Activity
BRT

The regional authorities of the cities of Navotas and Caloocan, as well as Philippine National Railways, the main client for the project, have renewed their confidence in SYSTRA. This new phase of the project consists of carrying out the Detailed Engineering Design for the future lines of the BRT network.

Named Navento, a contraction of Navotas and Monumento (the name of a district of the city of Caloocan), the two towns on the route of the future BRT, this network will be the first modern BRT in the Philippines. It will also connect with line 1 of the Manila metro.

AN IDEAL MOBILITY SOLUTION

This contract is a clear indication that SYSTRA Philippines has become an essential player in providing solutions to the critical transportation problems of the country. I see this new mode of transport, while still underdeveloped, as having great potential as it is less expensive than the creation of metros or guided railway lines and can be readily adapted and replicated in other highly urbanised cities in the country.

A MULTIDISCIPLINARY PROJECT FOR SYSTRA

Designers, coordinators, planners, architects, and engineers – no fewer than forty SYSTRA Philippines staff will be involved in this project, as well as several international profiles, including a systems expert from SYSTRA Singapore. Together, they will have to organise the topographical and geotechnical studies for the preparatory work, carry out a value analysis phase to ensure that the project is optimised, as well as the design studies for the 10 stations and the depot for the two lines.

The scope of the project includes architectural, structural, electromechanical, systems and ticketing studies. The detailed design phase also includes the preparation of technical specifications for each of the trades in preparation for the construction phases.
