LRT 6 to Cavite: Construction set before end of Aquino term


AFTER a long delay, Transportation Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya said construction of the proposed Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line 6 that will pass through towns of Cavite before the end of the six-year term of President Benigno Aquino 3rd in June next year.

The P65.09-billion Public-Private Partnership (PPP) project that aims to connect the Cavite towns of Niyog, Bacoor and Dasmariñas City to the LRT Line 1 that runs along Taft and Rizal avenues in Manila was targeted to be completed in 2015.

Late December, the Department fo Transportaion and Communications (DOTC) finally rolled out the bidding for the LRT 6’s  30-year concession agreement that gives the private partner the responsibility to finance, design, construct, operate and maintain and procure rolling stock for the LRT system.

  1. Overnight deals are illegal!!! The winning bidder will have problems in the next administration! My recommendation is for the bidders to wait until the next administration.
