Construction of LTR1 extension starts May

The Department of Transportation said the construction of the Light Rail Transit Line 1 Cavite extension project will start next month. 

“We’ll have a ceremony on May 6 to signal the start of actual works of LRT Line 1 Cavite Extension Project,” said the DOTr. 

Light Rail Manila Corp. in 2018 signed an engineering, procurement and construction contract with Bouygues Travaux Publics for the LRT 1 Cavite extension project. 

Metro Pacific Investments Corp., through Metro Pacific Light Rail Corp., owns 55 percent of LRMC, which earlier won the bidding for the P64.9-billion LRT1 Cavite Extension Project. 

AC Infrastructure Holdings Corp. holds a 35-percent stake in LRMC, while Macquarie Infrastructure Holdings (Philippines) Inc. holds the balance.

LRMC under the concession will assume the operations and maintenance of the current 20-kilometer LRT1, and construct the 11.7-kilometer extension of the rail line southward from the Baclaran station all the way to Bacoor, Cavite.
