LRT-1 Cavite Extension Now 60 Percent Complete


Phase 1 of the 11.7 km LRT-1 Cavite Extension project is now 60 percent complete with girder covering the entire stretch of Dr. Santos Station to Pacific Avenue near Asiaworld Station.

Recent construction activities include the launching of pi-girders through above-ground launcher along CAVITEX near Paranaque bridge. The installation of pi-girders will continue along Pacific Avenue which will require closure of both northbound and southbound carriageways from August 16 to 19, 2021 (10PM to 4AM).

Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC), together with Bouygues Travaux Publics as the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contractor, utilizes a special engineering method that allows faster execution and minimal effect on the ground-level traffic. Since the start of civil works in September 2019, construction remains to be in full swing despite the limitations brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. The viaduct of LRT-1 extension is targeted to be completed by the end of December 2021, while the electro-mechanical works are set to begin in January 2022.
