Marubeni and DM Consunji secure Manila LRT Line contract

A consortium of Marubeni and DM Consunji has secured a contract for the Manila LRT Line 2 East Extension Project in the Philippines.

The $62m contract encompasses an electrical and mechanical (E&M) package for a 4km railway system extension with two additional stations eastwards.

As consortium leader, Marubeni will be responsible for overall administration and the procurement of E&M railway systems.

DM Consunji will be in charge of managing track-work procurement and construction, as well as the installation of E&M systems.

The company will also carry out the construction of a viaduct and two new stations, Emerald and Masinag.

Construction works are expected to be completed soon.

The overall contract is a part of the Capacity Enhancement of Mass Transit Systems in Metro Manila Project. It aims to increase the capabilities of the metro system in a bid to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution across the Metro Manila region.

Completed in 2004, the existing Manila LRT Line 2 features a 13.8km elevated stretch with 11 stations. It connects the east and west regions of Metro Manila.

Marubeni was also associated with the construction of the existing section.

The company has executed several other rail projects in the Philippines, including the modernisation of Commuter Line South Project, the Metro Manila Light Rail Transit Line 1 Capacity Expansion Project Phase 1 and Phase 2 Package B.
