LRT 1 extension project resumes
The Light Rail Transit 1 extension to Cavite province has restarted “limited works” after the government allowed railway projects to resume amid strict quarantine measures.
Light Rail Manila Corp. (LRMC), the Metro Pacific Investments Corp. and Ayala Corp.-led operator of LRT 1, said they had started “select repair and infrastructure work.”
The project, which will extend the LRT 1 in Metro Manila by 11.7 kilometers to Bacoor, Cavite, was slated for completion next year.
It was stalled along with other infrastructure projects last March when the government imposed a lockdown in Luzon.
According to LRMC, the scheduled bridge and pipe inspection needed for construction along the Cavite Expressway will take place from May 7 to May 22.
This will require the temporary road closure of the innermost northbound lane along Cavitex-Parañaque bridge.
