The remanding parcel of land in the 103-hectare state-owned property is allocated for the Transportation Department's intermodal transport system linking various types of transit options to facilitate commuting from various points.

“In this particular case, portions of the property have been set aside for the Metro Manila Integrated Transport System which aims to ease traffic congestion by connecting provincial commuters to other modes of urban transportation. Meanwhile, a connector road has been proposed by the DPWH (Department of Public Works and Highways), which will link the C-5 Road to the South Luzon Expressway through the FTI property,” Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda said in a statement.

The planned Integrated Transport System project of the Department of Transportation and Communications will be adjacent to the property and will be connected to the current Philippine National Railways station in the area, ALI said, adding that plans were likewise being drawn for a possible Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) that would run from Pasay City to Makati City, Bonifacio Global City, FTI and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

The transportation links will complement Ayala Land's plans for the mixed-used development.

In a statement, Ayala Land said the FTI property will have new infrastructure envisioned to spur economic activity in the area and will feature convenience-centric retail, dining and entertainment offerings set within generous spaces and surrounded by pockets of greens and will promote social interaction and an active community life. - Rappler.com
