The rolling stock of Line 2 of the Manila Light Rail measures 3.2 m wide and 92.6 m long, and have a (perhaps maximum?) capacity of 1,628 passengers (232 seated and 1,396 standing). By comparison, a second-generation train of Line 1 measures 2.59 m wide and 105.7 m long, and have a capacity of 1,350 passengers. Line 1 trains are narrower and longer while Line 2 trains are wider and shorter.

About the Line 2 trains, I would think it is kinda uncanny how they would manage to fit 400 passengers to a single coach compared to a coach of some other cities' metros' rolling stock (usually 200 to 300 passengers or less).

Manila LRT1 extension PPP project approved
Wednesday, June 25, 2014



THE National Economic and Development Authority of the Philippines has approved the sole private-public partnership offer to build, operate and maintain an extension to LRT1 in Manila.

Light Rail Manila, a joint venture of Ayala and Metro Pacific Investments, offered a premium of Pesos 9.35bn ($US 213.5m) on top of the project cost of Pesos 64.9bn.

The scheme will extend the existing 20.7km Roosevelt – Baclaran line south by 11.7km to Cavite, with 10.5km elevated and the remaining 1.2km at grade.

Meanwhile Japan has promised to conduct a feasibility study of the Mega Manila Subway project, following an official visit by President Benigno Aquino III to Japan. The scheme is part of a Pesos 2.3 trillion 2016-2030 transport master plan for the Philippines drawn up by Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica).

The metro line would run from San Jose Del Monte in Bulacan south via Quezon Circle, Cutiao, Ortigas and Ninoy Aquino International Airport to Dasmarinas in Cavite.

This is in addition to a planned Pesos 135bn east-west metro line running from Taguig to Pasay and Makati. The 20km line would have 11 stations and a 16km underground section, with the remaining 4km running on an elevated alignment

Here's the route they've got planned:



So this looks like they're combining the MRT 7 and south LRT 1 extension into a single route while also doubling the capacity of MRT 3?

The purple line looks more like a heavy rail metro than light rail.

There are heavy rail metro systems with headways ranging from 90 seconds to 10 minutes. A 5 minute frequency doesn't make it similar to light rail. Its rolling stock is more similar to light rail vehicles than to typical metro systems. But it is a full heavy rail metro.

The "incident report", however, will only certify the cause of the delay and will not be worded as an excuse letter for tardiness, Mr Sagcal said.

"It's up to the requesting individual how to use it", he said, when asked if the document could be used as an excuse letter.

A multibillion-dollar infrastructure overhaul plan by President Benigno Aquino has moved painfully slowly and only one year remains before he steps down next June. When it opened in the late 1990s, the MRT had 20 running trains, each with three cabs, but years of neglect, aggravated by wrangling between the government and its private partner, have reduced this number to seven.

A prototype of the 48 new trains that the government plans to install by next year will be tested in November and rust-eaten rails will be replaced within the year, he said.

I wonder why such a busy and huge megapolis as Manila doesn't have a decent metro system.

+1. I don't understand that.
Manila should have 10 metro lines or more.

Corruption, lack of money and/or political will - you name it. It's the same as in so many big cities around the world.
