MANILA, Philippines — The Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) has expanded and upgraded the busy Edsa-Taft station of the Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT-1) to address crowding and space limitations.

In a statement on Monday, LRMC said it has upgraded and expanded  the Edsa-Taft station, one of the busiest in the LRT-1 line, by opening a third floor access from an adjacent mall and a new connecting bridgeway.

New ticket booths were also built as well as comfort rooms.  The station was likewise spruced up with LED lighting setups, interior paint jobs, floor finishes and a PWD ramp. 


The connecting bridge also comes with a new roofing system, while the southeast portion of the station has a new fire exit and a wider area fo commuters. 


“We want all our commuters to have the best travel experience as they discover the joys and hidden secrets of Manila, and we are continually committed to providing comfort and convenience on the LRT-1,” LRMC President and Chief Executive Officer Juan Alfonso said.

“All our efforts in this endeavor, including the further extension and modernization of the LRT-1 line, are made toward achieving this goal,” he added.

LRMC said the Edsa station expansion coincides with the LRT-1 Cavite extension project, which will  link Pasay City and Metro Manila to parts of Cavite. /gsg
