Construction of LRT-1 extension going to Cavite to start in May
Construction of the Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT-1) extension from Parañaque City to Cavite will start in May, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said.
The 11.7-kilometer extension will add eight stations to the existing LRT-1 line.
Should the construction go on as scheduled, operations of the LRT-1 extension could start by 2022.
An estimated 800,000 commuters are seen to benefit from the extended railway line.
DOTr said the extension line will cut travel time from Baclaran going to Cavite from the current one hour and 30 minutes to half an hour.
