Gov’t pushes P10.1B LRT Line 2 West extension project

The Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) is keen on proceeding with the construction of the P10.12 billion LRT Line 2 West extension project.

“We are pushing for the project, kulang pa funds,. If we complete the funding or even a multi-year contracting authority then we can already start the bidding,” LRTA administrator Hernando Cabrera said.

“We cannot start any bidding without funds or MYCA,” he said.

Cabrera said the agency is waiting for the official ‘no objection’ certification from the Philippine Ports Authority and the Philippine National Railways (PNR) on the proposed alignment of the LRT2 West extension project.

The project seeks to extend the existing LRT Line 2, with a total length of about 3.02 kilometers from the Recto station extending westward to the Pier 4 area including the turn back track.

It will have three stations — Tutuban, Divisoria and Pier 4.
