A southbound lane of Cavitex near Parañaque Bridge will be closed for three months beginning next week to give way to the construction activities of the Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT-1) Cavite Extension Project.

In a statement, operator Light Rail Transit Corp. (LRMC) said the southbound lane near the Parañaque Bridge will be closed from 15 September until 15 December for pipe relocation works by Maynilad for the 11.7-kilometer LRT-1 Cavite Extension project.

“We are aware that this will bring temporary inconvenience. But once the project is completed, travel between Baclaran and Bacoor will be faster, easier and more convenient for our commuters,” LRMC Cavite Extension Management Team (CEMT) Project Execution manager Reynaldo Pangilinan said.

According to LRMC, at least 40 percent of the project aspects within LRMC’s scope has been reached since it started civil works in September 2019.

Construction work in other areas and stations is also underway, it added.

“Despite the limitations brought by the quarantine period and the necessary adjustments, we have been able to make progress on this project,” Pangilinan said.

LRMC previously said it is expecting the first phase of the P64.9 billion LRT-1 Cavite extension to be operational by the last quarter of 2021.

The partial operability of sections comprises phase one of the project. This includes five stations, namely Redemptorist, MIA, Asia World, Ninoy Aquino and Dr. Santos.

The last three stations — Las Piñas, Zapote, and Niog — are targeted to be completed and operational by 2022.

Once LRT-1’s Cavite extension becomes operational, the Department of Transportation said daily ridership along the entire line is expected to increase from 500,000 to 800,000, while travel time from Baclaran to Bacoor will be reduced to 25 minutes from up to two hours.

LRMC, a joint venture of Ayala Corp., Metro Pacific Light Rail Corp. and Macquarie Infrastructure Holdings (Philippines) Pte. Ltd., is the operato
