SA KABILA ng inaasahang matinding pagsikip ng daloy ng trapiko sa Parañaque, sinabihan ni Mayor Edwin Olivarez ang kanyang constituents na huwag mabahala sapagkat ang itinatayong Metro Manila Subway Project (MMSP) na sisimulan na sa susunod na buwan ay magdudulot ng maliking ginhawa sa mga mananakay kapag natapos na ito.

Nagpahayag ng paniniwala ang alkalde ng Parañaque na mababawasan na ang trapiko at bibilis ang byahe papunta sa iba’t ibang bahagi ng National Capital Region, kabilang na ang patungong Las Piñas, Taguig at sa Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Hiniling ni Olivarez sa residente ng kanyang nasasakupan na magkaroon sana sila ng kaunti pang pasensya lalo pa’t kasabay ng nasabing proyekto ay kasalukuyan ding ginagawa ang iba pang imprastraktura gaya ng LRT Extension project mula Baclaran hanggang Bacoor sa Cavite at ang C5 Connector mula Taguig hanggang Coastal Road sa Parañaque. Ang mga ito ay pare-parehong matatapos sa taong 2020.

Ang groundbreaking ceremony ng 73-kilometrong subway project ay sa 2019 na samantalang target na matapos ito sa 2025, ayon sa National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA).

Babagtasin ng subway project ang mga kalye ng lungsod Quezon, Pasig, Makati, Taguig, at Pasay, mula Mindanao Avenue/Quirino Highway hanggang NAIA.
