Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado, Senator Joel Villanueva, Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade, Japanese Ambassador Koji Haneda and Senator JV Ejercito lead the groundbreaking ceremonies of the North-South Commuter Railway project Friday at Brgy. Tabing Ilog, Marilao, Bulacan.  The Jica-funded commuter train project is a 37-km long railway line that will connect Malolos in Bulacan to Tutuban Station in Manila to address the serious traffic congestion in Metro Manila.  The train will traverse seven river railway bridges and one highway crossing and will have 10 rail stations in between Manila and Bulacan.
