The map showing the path of Mindanao railway (Tagum to Digos project) was just leaked online sending riot to Manila businessmen to speculate and buy lands along the path of the railway’s route.
An online site leaked the map of the project where its phase 1 (Tagum-Digos) first pushed by Speaker Bebot Alvarez is seen by Manila businessmen as immediately profitable being sure to be realized by President Duterte within his term.
But according to sources the Manila big businessmen like the Sys, Ayalas and others are most interested to buy lands fronting or near the stopovers of the train.
There is reportedly now intense lobbying from businessmen to get copies of the detailed engineering plan of the project, which is being tightly kept under wraps by foreign engineers and designers. (mindanaosunchronicle.com/Al Rosero)
