MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Transportation (DOTr) on Wednesday, March 23, announced that the LRT-MRT Common Station that would link the Light Rail Transit (LRT) with the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) is around 50 percent complete.
In its latest Facebook post, the DOTr said the overall progress rate of the common station project now stands at 48.48 percent.
The project, which started some seven years ago, is targeted to be completed in December 2021.
The common station features a 13,700-square meter “concourse area,” which will “seamlessly interconnect” the rail lines of LRT-1, MRT-3, MRT-7, and the much-awaited Metro Manila Subway.
The project is expected to ease mobility of commuters in Metro Manila, particularly along the main transit routes, from Baclaran to Monumento to the entire length of EDSA.
