What was planned and what really happened? The Metro Manila Railway System

Posted: June 7, 2012 in Opinion, Public Transportation, Railways

The Central Station in Arroceros will not be named the Central Station with no reason at all. The MMETROPLAN Report concludes that the ideal railway alignment should be like this, everything will converge at Central Manila. Oh well, the plan was not observed and had undergone revisions like the EDSA MRT and splitting of the Commonwealth Espana Railway into MRT-7 and 9. Cities aren’t that static, everything is subject to change every now and then.

But even at the current set up, dreaming of an integrated Mass Transport will always be a foolish man’s dream.
