Metro Manila Metro Project Contract Signing – Contract Batches CP102 (Quezon Avenue Station) and CP103 (Anonas and Camp Aguinaldo Stations)
In line with the administration’s program to provide an efficient mass transportation system in the nation, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. attends the contract signing for Package 102 (CP102) – Quezon Avenue Station and Package Contract 103 (CP103) – Anonas and Camp Aguinaldo Stations of the Metro Manila Metro Project (MMSP) during a ceremony at the President’s Hall of Malacañan Palace on November 3, 2022.
Manila Metro will be the first underground rail system in the Philippines which will have a total length of 33 kilometers with 17 stations running from Valenzuela City to FTI-Bicutan in Parañaque City, with a line connecting Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 at Pasay City.
Once fully operational, it can accommodate approximately 519,000 passengers per day and significantly reduce travel time between Quezon City and NAIA from one and a half hours to 35 minutes. Dubbed the “jewel” of the nation’s transit system, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) reports that the MMSP is expected to generate more than 18,000 jobs during its construction and stimulate economic activity in nearby areas in addition to creating business opportunities once completed. Financial support for MMSP comes from the Government of Japan through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
