ANTIPOLO City Mayor Andrea “Andeng” Ynares said the Light Rail Transit 2 – Antipolo Station is set to be inaugurated on Friday (July 1).

Expected to grace the event are officials from Malacanang, Department of Transportation and the Antipolo LGU.

Ynares said the start of operations of the LRT 2- Antipolo Station is expected to benefit workers and passengers of LRT-2.

“Tulad ng ating mga kababayan, excited na rin po tayo na maging operational na ang train project na ito na magpapabilis ng transporasyon papunta at pabalik ng Antipolo hanggang Maynila,” said Mayor Ynares.

“May kaunting pag-aalangan lang tayo sa pagbubukas nito dahil may mga tinatapos at may ongoing construction pa tulad ng Eastbound Exit Stairs papuntang Masinag intersection, pati na rin ang DOTr Traffic Management Plan katuwang ang iba’t ibang ahensya gaya ng LTFRB at iba pa at pribadong sector,” she added.

“Kaya naman ang ating pakiusap sa ating mga kababayan, mga PUV drivers at mga motorist, ay magbitbit ng pasensya sa pagbiyahe. Dahil sa new normal, kailangan din po natin sumunod sa mga health protocol bukod sa mga batas trapiko,” Mayor Ynares said.

The opening of the LRT2 Antipolo Station is expected to decongest traffic in the area, particularly in Masinag, Antipolo City.

The scheduled opening of the LRT Masinag Station last June 23 was postponed by LRTA administrator Reynaldo Berroya to complete the “signaling migration” and “integration” to ensure zero problems.
