Design for the PHP227 billion Mega Manila Subway will be created by Philippines and Japan starting in November, Socioeconomic Planning Secretary and National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Director General Ernesto M. Pernia said in a press conference today.
“The subway I think is going to be the project of the century for the Philippines. Designing of that will be in November when Prime Minister Abe will come for the ASEAN Summit,” Pernia said, as quoted by GMA News Online.
He added that during the next NEDA Board meeting in September, the said project will already be tackled.
Mega Manila Subway project phase 1 or the Manila Metro Line 9 is among its 75 priority projects.
Mega Manila Subway project phase 1 or the Manila Metro Line 9 will cover Mindanao Avenue, North Avenue, Quezon Avenue, East Avenue, Anonas, Katipunan, Ortigas North, Ortigas South, Kalayaan, Bonifacio Global City, Cayetano Boulevard, Food Terminal Inc. (FTI) and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
The entire Mega Manila Subway System is envisioned to start from San Jose del Monte, Bulacan to Dasmarinas City, Cavite.
