Firm mulls new monorail system in PH

Infracorp Development Inc. under the Andrew Tan’s Alliance Global Group Inc. (AGI) has announced its plans to construct a new monorail system in Metro Manila which will connect two places in Quezon City.

The new monorail system will connect Eastwood City in Libis and Santolan station of the MRT along EDSA. The monorail system would benefit a lot of people, particularly workers in Eastwood City, as they no longer need to face the heavy traffic during rush hour especially for those travelling to EDSA to reach their homes, reported Entrepreneur Philippines.

Eastwood City, a business hub, is home to thousands of workers in various sectors. During rush hour, Boni Serrano Avenue, which connects Eastwood City and EDSA, is congested with jeepneys and private vehicles driving in the area.

Moreover, along the avenue are Camp Crame and Camp Aguinaldo, the headquarters of the Philippine National Police and the Armed Forces of the Philippines respectively.

Earlier, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) has given proponent Infracorp Development Inc., the infrastructure arm of Andrew Tan-led Alliance Global, “original proponent status” for the P3-billion two-kilometer Skytrain monorail project that will connect two of Metro Manila’s busiest business districts.

“We laud the government’s quick action to the proposal. This is another clear indication of the government’s serious commitment and focus on infrastructure developments,” Infracorp President Kevin Tan said, as reported by The Philippine Star

“There is really an urgent need to connect the two major business districts of Makati and Taguig, and this project will make that into a reality,” Tan added.

The Fort Bonifacio-Guadalupe skytrain is seen to ease commuters’ travel time to five minutes from uptown Fort Bonifacio to the MRT station in Guadalupe, Makati and vice versa.

The project will utilize automated cable-propelled monorail technology, at no cost to the government.

Around 60,000 to 100,000 passengers are expected to benefit from the train project.

Construction for the monorail is expected to begin later this year and to be completed by 2021, Proponent Infracorp Development Inc. announced.
