noting the “cracks” were found in at least 12 of the bogey frames of the 19 coaches, which could “cause a disastrous accident if left unrepaired.”

Nograles said the MRT-3’s maintenance provider, Busan Universal Rail Inc., is also putting the lives of MRT commuters at risk primarily because it continues to use motors that have already reached their maximum safety wear limit.

The trains’ wheels are also now prone to derailment because they have not been repaired or replaced, which should have been mandatory after every year of service, according to him.

“The MRT management and its maintenance service provider Busan are endangering the safety of our commuters because of their negligence,” he said.

Poe seeks probe of MRT woes, unusable trains
ABS-CBN News

Posted at May 03 2017 10:31 AM


MANILA - Senator Grace Poe filed Wednesday a resolution seeking a legislative inquiry into the issues surrounding the maintenance of the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) and the purchase of P3.8 billion worth of trains which reportedly turned out to be unusable.

In her Senate Resolution 335, Poe said the MRT has experienced numerous technical problems since the previous administration entered an allegedly anomalous maintenance contract with the Busan Universal Rail Inc. in 2016.

Transportation Undersecretary for Rails Cesar Chavez, the senator said, has cited a Commission on Audit (COA) report to highlight Busan's "low par" and "substandard" performance.

"The COA report stated that from January to December 2016, there were 2,619 train removals, i.e. pullouts from daily runs due to glitches; 63 service interruptions or shutdowns due to problems with the coaches, tracks, power supply, and signaling; and 586 incidents of passenger unloading, at times, thrice a day," Poe's resolution read.

Poe also noted a media report that Busan won the 3-year maintenance contract under unusual circumstances, including the alleged lack of public bidding and the conduct of closed door meetings prior to the deal's approval.

In addition to the purportedly anomalous contract, Poe said the MRT is hounded by another problem: the 48 new trains bought from China's Dalian Locomotive would remain unusable until 2018 because it has no signalling system.

Dalian's contract, she noted, states that the firm should have installed the signaling system prior to the delivery of the trains to the Philippines.

Poe said the government should examine the contracts entered into by former Transportation Secretary Jun Abaya with Dalian and Busan because "these involve billions of pesos and directly affect and could possibly endanger the safety and convenience of thousands of commuters."

She added that Congress must ensure that corrupt officials would not go unpunished for approving disadvantageous contracts.


Poe directed the Senate committee on public services, which she chairs, to lead the inquiry into the issue.

mga unverified claims ni Sobrepeña ang source ng article na sinulat ng legendary gloria-ass-licker na si RIGOBERTO D. TIGLAO. so how can you expect a BALANCED article? very basic yan. si Sobrepeña ang head ng Metro Rail Transit Corporation, so it follows na i-defend nya ang ka sosyo nya sa negosyo, which is Sumitomo, kasi sya ang nakipag deal dyan eh.

ang tanong, me proof ba sina Sobrepena at Sumitomo to deny the evidence provided by BURI about "glitches" during their time (from year 2000)?
nag deny lang sila na walang ganyan nangyari tulad ng kini claim ng BURI. pwede rin kasi itago ang record ng glitches ng Sumitomo at MRT Corp., headed by Sobrepena.

ito ang article, para dun sa mga me intellect and emotional capacity to understand the FULL STORY:

MRT 3 flawed from the start–Busan
In a letter sent to the Commission on Audit (COA), Busan claimed that it was not to blame for the inconveniences experienced by the 500,000 daily riders of the railway line. Instead, its flawed design and poor quality are the culprits for the glitches.

“The inherent design and quality concerns on the MRT 3 system have substantially been causing technical glitches and stoppages from the very start of its operations almost 20 years ago,” Busan said in its letter to the COA.In a letter sent to the Commission on Audit (COA), Busan claimed that it was not to blame for the inconveniences experienced by the 500,000 daily riders of the railway line.

“The inherent design and quality concerns on the MRT 3 system have substantially been causing technical glitches and stoppages from the very start of its operations almost 20 years ago,” Busan said in its letter to the COA.

In its letter, Busan Rail also cited data from the MRT 3’s first year of service in 2000, when a total of 1,492 glitches where recorded. It likewise cited records from 2008, when the glitches reached 1,927, and from 2009, when problems increased to 2,199.


MRT Holdings Inc., through MRT Corp., owns the train system. It is chaired by businessman Robert John L. Sobrepeña.

“Their claims are just so ridiculous,” Sobrepeña told the BusinessMirror via phone. “When we were handling the MRT, it was nothing like what it is today.” He explained that the lateral movement that Busan claims was “cured during the time of Sumitomo Corp”.

Link: https://businessmirror.com.ph/mrt-3-flawed-from-the-start-busan/


come to think of it: kung ang MRT business was very good, why did the Ayalas group divested their business interests to the Sobrepeña group?

It is because during the days of Erap and Gloria, the government subsidized the fares of the MRT/LRT commuters. contributing to yearly deficits in budget. hindi naman nila binabayaran on-time at regular basis ang MRT corporation. you just follow the thought kung saan papunta ang isang business na di masyadong profitable to succeed.

me kasalanan ang MRT Corp., me kasalanan din ang gobyerno.
