Suggested two additional rail lines in Metro Manila

On this post, I am going to share with you two proposed additional railway lines in Metro Manila. I came up with this idea given my experiences in traversing the said routes.

MRT 11: On this proposed line, it will traverse the C-3 road, and then to Sta. Mesa, and to Osmeña Highway all the way to Alabang. However it would involve the dismantlement of the existing Skyway.

Stations:

-North Bay
-Dagat-Dagatan
-5th Avenue
-Del Monte
-Quezon Ave.
-E. Rodriguez
-Sta. Mesa
-Kalentong
-Pandacan
-Paco
-Vito Cruz
-Gil Puyat
-Arnaiz
-EDSA
-NAIA
-FTI
-Bicutan
-Sucat
-Alabang

MRT 12: This is an additional railway line traversing the Port Area and Roxas Boulevard from Navotas to Parañaque. It will have to be built underground so as not to destroy the aesthetic of the Luneta and Baywalk areas.

Stations:

-Navotas
-North Bay
-H. Lopez
-Capulong
-Pier 16
-Moriones
-Delpan
-Anda Circle
-Luneta
-Padre Faura
-Pedro Gil
-Remedios
-Quirino
-CCP
-Cuneta
-Redemptorist
-MOA
-PITX

Given the worsening congestion in Metro Manila and the need to move away from car-centric infrastructure, the policymakers should take into consideration the construction of additional railway lines, in addition to the ongoing projects like the North-South Commuter Railway, MRT-7, and the Metro Manila Subway, not to mention the rehabilitation of LRT-1, LRT-2, and MRT-3.
