THE Philippines’ Department of Transportation has awarded Hyundai Engineering & Construction, Korea, a contract for the construction of Sections 4, 5, and 6 of the Philippine Southern Urban Railway, a 56km-long project to connect Metro Manila with the city of Calamba, as part of the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) network.
Hyundai E&C has a 90% stake in the contracts for the sections, which cover 32km, and will oversee construction excluding some foundation works, which will be undertaken by South Korea’s Dong-Ah Geological Engineering Co.
Dong-Ah secured the groundwork contract for Won 186bn ($US 134m), according to the company.
In June, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved a loan of up to $US 4.3bn to help finance the construction of the South Commuter Railway Project to connect Metro Manila with the city of Calamba in the Philippines, as part of the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) network.
