This is the seventh LRV delivery this year by Citadel, the local ship agent of global RoRo shipping company Eukor. The latter holds the exclusive right to bring in the brand new LRVs for the LRT 1 Cavite Extension Project.
To date, MHCPSI has unloaded 48 LRVs from Spain and Mexico to be used for the existing system and Cavite Extension project of the Light Rail Transit Line 1. Another 72 LRVs are scheduled for delivery until June 2022.
'We are honoured to be given the opportunity to share our cargo handling expertise and assist the Department of Transportation, Light Rail Transit Authority, and the Light Rail Manila Corporation in the implementation of this much-needed project that aims to provide the public with a reliable, safe, and efficient mass transport system,' said Phillip Marsham, MHCPSI executive director.
