THE DAVAO CITY LRT WOULD BE THE FIRST IN MINDANAO
Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is in South Korea to meet with investors of the proposed construction of a Light Rail Transit (LRT) in Davao City.
Apparently hot on the multi-billion peso project, Duterte went on a trip to Korea even as a feasibility study is already ongoing on the multi-billion peso mass transport project seen as a cure to the city’s growing vehicular traffic woes.
The mayor earlier said an LRT is a dream project he wanted to build as he grappled in finding solutions to the city’s traffic jams.
Duterte left for South Korea on a self-financed, unofficial trip on October 27 to pursue talks with the investors and officials of the Korean Engineering Company (KEC).
The big-ticket mass transport system, the second in the country after the National Capital Region, may be built under the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) scheme funded by international lending agencies like the Asian Development Bank.
