    Is this Mindanao railway going to pay it’s way? Is it going to be profitable? No evidence of a cost benefit study yet.

    A great project to be implemented by the Duterte administration. This will make a closer link between 2 major cities in Mindanao. This island needs to be develop to its full potential. No need to halt this project just to give way to other cities in the Visayas and Luzon who were given priority projects during several past administrations. Cebu can have its own. It’s time for Cagayan de Oro , Davao and the rest of Mindanao to shine. MinadanaONE!
