LOOK: Proposed design of MRT-LRT common station

MANILA, Philippines – Construction of the common station for the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) and Light Rail Transit (LRT) will begin December this year, after the government and the private builders finally signed a memorandum of agreement on Wednesday, January 18.

The MRT-LRT common station is a P2.8-billion, 13,700-square-meter project to be built between SM North EDSA and TriNoma malls in Quezon City. It will connect the LRT1, the MRT3, and also the MRT7, which is targeted for completion in 2020.

The common station will have 3 main areas:

The common station's target completion date is 2019.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) said its benefits include "seamless transfer from one line to another, [a] convenient walk for platform transfers, [a] bigger space, and connection to two major malls" – SM North EDSA and TriNoma.

Take a look at the proposed design of the common station in these images provided by the DOTr. The department said this design will still be "presented to concerned constituents, representatives, and local officials ... to incorporate concerns from various sectors."
