MRT4 - Manila to Rizal gets initial approval

The detractors will always a have a say in the policies of the current administration, an opposition senator just before the Christmas holidays called out the Duterte’s Build Build Build is a total failure.

Without checking his facts and achievements and ongoing projects of the infrastructure programs of the Duterte administration, senator Franklin Drilon  just blurted those statement without any intention but to besmirch the current President because of the achievements the governments has done as compared to the previous administration.

The infrastructure program of President Duterte is on full swing as evidenced by the initial approval of the mass rail line from Manila to Rizal.

The Metro Rail Transit Line 4 (MRT-4) project has moved closer to implementation after the Investment Coordination Committee-Cabinet Committee (ICC-CabCom) approved the said project. Only the NEDA Board approval is lacking for the project to push through.

As per NEDA, the Line 4 Project or MRT 4 Project is a 15.56-kilometer elevated monorail transit system beginning at the proposed N. Domingo Station near Granada Street corner N. Domingo in Quezon City, and ending at the proposed Taytay Diversion Road (R-5) – Manila East Road rotunda in Taytay, Rizal.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) said the proposed project aims to address the worsening traffic condition and inadequate road capacities in the densely-populated areas of eastern Metro Manila to include parts of Quezon City, San Juan City, Mandaluyong City, Pasig City and the Ortigas Center.

“The line will also link eastern Metro Manila with the neighboring municipalities of Cainta and Taytay in Rizal,” it added

The project is eyed to operate 2025 with 11 stations. The train system is expected to have an initial capacity of 235,000 passengers per day. It is expected to eventually serve 600,000 daily.
DOTr said the P59.3-billion MRT-4 project is calendared for construction from 2021-2025 to be funded by an official development assistance (ODA) from the Asian Development Bank (ADB), with the Department of Transportation (DOTr) as proponent.
