Philippines and Japan set to start designing Mega Manila Subway this November

Good news is on the way! The Philippines and Japan will start designing the subway this coming November and it will be going the "project of the century."


"The subway I think is going to be the project of the century for the Philippines. Designing of that will be in November when Prime Minister Abe will come for the ASEAN Summit," Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto M. Pernia said.

"The NEDA Board is likely to happen in September, early September," Pernia added.

The Mega Manila Subway project is worth  P227-billion.

Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to arrive in the Philippines this November for the  Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) ministers meeting.

Pernia also said that they are now preparing for the documents to be signed.

"'Yan ay sigurado, kasi talagang pine-prepare natin para ma-sign. Whatever the Prime Minister of Japan and the President of the Philippines sign, it will be it. Those are the main signatures," he said.

The subway was one of the rail projects Filipino and Japanese officials agreed to tackle during a meeting in Tokyo last March.

There was a draft feasibility study for the project, NEDA Deputy Director General Rolando G. Tungpalan said in June.

The P227-billion Mega Manila Subway was introduced as the Mass Transit System Loop or the Light Rail Transit Line 5 under the administration of former President Benigno S.C Aquino III.

It will be a 25-kilometer underground mass rail system connecting major business districts and government centers. It is expected to serve 370,000 passengers per day in its opening year.

The subway train line is expected to be completed in 2024, said Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade.
