Tunnel boring machines na gagamitin sa Metro Manila subway pinasilip ng DOTr sa publiko




Ipinasilip ngayon araw 4 Setyembre ng Department of Transportation ang aktwal na tunnel boring machines na gagamitin sa paggawa ng kauna-unahang subway sa Metro Manila.

Ipinalabas ito kaninang alas 2:00 sa official facebook page ng DOTr.

Ayon sa  DOTr  maseserbisyuhan nito sa initial operation ang 370,000 na biyahero kada araw.

Inaasahan ang full operation ng P393-B Metro Manila subway sa 2025.

Kapag naging fully operational na ang subway, ang dating mahigit na dalawang oras na travel time mula Quezon City hanggang NAIA ay magiging 40-minuto na lamang.


WATCH: The first-ever underground railway system in the Philippines, the Metro Manila Subway Project (MMSP), marks another breakthrough development as one of the ACTUAL Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) has undergone Factory Acceptance Test today, 04 September 2020. Unveiled on the virtual tour earlier was one (1) of the six (6) TBMs manufactured by JIM Technology Corporation in its factory in Tsurumi Prefecture, Japan. This is expected to arrive in the Philippines by January 2021 while the succeeding will be in February 2021. This will be used to fast-track the construction of the partial operability section of the MMSP. The TBMs are integral in building the subway as these are used to excavate tunnels using a circular cross-section mechanism. TBM can also excavate through a variety of ground conditions, from hard rock to sand. In February of this year, the major parts of a TBM were first revealed including the shield jack, cutter reduction gear motor, main bearings and articulation jack. With its groundbreaking ceremony held in February 2019, the Metro Manila Subway will commence partial operations in 2022 and will be fully operational by 2026. It is expected to serve 370,000 passengers daily in its first year of full operations, with a design capacity that can accommodate up to 1.5 million passengers per day. This will interconnect with LRT-2 at Anonas Station; with the North-South Commuter Railway at Senate, FTI, and Bicutan Stations; and with LRT-1 and MRT-7 at the Common Station, to ensure interconnectivity and convenience for passengers. This will also feature technological advancements and disaster-resilient strategies with the guidance of Japan’s expertise in railways, that aims to strengthen the Subway’s structural integrity amid regular occurrence of typhoons and earthquakes. The Department of Transportation will continue to work triple time to expand the country's railway network to deliver safe, reliable, efficient and extensive mass transportation to give a more comfortable life for the Filipino people. #DOTrPH 🇵🇭 #RailwaysSectorWorks #BUILDBUILDBUILD #PartnersForChange #ComfortableLifeForAll
