Php21 Billion subway project from Manila to Bulacan




A Php21 billion (US$440.2 million) project has been awarded to Hyundai Rotem Co. to construct a subway linking a train station in Manila all the way up to Bulacan.

Hyundai Rotem is A train-making company affiliated with Hyundai Motors. The subway pROject is in partnership with local company ULC.


Hyundai will also be providing the trains (pictured above) that will run on the subway. Hundreds of thousands of workers travel every day from the north to Manila to report to work so this should reduce the travel time especially if it will be connected to the MRT lines. The project is set for deployment in 2019.

In related news, Kompac Oil of Dubai is planning on a Php716 billion railway system from Manila to Pangasinan (see story here).

    I’m very interested in seeing where the planned stations will be. Also, how will they work with the floods that happen often in Manila?

    let’s not mock this project before even considering the plans and execution. This would be really convenient for me as a daily commuter from Bulacan to Marilao. I hope this would be a success.

    Who is the Filipino company that’s supposed to be tie-up of Hyundai Rotem in the project? We all know about the 60-40 deal between a foreign company and a local one. But this article only mentioned theHyundai Rotem.

    Yugatech should have done his homework, there are more details to this one and I think with this article. Yugatech looked one of those parody sites. Quite disappointing…
