LRT 1 Cavite seen to start service by ‘21

Light Rail Manila Corp., a consortium led by Ayala Corp. and Metro Pacific Investments Corp., said Monday it set a target to start partial operations of the first section of LRT Line 1 Cavite Extension project by end of 2021.

“The schedule has not changed for now. The partial operability of the Phase 1 is end of 2021,” LRMC president and chief executive Juan Alfonso told reporters. 

Phase 1 covers 7 kilometers of the 11-kilometer LRT-1 Cavite Extension, including the Redemptorist Station, MIA Station, Asiaworld Station, Ninoy Aquino Station and Dr. Santos Station. 

Asiaworld Station will be located parallel to and right beside the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange and will eventually be connected to the Metro Manila Subway, forming the Parañaque Common Station. 

The remaining stations from Las Piñas to Niog are scheduled for completion by 2022.
