BCDA eyes Makati-Taguig-Pasay monorail

[ ] May 18, 2011
The Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA) is planning to build an elevated monorail in the Makati-Taguig-Pasay alignment which will be linked to the existing rail systems.
The medium-term project is meant to address the growing demand for efficient mass transport systems over the next five years.
BCDA chairman Felicito C. Payumo said the proposed monorail system will link up with the Metro Rail Transit servicing the EDSA route, the Light Rail Transit traversing the entire length of Taft Avenue from Baclaran, ParaƱaque City to Monumento in Caloocan City, and the Philippine National Railways line that cuts across Metro Manila towards Southern Luzon.
The interconnection is envisioned to form a loop around the projected service areas covered by the three rail transit systems.
Payumo told members of the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines that the project will be implemented through the public-private partnership initiative of the Aquino administration.
He said engineers of the project opted for an elevated monorail because of the narrow streets of Makati and Taguig.
The BCDA chairman said completion of the elevated monorail would possibly be followed by the relocation of the country’s international gateway to the Clark Special Economic Zone in Pampanga.
In the same business forum, Payumo outlined key BCDA strategic directions for 2011 to 2016.
