LRT-2 East extension project 92% complete

The overall progress rate of the Light Rail Transit Line 2 (LRT-2) East Extension Project is now at 92 percent, with the two new stations being built in Marikina and Antipolo expected to be fully operational by next year

DOTr said that the east extension project headed by Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) Administrator Rey Berroya and Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade, is currently 92.14 percent complete as of September 2020.

The Department said it targets the two new stations – Emerald in Marikina City and Masinag at the Masinag Junction in Antipolo City – to be fully operational upon its launching on April 2021.

The East Extension Project intends to add four kilometers to the 13.8-kilometer LRT-2 train line which currently runs from Recto Ave. in Manila to Santolan Station in Marikina, connecting to Antipolo City.

Upon completion of this 3.8-kilometer railway extension project, the Department said that travel time from Recto to Masinag is expected to significantly drop to about 40 minutes from the usual three hours travel through bus or jeepney.


Get a glimpse of how the construction works for the project is being done to expedite its completion and realization, by watching this construction site tour, led by the popular motoring journalist, James Deakin.

As he tours the construction site, let us also explore and learn more about the latest and leading edge techniques being utilized for the project, such as the ‘Full Span Girder Launching'—which works quicker than the traditional pre-casting methods—among others. 

As of 31 August 2020, the overall progress rate of the LRT-1 Cavite Extension stands at 48.43% .

The project is targeted to be partially operable by 4th quarter of 2021.

Once completed, the extension project will expand the rail line's daily ridership to 800,000 from the current 458,000, and is expected to trim down travel time between Cavite to Baclaran from 1 hour and 10 minutes to just 25 minutes.

Finally, after nearly two decades of delay, Caviteños will soon experience a faster, more convenient and comfortable travel!
