Philippines Makeover

From a distance, we ask...'tang'na, why not? Learn about our nation, then dream up a better Philippines with Google Earth, SketchUp, and all things possible in the virtual. Render a bridge. Share lessons. Take/make a tour. Bridge investors with Pinoy producers and manufacturers. Questions, visions, delusions welcome.

    Uy! Google Earth Philippines: Google Earth ekek for Pinoys!

      :: Airport Loop

      Here's an idea sent in by Urbano de la Cruz. He writes:

      A 5.25km express light rail or BRT linking the MRT (via the Taft avenue station), LRT1 (taft avenue and baclaran) to the Manila Domestic, NAIA terminal I and II.
      Most of it can be built on current LRT right of way and airport property. A later spur can be added connecting the airport to the PNR/Southrail via Villamor.
      Urbano, of course, knows a lot more about this stuff than I do. Check out his blog on urban development here. He also has some incisive points about my earlier post here.

      I think it should be built NOW before they even think of opening NAIA 3. Think of how a huge hassle it can become to do transfers.

      I'm right there with you. I've seen maps of the LRT 1 extension route and it is totally baffling that the won't connect to the airport!!
