Speculations on airport relocation plan list Naic as option

Nobyembre 10, 2012 (Linggo). Kamakailan ay naging matunog ang bayan ng Naic bilang isa sa mga posible umanong pagtayuan ng magiging bagong pandaigdigang paliparan.

Ayon sa Rappler.com, nitong Agosto 30 ay inihayag umano ng pangulo ng Philippine Airlines (PAL) na si Ramon Ang, ang pagtatayo nito ng isang bagong airport. Ang paliparan ay nakatakda umanong isagawa sa loob ng tatlong taon, bagaman hindi pa tinutukoy ang mismong pagtatayuan (Philippines2050.com).

Nagmistulang palaisipan naman sa ilang netizen ang lokasyon ng magiging bagong paliparan. Sa ilang thread sa Skyscrapercity.com, naging masigla ang mga talakayan at palitan ng kuru-kuro hinggil sa lugar na pagtatayuan ng bagong airport.

Habang sinasabing nabili na ng San Miguel Corporation ang PAL noong Abril, lumutang ang Cavite bilang isa sa mga lalawigang maaari umanong pagtayuan ng airport. Sa Skyscrapercity.com, ayon kay jpdm, “Im telling you, with all those mega investments of San Miguel in Cavite which includes, 5 manufacturing plants (bottling plant-Yamamura, aluminium can plant-Yamamura Fuso Mold, dairy plant- Magnolia, meat processing (Monterrey and Purefoods), Steniel (packaging) and real estate ventures—I mean, there are rumors flying that Ramon Sy and San Miguel might go with a Cavite airport.”

Naging usapin din sa mga thread ang anyo ng lupa sa Cavite na mahalaga umano para sa isang airport. Ayon kay anonymous_filipino, “For Cavite, the only way to build an airport that is as ambitious as SMC-PAL’s proposed airport is to reclaim land near the area of Kawit and Cavite City. There are no available flat lands in the interior of Cavite (Trece Martires City area) since the interior of Cavite is already very built up. The only available flat land I can think of is at the area of Naic and Ternate.” Kapuna-puna naman sa talakayan ang mas pag panig ng mga netizen sa Naic kumpara sa Ternate. Ayon kay Mercato, “Naic… is closer and has more flat terrain.”

Kapansin-pansin din sa Skyscrapercity.com ang paghalaw ni theabe sa isang dokumentong mula sa Philippine Stock Exhange, Inc. (PSE). Sa ulat ni Mauro B. Badiola, Vice President Finance & Corporate Information Office ng PSE, may petsang Agosto 15, 2012, inihayag na “Ternate-Nasugbu tunnel development and the permanent PEZA law prescription of the Ternate Municipality (where Puerto Azul is 60% of the landmass) have led to actual interest in properties at the back door of Puerto Azul. Our field research—from our own staff’s families selling & from the talk of realty agents—in the adjacent close-knit towns of Naic, Maragondon, & Indang and Ternate itself has confirmed 100% the consolidation by purchase, of parcels of land aggregating to 4,000 hectares to date by the buying office of one of the country’s premier conglomerates. The conglomerate’s objective is to establish a 10,000 hectare corridor from the coastline of Ternate towards the Indang hinterlands, in order to create a duty free seaport, residential & industrial district, & airport in ipso facto benefits as Subic or Clark. We think this is in line with many urban planners calls—such as from our architects, Palafox Associates—that MetroManila (MM), like many large megacities, requires three airports & that the businessmen—like in the 50s told to move North to QC but developed Southwards—will again not listen to government but develop further South & Southwest of MM.”

Samantala, kasabay ng espekulasyon hinggil sa pagtatayo ng paliparan sa Naic ay ang mga puna at pagsusuri sa kung bakit imposibleng maging lokasyon ang naturang bayan. Ayon pa kay anonymous_filipino, “Pinipilit na sa San Miguel ang 10,000 hectare na lupa na yun sa Cavite. Magkaibang business entity ang Boulevard Holdings at San Miguel, at ang former ang magdedevelop ng 10,000 hectare property na yun sa Cavite, without the participation of San Miguel.”

Ayon pa kay NTprime, “we still now have the problem of distance and road infrastructure to tackle. As I mentioned, there are no major road projects in the pipeline for the next 1-2 years there. But the biggest thing going against Cavite is time to complete the projects, not just the airport but especially the road infrastructure. San Miguel didn’t mention anything about building toll roads there, the existing highway is only 2 lanes (with shoulders though), and there are choke points along the EPZA/Bacao Road, Antero Soriano Highway, and the Centennial Road.”

Dagdag ni mwg12a, “I do not think Naic would be it either. Ang statement is that there would be an elevated highway that will be connected to EDSA.”

Maliban sa Cavite, pinakamatunog ang lalawigan ng Bulacan bilang maaari umanong pagtayuan ng paliparan. Sa katunayan, nangunguna ang Bulacan, Bulacan sa poll sa Skyscrapercity.com para sa tanong na, “Where would you like to build and develop Manila’s new airport?” Sa oras na ito, 49.02% ang panig sa naturang bayan sa Bulacan, sinundan ito ng mismong NAIA na kinakailangan lamang umanong isaayos pa (15.69%), at pare-parehong may 7.84% ang San Jose del Monte City sa Bulacan, Naic, Ternate at mismong Clark Airport na kailangan lamang umanong isaayos pa.

Maging sa mga balitaan, sinasabing maaaring sa Bulacan itayo ang paliparan. Ayon sa ulat ng ManilaStandardToday.com, “The new airport… could be located in the southern towns of Bulacan province, or in the proximity of northern Metro Manila.” Ayon naman sa InterAksyon.com, “Philippine Airlines’ planned international airport would likely be located in Bulacan, according to a CIMB report.”

Samantala, inaasahang ganap na tutukuyin ang mismong pagtatayuan ng paliparan sa Enero o Pebrero ng 2013.

  1. If Naic and adjoining towns hope to see this project come to fruition, then there should be a coaltion of cities that work together to create a strong infastructure that would bring industrialized and tourist commerce to the area especially with its close proximinity to Manila… the tourist spot of Tagayatay and possible resergence of Puerto Azul in Ternate. The infastruture should include rail, road, refuse etc.. creating an eco friendly zone. Long Beach, CA in the U.S. had been able to tap into its ecomonic source as a port after the departure of the US. Navy. They have their own water resource and able create some of their own energy through their refuse recycle program.

  3. what is the latest development on the San Miguel Airport, will it be in Bulacan or in Naic Cavite? We prefer naic Cavite for the reason that tourists will be able to see Tagaytay in the first hours they step out of the airplanes.
