@anakngpasig, thanks for the updated pics. Good to see it coming along. I do hope that they build larger stations (even larger than LRT 2) with more access points given the long queues and small platforms on the current line.

Serrano added that the MIAA has been studying if the monorail system would be internal, meaning, the service would be located inside airport premises, with trains available only to air travelers and airport personnel.
Gettting from one terminal to another is a huge pain so a monorail connection is long overdue esp. since T3 opened.

But what happened to the original proposal to link LRT1 with the NAIA??? There needs to be a link to the airport built one day.

THE BIGGEST MRT PROJECT IN THE PHILIPPINES, MRT 7 HAS BEEN APPROVED. COST IS $1.2B FOR THE RAILWAY AND $2.2B FOR REAL ESTATE COMPONENT

NEDA body approves MRT-7
By Iris C. Gonzales Updated May 22, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - The Investment Coordination Committee (ICC) of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) has approved the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) project, NEDA assistant director general Ruben Reynoso told reporters yesterday.

The project has now been endorsed to the NEDA board for approval, he added.

Part of what was approved by the NEDA-ICC’s Cabinet committee was the 10-percent performance bond to be posted by Universal LRT Corp., the proponent of the $1.2-billion project.

“The government wanted a surety bond,” Reynoso noted.

He said the matter is now with the NEDA board, which is expected to meet next week.

Reynoso said that after obtaining the approval of the NEDA board, the project’s proponent is expected to meet with the lenders on how to finance the infrastructure system.

Earlier, the NEDA laid down conditions for the implementation of the project, including the posting of an estimated $120-million performance bond, or 10 percent on the rail and road system investment; and a $220-million three-year rolling performance bond on the scheduled real estate and commercial development component of the project.

Reynoso said yesterday that the bonds would be forfeited in favor of the government in case the proponent fails to fulfill its obligations.

According to the NEDA, the real-estate component of the project is estimated to cost $2.2 billion. Based on ULC’s business plan, the firm will develop 7,300 residential units, 900 office units, and a 90,000-square-meter gross mall area in a 195-hectare estate in Bulacan.

Tax revenues from the operations will be used to fund railway operations.

The MRT 7 project is envisioned to run from San Jose del Monte in Bulacan to the North Avenue, SM City station of MRT 3, linking both lines to each other and to Light Rail Transit Line 1.

According to initial project plans, the capacity of the system will be provided by three-car trains operating at 3.57-minute intervals, with about 28,000 passengers per hour per direction.

So... Very good news that the original plan will finally push through With SM's funding, this SM-Trinoma station better be perfectly designed

(Problem: How can it be a "-Trinoma" station when the existing MRT3 North Avenue station is a lot lot closer to it? Weird.)

GMA approves P777-m rail terminal at SM North Edsa
Manila Standard
By Joyce Pangco Pañares

President Arroyo has approved the P777-million Metro Manila Integrated Rail Terminal where three major transport routes will converge in front of SM North Edsa.

Light Rail Transit Authority Administrator Melquiades Robles said the approval was made during yesterday’s National Economic and Development Authority Board-Cabinet meeting at the Palace.

He said the project would link Metro Rail Transit line 3, which runs from Taft Avenue, Pasay City to North Edsa, Quezon City; LRT 1, which stretches from Monumento, Caloocan City to Baclaran; and MRT 7, which will traverse Commonwealth Avenue to San Jose City in Bulacan.

“The three train lines will converge in one station and there will be seamless transfer from one line to another. This will be operational by June 2010,” he said.

The common station, which was supposed to be constructed in front of the Trinoma mall in Quezon City for P1.5 billion, will now be located across SM North Edsa.

“The net effective cost is about P777 million. The Development Bank of the Philippines has committed to make funds available for this project,” Robles said.

He said the physical infrastructure to close the loop between LRT 1 and MRT 3 will be put in place by December 2009. By February next year, two additional stations within the loop, namely Balintawak and Roosevelt, will be operational.

The MRT-LRT loop is estimated to cost P6 billion, Robles said.

UPDATE Yeah, you're right. This line is due for so long....hopefully, this time, it would materialize.
As for the southern ext, is the project proceeding according to the timeline?? If so the winning bidder should have been selected at the end of June.

Why is this considered a light rail line? It looks like a heavy rail metro to me.
