  • What We Know About the MRT-4 Project so Far
  • The Investment Coordination Committee–Cabinet Committee (ICC-CabCom) of The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Board recommended 12 projects for approval by the NEDA Board last December 20, 2019.

    Three of which are projects implemented by the Department of Transportation—including the MRT-4 Project.

    The MRT-4 Project also called the Line 4 Project is a 15.56km long elevated monorail transit system which will have 11 proposed stations. The project aims to help reduce travel time, improve mobility and, make Metro Manila and the Rizal Province more accessible to each other.

    The proposed route of the MRT-4 will begin at the N. Domingo Station in Quezon City and will end at the Taytay Diversion Road (R-5)-Manila East Road rotunda in Taytay, Rizal.

    It will also run along Ortigas Avenue, Ortigas Avenue Extension, and the Taytay Diversion Road. The route will have a detour at Frontera Drive, Tiendesitas’ Las Fiestas Road before returning to Ortigas Avenue Extension.

    “Considering how densely-populated these areas are, which is made more difficult with the lack of road capacities and ever worsening traffic conditions, MRT-4 will be of great help in moving commuters between eastern Metro Manila and Rizal,” Secretary Tugade said in a statement.

    Funded by the Asian Development Bank, the project is expected to start construction in 2021 and is set to be operational by 2025.

    It is hoped that MRT-4 will be able to reduce travel time and improve mobility

    The MRT-4 will be the sixth metro line for Manila including the three current LRT-1, LRT-2, and MRT-3 metro lines, and the MRT-7 and the Metro Manila Subway Project that are still under construction.

    At present, the MRT-7 has begun its construction while the Metro Manila Subway Project recently had its clearing operations at the Valenzuela Depot where its East Valenzuela Station will rise.
