A great help to Eastern Rizal commuters if this pushes through; kalbaryo tuwing luluwas ka sa Maynila.

Under feasibility study pa din ba 'to? I hope once the FS results are out, they can immediately start the bidding process - and award the contract agad! The eastern corridor badly needs this rail line.

This should be extended to Gilmore Station. Another one should be planned along Shaw Blvd. going to Manila.

This study was done 2-3 years ago. Nothing new.

Oh man, if ever this comes to light, it will be so much easier to get to other parts of Metro Manila without having to deal with the traffic at Ortigas Ave highway.

I noticed that this line is 19 km with only 6 stops. That means avg of 3.1 km per stop. Can't they increase the number of stops reducing the distance between stops? (Methink that an avg of 1 km to 250 m closer to population centres will be a good distance.) OR even making provisions to increase number of stations as time goes? People in between stops, how are they going to get to the stations? Jeepney, trici or hike?

Personally, I like the option 1 with potential extension to Makati Ave area because I know mas marami parin from the east ang nagwowork sa Makati like my officemates before.

This could discourage those from the east going to Makati to use their cars para mabawasan naman sasakyan sa Ortigas

More options, the better

I seriously can't wait till' the day I can commute to Metro Manila via LRT from Taytay and vice versa. Normally, you need to commute to Santolan Station if LRT-1 or Ortigas Station if MRT-3. Of course, getting there would mean commuting by bus or jeepney which equals traffic. PLEASE make this happen, PH Gov't. So much potential here.

While I'm happy that they're planning for urban rails to reach outside the "inner city", I believe they should add more stations, shorter the distance between stations, or make provisions for more stations. This will allow more passengers to get off and on closer to their destination. Urban rails spur development on the routes they run so they should think about that.

This reminds me of Kiev. Where I was staying was a nice area, but the subway stations were 4 km+ apart. My place happened to be in the middle, 2 km to the main downtown station, and 2 km to the nearest "large" market. In between they have mini buses, that run like jeepneys. I ended up walking everywhere. BUT they have nice big sidewalks. Walking in Kiev in the winter is like walking in Manila in perpetual summer and NO sidewalks.

Mandaluyong City was very unhappy here. They initiated the study from JICA for a hybrid APM with route option 1 or 2 to Ortigas CBD, it was to serve the dense residential area of Mandaluyong with the most people to benefit as against the car centric greenhills area. You will notice that there are more proposed stations inside mandaluyong than the ortigas cbd to taytay as these study was added later on.

The APM became LRT, line extended up to Taytay when the project was finally submitted. Mandaluyong was angry to realized that it's initial study of the line option 1 or 2 is gone when the approval was finally out. Ortigas EDSA to Taytay only. Thanks to DOTC interference. DOTC said it is impractical and unfeasible.

This is where I would disagree, in fact prior to Mandaluyong APM, JICA through its MMUTIS back then has already provided a similar alignment for a line to Taytay going through Ortigas Center (which was envisioned to go further to Binangonan).

Shockingly, the line that was to go back then was no other than the current MRT-2 which was made heavy rail as it was planned to become the bigger east C-loop from Antipolo proper (goes even further than Cogeo) complementing the smaller west counter C-loop the MRT-3 should have provided from Obando to Kawit via EDSA.

It was envisioned back then that the MRT-2 west extension would go southwards instead to Roxas Boulevard instead of Northwards to the Pier area.

This explains as to why MRT-2 was upgraded into a initial 4-car heavy rail system upgradable to a 6-8 car configuration we currently know of today.

Wow! They actually planned MRT3 to be extended to Kawit and Obando!

My only issue with the original plan is no Ortigas Avenue Ext. line. I do prefer the current LRT4 proposal, but using Option 2, or even Option 1.

Based on the map, i think Ortigas area was to be served by then-Northrail from Malolos to Dasmarińas. Plus Ortigas Extension back then was enivisioned to be served by the MCX line (Metro Commuter) which would re-utilize and revive some of the old PNR east line ROW we currently now know as "Ortigas Avenue Extension" together with the old Guadalupe and other branch lines as well as the Pasig River Ferry System forming the East-West route complementing the North-South one which is what remains of today.

Wow. Interesting. I always wonder why they will extend Line 2 to Pier when they can go south to Roxas blvd and eventually MOA complex and serve more people. This will help out also on the congestion of Line1 and Line3.

AFAIK the old PNR ROW is not Ortigas Extension itself, but is parallel to it, at what is now Tramo/Parola Street.
