DOTr greenlights Makati-BGC Skytrain
The government has—ahem!—put the locomotion in motion, earning the Department of Transportation (DOTr) an original proponent status (OPS) to the two-kilometer Skytrain monorail project of Infracorp Development Inc. The project, if successful, will provide a more convenient mode of transport for some Filipino workers and bridge the two main business districts of the metro, Makati City, and Bonifacio Global City.
“We laud the government’s quick action to the proposal. This is another clear indication of the government’s serious commitment and focus on infrastructure developments,” said Kevin Tan, Infracorp president.
Below is an artist’s rendition of the proposed Skytrain monorail that will link the Metro Rail Transit’s Guadalupe station to Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.
The proposal was first submitted October last year, and now with DOTr’s go signal, the proposal will undergo a review by the National Economic and Development Authority’s Investment Coordination Committee.
We’ll sound off here as more details emerge.
