Common station construction to kick off September
The Department of Transportation expects to finally start work on the long-delayed common station project that will link LRT Line 1, MRT 3 and the planned MRT 7 by September this year.
Targeted for completion in 2020, the P2.8 billion project will be built on a property between SM City North Edsa and Trinoma which will run up to Bulacan.
The project started in 2009 but was put on hold due to legal issues.
After months of talks, the private sector stakeholders led by SM Group, Ayala Corp., Metro Pacific Investments Corp. and San Miguel Corp. agreed on where to build the common station.
The common station, with a size of 13,700 square meters, can accommodate passenger flow and convenience and overall larger volume.
