"This project will forever change the landscape of Makati, and it is an honor for me and my administration to leave our beloved city this legacy," she added.

The subway project, also called the Makati Intra-city Subway, is an 11-kilometer underground rapid transit line that will link establishments across the Makati business district.
"The project is well underway and construction and planning stages are in full swing," the city government said.
