Construction of Common Station to start by December 2017




The Department of Transportation has announced that the government and private sector are now working together to complete the Common Station structure which is slated to start by December 2017.

The Common Station will interconnect the three rail lines – the MRT 3, LRT 1, and the soon-to-be-constructed MRT 7. The project originally cost Php2.6 billion but since it has doubled in size in the new location (between SM and Trinoma Malls) to cater to more people, the cost has also increased to Php2.8 billion.


 

The project was started in 2009 but was delayed due to location issues. With the construction targeted to start by December 2017, it is expected to be completed by April 2019.

    Iba kasi maglagay ang mga Ayala, lalo na nung nakapuwesto ang dating administrasyon (sarap ng kickback ng Kamaganak & Friends Inc.), kaya di agad ginawa yung common station kasi gusto nila na idamay din ang Trinoma. Kaya mas tatatagal at mas mamahal dahil sa pinipilit nila na bagong lokasyon. Mahigit isang taon ang madadagdag dahil sa kasakiman ng mga yan. Ok lang kung sila ang gagastos, kaso ang taong bayan naman ang maglalabas ng pera.
