The Common Station Project, which will seamlessly interconnect the rail lines of LRT-1, MRT-3, MRT-7, and the Metro Manila Subway, is now at 48.48% completion rate, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said.
“Targeted to be completed on December 2021, the Common Station features a 13,700-square meter CONCOURSE AREA which will seamlessly interconnect the rail lines of LRT-1, MRT-3, MRT-7, and the much-awaited Metro Manila Subway,” DOTr said.
“This is a long overdue transport infrastructure project that would have considerably eased mobility of commuters in Metro Manila, particularly along the main transit routes, from Baclaran to Monumento to the entire length of EDSA,” the DOTr added.
DOTr noted that with the established partnership and cooperation initiated by DOTr Secretary Art Tugade, the construction of the Area B (Atrium) of the Common Station was able to push through, and now is 100% complete.
“The remainder of the project is now in full, accelerated construction pace and work is done 24/7. Once operational, the Common Station is expected to serve approximately 478,000 passengers daily,” it added.
