DOTr : Metro Manila Subway is flood-proof!


The crab mentality in Filipinos will always surface in any novel projects of any government for the country.

During the virtual unveiling of a tunnel boring machine (TBM) for the subway, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) made it clear that the Metro Manila Subway is designed to endure against horrendous Manila flooding and assured that the project’s contractor has the experience in dealing with such an issue.

DOTr notes that the Japanese contractors of the project, JIM Technology Corporation (JIMT), has the experience in constructing subways in areas prone to flooding.

“The technology of our Japanese construction partners is the assurance; their experience is the assurance. The perennial flooding has been considered very strongly in formulating the details of the first Manila subway station,” Tugade said.

Tugade further notes that the Japanese firm has experienced far worse conditions compared to the Philippines as the tunnels were burrowed below sea level.

“The subways in Japan are never flooded and they are using that technology. And that is the same technology we are using,” Tugade said.

The 34-kilometer Metro Manila Subway Project will have a total of 17 stations, stretching from Valenzuela to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 and FTI.
