LRT Line 1 Capacity Expansion Project – Phase I
In September 1996, the AML Consortium, which was led by Marubeni, materialized the LRTA’s vision to increase the capacity of the Line 1 system by 50% since its operation in 1984.

Known as the first light rail transit line in Metro Manila, the LRT Line 1 system started with thirty-two (32) trains, each comprising of two double-articulated semi-permanently coupled, non-air conditioned light rail vehicles.

The Capacity Expansion Project - Phase 1 was completed in 1999, transforming the existing 2-car trains into 3-car trains and adding seven (7) more 4-car trains to cope with the increasing ridership demand.

The scope of works included civil and architectural stations and depot, mechanical and electrical services, trackworks including associated formation and drainage, traction power and catenary, signaling and telecommunication, depot equipment, rolling stocks, capital spare parts and comprehensive training.

LRT Line 1 Capacity Expansion Project – Phase II Package B
Marubeni entered into a contract with the Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) in March 2002 for the acquisition and installation of air-conditioning unit (ACU) system on the original fleet which was procured during the early 1980s.

Funded through JBIC Loan, the program equipped the fleet with air-conditioning units and associated equipment and materials, as required to provide fully functioning air-conditioning systems. This had also provided corresponding improvement (s) on the Rectifier Substations along LRT Line 1 System. The scope of works included rolling stock works, rectifier substation works, system integration, supply of spare parts and provision of training, and software modifications. The project was completed in July 2004.

The Metro Manila Strategic Mass Rail Transit Development Line 2 Project - Package IV


The project refers to the construction of civil and electro-mechanical structures and associated components for a 14-kilometer double track, mostly elevated carriageway along the route Manila – San Juan – Quezon City – Marikina – Pasig City. The line has eighteen (18) new four-car trains traversing a total of eleven (11) stations. It has a design capacity of 64,000 pphpd based on 90 seconds headway; and 1,600 passengers per 4-car train.

Marubeni spearheaded the Asia-Europe MRT Consortium (AEMC) and was responsible for the overall contractual works and the system integration of the Philippine MRT Line 2 Project, Contract Package 4. Works included design procurement, installation, system integration, engineering, testing and commissioning of electro-mechanical system (Telecommunication, Signaling, OCS, AFCS, Power Supply, Walkway, and MIS), rolling stocks, and trackworks.

Philippine National Railways Commuter Line South Rehabilitation Project
Aiming to decongest traffic in Metro Manila, the scope of the rehabilitation of the Commuter Service South Line of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) ran from Tutuban to San Pedro, Laguna, and finally to Carmona with a total distance of 40.26 kms. The project also was envisioned to augment the carrying capacity of the then existing facilities and provide low cost and reliable mode of transportation characterized by rapid, safe, frequent and punctual services.

Cebu South Coastal Road Project, Viaduct Section Segment 3
Located at Dulho-San Roque, Cebu City, the extent of work for Segment 3- Central Business District (CBD) covered the construction of offshore and onshore viaduct, with a 4-lane approach road of asphalt concrete pavement and a total length of 2.55 kms.

Metro Manila Flood Control Project II Package-B (MMFCP II)
The project included the construction of the San Andres Pumping Station, improvement of Sewerage System, and Supply and Installation of Plant and Power Supply System. Package B was focused on the San Andres Drainage area component of the MMFCP II which was intended to drain run-off flood-prone areas of Pandacan, Santa Ana, Manila, and Makati City.
