I'll just post this right here and leave it at that.



An awesome 16 minutes...I still watch this clip when I feel frustrated by the legacies of Joseph Emilio Aguinaldo Abaya and need to cheer up...

The detailed engineering design will come out 240+ days from the signing of MOA (Jan 2017) this doesnt include the nonworking days (weekends, holidays, work suspensions due to bad weather etc) when it comes out it will be subject to approval by SM.

If approved it will undergo bidding since the Part A is government funded as we know bidding at the fastest can take 6 months it can go for years and years.

And then construction itself which is also not immune to delays.

The safest answer to your question is : Construction will start in 3 to 4 years from now.
What? Please read the latest news.

Ako rin.
Pag nasa LRT1 ako at kailangan ko magpunta sa MRT3 Ortigas,
pumupunta pa ako sa EDSA-Taft,
kahit mas malapit ako sa North Ave.

Kaya dapat talaga may link din sa North
para hindi naiipon sa Taft yung transferring passengers.

Sorry I don't read news I only read their titles and it says groundbreaking not construction much less start of operation.

Post the detailed engineering design here and the winning bid and I'll be your slave for a year.

Sharing time? Here is mine.

7+ years ago, I wanted to go to the Nat'l Museum from my place on Shaw/EDSA. Instead of taking a cab during peak traffic, or going via Makati, then switch at Taft/EDSA, I decided to go northward instead to Trinoma. Rails in front of SM were up already then. I got off at Trinoma, walked to the front of SM, and discovered the next LRT station was at Roosevelt, 2 km (+/-) away! I finally found which bus to take me to Roosevelt to get travel southward into Manila. What an effing pain. And let's not talk about switching at Taft/EDSA that's like xtreme adventure up and down those rinky dinky pink stairs or Cubao L3/L2, that's like 400 m of mall sightseeing.

The original interchange station in front of SM would have sufficed for the traveling public. That end of LRT and MRT is low density so they don't need an over blown common station. It's only an interchange, and the malls could have erected their own fancy walkways, not the gov't. From my calculator in my brain, if one train set full of passengers (1,500 max with standing room) coming from opposite direction, they all get off to switch trains to the other side, they're looking at 3,000 max number of commuters switching at the same time. 3,000 people x 1 sq m pp = 3,000 sq m of available open space (not including toilets, ticket booths etc) in the concourse (one level down from the platforms) plus platform space for 1,500 pax on each side. After all these years and more planning, the DOTr could have just finished this off, and started on Taft/EDSA and Cubao for more interchanges.

It's all water under the bridge. And it looks like there's 2 more years of pain after spade on the ground.Maybe commuters should have their own day of protest for this mega f.... up!

Ako rin, preferred ko sana yung North for transfer to LRT.
Kasi, in case na mahaba ang pila,
pwede magpalipas muna ng oras sa mall
(may mall din sa Taft, pero jologs yun).

Yung LRT U.N. Avenue Station,
dapat lagyan na rin nila ng elevated walkway papuntang Luneta/National Museum Complex.
Kasing iksi lang seguro ng Taft MRT-LRT walkway ang magiging haba nun.
Dami kasing taong-grasa sa ilalim ng hagdan ng station.
Basta, sobrang chaotic ng sidewalk dun.
Elevated walkway lang ang naiisip kong solution.
