Earth balling and tree cutting just finished from Santolan to Metro Manila border.
I saw the earth balled trees being planted in a vacant lot infront of SM Marikina.

As of Nov 6, ongoing test pits near Robinsons Metro East. I believe this is for the Emerald Station.

As of Nov 10, test pits are no longer in the area. They were given a special permit to cut indigenous trees from Cainta to Masinag segement (a tarp can be seen). Ongoing tree cutting and earth balling from the said segment.

From my observation, most likely by the end of next week, the clearing of center island will be done.

As of Nov 18, a pilling rig has been assembled and 2 slurry towers have been errected. Clearing of center island is ongoing.

For the Divisoria station, i hope they include a provision to eventually connect it seamlessly to PNR. Tutuban should be a good site for another Grand Central Station.

You're on a roll for interconnection. You also want the Pasig Expressway connected to Skyway.

Yup, i think that's what's lacking in Metro Manila. Seamless connection of vital infrastructures i.e. MRT - LRT, SLEX - COASTAL, Airport - MRT etc.

I think the Divisoria station will be beside Tutuban Mall. Isn't that mall already part of Tutuban station?

I was also under the impression that the end part of LRT2's West extension will connect or be very close to the Ferry Terminal.

One down, hundreds more to go! Looks like they can do 1 column for every 2 days. They have been working 24/7.

Ganyan naman ang DMCI. Just like their project in NAIAEx, basta may equipment, for sure tuloy tuloy na trabaho nila.

Well, the longest part of any rail transit project in most countries (including US and Canada) is always the politicking. It can take decades to get a rail project off the ground due to politicking but once the digging starts, it can go very fast. If rail transit projects have an easier time getting off the ground like highways, bridges and even skyscrapers, there would be no more traffic issues in most of the world's largest cities.

I wonder how long it took for the Tibet Railway to be finished since fractious debate was surely very minimal within the Communist Party.

Imagine if this was started 2 years prior, maybe this extension is already been utilized by the commuting public. With this scenario, the speed of the contractor is no question after all.

Thanks but no thanks to our politicians.

Indeed! PNoy and his b*tch, then DOTC Mar Roxas are specifically responsible for the delay of LRT2's extension plans. "Wala daw tao..."

the lrt2 divisoria station would likely be on recto. PNR tutuban station is on the opposite end of the tutuban perimeter. but this walkable in 5 min.

likely they'll just expect you to walk inside the mall to the other end.

That is such a lame excuse. Rail projects spur development.
