Philippines' First Barge Terminal Starts Construction

Wazzup Pilipinas!

To further efforts in decongesting Metro Manila traffic and effectively maximizing the use of the country’s nautical highways, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the International Container Services, Inc. (ICTSI) held the groundbreaking ceremony of the Philippine’s first container Roll-on Roll-off (RORO) Barge Terminal earlier today, 21 April 2017. 

The Cavite Gateway Terminal (CGT), a six-hectare property currently being developed in Brgy. Capipisa in Tanza, Cavite, will enable containerized cargo transport through barges moving between ICTSI’s International Container Terminal in Manila and Cavite. Phase 1, which will cost USD 30 million (PhP 1.5 billion), features an annual capacity of 115,000 TEUs – equivalent to 140,000 fewer truck trips on city roads each year. This project will be constructed at no cost to government, and is expected to be operational by Q1 2018.

Leading the ceremony are (from left to right): ICTSI Vice President and Head of Asia Pacific and MICT Christian R. Gonzalez, Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur P. Tugade, ICTSI Chairman and President Enrique K. Razon Jr., former Cavite Governor Juanito “Jonvic” C. Remulla Jr., and Tanza Mayor Yuri A. Pacumio.
