This contract is part of the Philippines’ North-South Commuter Railway Project, which will connect Clark International Airport (CRK), north of Manila, with the province of Laguna in the southern province of Laguna.

This new line is part of the national initiative to improve transportation surrounding the Philippine capital city.

The latest agreement builds on CAF’s close strategic relationship with Mitsubishi Corporation. The companies have previously collaborated on several successful railway projects, including the supply of rolling stock for Line 1 of the Manila Light Rail Transit System.
