The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) expects to bid out the Light Rail Transit Line 1 Extension Dasmariñas Project next year, within the term of President Benigno Aquino 3rd.
“The feasibility study is ongoing and the terms will hopefully be finished soon,” DOTC Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya said.
The LRT Line 1 Extension to Dasmariñas Project will extend further the LRT Line 1 covering approximately 15 kilometers of service line from the LRT Line 1 Cavite Extension Project terminal in Bacoor. It will enhance the competitiveness of both Metro Manila and the Cavite province, spurring economic development along the extension corridor.
The project will improve passenger mobility and reduce the volume of vehicular traffic in the Cavite area by providing a higher capacity mass transit system. It also aims to spur economic development along the extension corridor.
