  • The updated FS of Marubeni was submitted to LRTA in June 2010.
  • Other financing options such as ODA and domestic financing through a syndicated loan from the DBP and LBP are being explored (Line 1 North Extension Project experience will show that cost will be reduced if undertaken through domestic financing).

  • The Minutes of Discussion on the Preparatory Study for the LRT Line 2 Extension Project was already signed by JICA-Tokyo representative, LRTA and DOTC.  It includes the Draft Scope of the Preparatory Study for a full blown Feasibility Study to be conducted by JICA on a grant basis.
