LRT extension to Dasmariñas Project rolling out next year

Transportation Secretary Joseph Abaya is confident that if LRT Line 1 Extension to Dasmariñas Project turns out to be feasible, the project will be open for bidding next year.

According to Public-Private Partnership Center, “Cavite is experiencing a rapid growth, and many of its residents travel to Manila for work and education purposes.”

Currently, a feasibility study being prepared. “The ongoing study is looking into possible private sector’s participation in the financing, design, and construction of the 15-kilometer rail line from Bacoor to Dasmariñas, Cavite,” PPP center said.

Recently, the contract has been awarded for the extension of LRT Line 1 from Baclaran to Niog area in Bacoor, Cavite.

The extension of line to Dasmariñas, Cavite “will improve passenger mobility and reduce the volume of vehicular traffic in the Cavite area by providing a higher capacity mass transit system.”
