Japanese Investors To Build Davao LRT
So, Our mayor Rodrigo Duterte is keen on constructing a light rail transit in Davao City. I like the sound of that. If that is so, then a light rail transit in Davao will be the first ever in the Philippines outside the capital city Metro Manila. The proposed light rail transit will take a route servicing commuters from Toril, Calinan and Lasang. That is basically the entire stretch of Davao City.
It’s about time that Davao will have its own light rail transit. Davao is a huge huge city (one of the largest in the world) its territorial boundaries stretching hundreds of kilometers (forgive me for not giving the exact detail: i’ll do a research on that soon). People within these areas do need an efficient mode of transportation to travel. With this project, it will reduce travel time, its convenient, it will decrease road density, it lessens pollution, increase productivity and some other things that I can think of with its advantages. Its a win win situation and also its a matter of city pride for the Davao residents.
Good luck to Davao City, our mayor Davao City and to the Japanese conglomerate Marubeni with its build operate transfer scheme so that this Davao LRT will be a reality.
