Tokyo Metro Co. Ltd., an operator of a rapid transit system in Tokyo, Japan is supporting the construction of subway line in the Philippines. “The subway has many passengers, so that would mean fewer cars driving passengers. With the subway, I expect no more traffic,” said Tokyo Metro manager for demand generation and marketing department Atsushi Kamimura, as quoted by Philstar.com.
The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) is now conducting a feasibility study for Metro Manila Subway Project which is expected to be completed before the year ends.
JICA is a Japan government agency chartered to help in economic and social growth in developing countries, and the promotion of international cooperation.
The Metro Manila Subway Project is part of JICA’s proposals as medium-term solutions to decongest roads in the National Capital Region. It aims to link Bonifacio Global City, Makati Central Business District and the Mall of Asia in Pasay to provide a higher-capacity mass transit system for the public.
The said project is included in big-ticket projects in the Duterte administration’s envisioned “golden age of infrastructure.”
