During this time, a tunnel boring machine will be transported to the site of the Camp Aguinaldo Station. The machine will be used to excavate the tunnel connecting the Metro Manila Subway’s Camp Aguinaldo Station and Ortigas Station. (READ: MAP: Metro Manila Subway stations)

A few weeks earlier, the DOTr also transported another tunnel boring machine, which will be used to construct the tunnels of the Metro Manila Subway’s Ortigas Avenue Station, Shaw Boulevard Station, and Kalayaan Avenue Station.

Once completed, the country’s first underground railway system will stretch from East Valenzuela to Bicutan, with a spur line to NAIA Terminal 3. Full operations for the subway is targeted for 2029. –
