President Rodrigo Duterte and Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on November 13 during their bilateral meeting in Manila witnessed the signing and exchanging of notes for the Metro Manila Subway Project (MMSP).
Japan will be providing loan and expertise for the said subway line. Signing of loan agreement is expected in January 2018.
The subway will run from Mindanao Avenue in Quezon City to Food Terminal Inc. in Taguig City and may be extended to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport with extension to Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
The subway system is envisioned to be an underground mass transportation system connecting major business districts and government centers which is expected to serve 370,000 passengers daily in its opening year.
The following phases of the subway project would involve extending lines up to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan north of Metro Manila and up to Dasmarinas, Cavite south of Metro Manila.
Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade has negotiated with the Japanese government to pursue the completion of a segment of the MMSP by the second quarter of 2022 instead of the original completion date for the entire system in 2025.
Among the exchanges of notes witnessed by the leaders include the Metro Manila Subway project, Arterial Road Bypass Project Phase 3, and notes on the economic and social development program.
