CLARK, Pampanga – Department of Transportation Secretary Arthur M. Tugade has announced on Saturday that the LRT-2 East Extension Project (Santolan-Antipolo) is already 96.29% complete.
“Malapit nang matapos at malapit na itong buksan sa publiko. At inaasahan itong magbibigay ng malaking ginhawa sa mga commuter at magdudulot din ito ng kaluwagan sa trapiko.”
“Magiging 40 minutes na lang ang byahe mula Recto papuntang Antipolo mula sa dating tatlong oras na biyahe,” Tugade said.
Last January, Tugade conducted an inspection of the project together with officials from the Japanese Embassy and D.M Consunji Inc. (DMCI) for its scheduled opening on April 26, 2021.
The LRT-2 East Extension Project will connect Metro Manila to Rizal Province by connecting the Santolan Station to the Antipolo Station.
Ang LRT-2 East Extension project is included in the “BUILD, BUILD, BUILD” infrastructure program of the Duterte Administration. (AI/MTVN)
