“As one of our early Christmas gifts to the riding public, especially to our commuters in the province of Cavite, we report the latest construction progress report of LRT-1 Cavite Extension Project,” DOTr said.

It noted that as of November 30, the “long-awaited and highly-anticipated rail extension of LRT-1” is in 50.54% overall progress rate.

“This project is the 11.7 km extension of the existing LRT Line 1, which will run from Baclaran to Niog in Bacoor, Cavite. Upon completion, it is foreseen to cut travel time from Manila to Cavite from 1 hour and 10 minutes to only 25 minutes,” DOTr said.
