Philippines, Manila - ph/11


During a ceremony in Manila on 05/05/2022 the Department of Transportation (DOTr) officially awarded to the TTM Joint Venture, composed of Tokyu Construction Co Ltd (Japan), Tobishima Corporation (Japan) and Megawide Construction Corporation (Philippine-based) the PHP17.75 bn (EUR 321,23 million/USD340 million) Contract Package 104 (CP104) as part of the Metro Manila Subway Project (MMSP) Phase1. The contract involves the construction of two underground stations and tunnels at Ortigas North and South. Construction will start work in July with the completion date set for January 2028.

The network will span 17 stations over 27.5 km, connecting the northern part of the metropolitan area to Ninoy Aquino International Airport. This subway will reduce travel time between Quezon City and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) from 70 minutes to only 35 minutes, and revitalize the Philippine economy by easing traffic congestion in Metro Manila.

Tokyu's contract will apply to the roughly 3.4 km remaining for the first phase of the project. The joint venture will handle engineering work, tunnel construction and equipment installation, including that of an air conditioning and ventilation system.

To date, the Japanese Government, through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), has provided assistance amounting to YEN104 bn (EUR 768,35 million or USD 812.55 million) in the 1st part and YEN253bn (EUR1.87 bn or USD1.98 bn) in the 2nd part.
