Where the old LRT Line 1 meets the new LRT Line 3, that is.
LRT Line 1, running along Taft Ave. (from Baclaran in Parañaque City) and Rizal Avenue (to Monumento in Caloocan City), is the first and oldest light trail mass transportation system in the country. It became operational in 1984.
LRT Line 3 running along EDSA (from Monumento to North Avenue), on the other hand, is the newest and completes the “circumferential” light rail transit system by connecting LRT Line 1 and the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) which runs along EDSA from North Avenue until Taft Avenue in Pasay City where it also connects with LRT Line 1 via the Taft Avenue-Rotonda station. LRT Line 3 was completed in late 2010 and became fully operational in early 2011.

SOMETIME in mid-August 2011, photography enthusiast Caloy Llamas ”hitchhiked” into a helicopter ride that brought him to the skies over Metro Manila and much of Central Luzon. The views from the top were too tempting for Caloy to simply pass by without snapping some photos. “My friend was shooting a few infrastructure sites for a multinational company and I merely tagged along, to act as a back-up in case, and as a mentoring exercise for me as well. So, I was pretty much free to shoot anything I saw and felt shooting at along our route.”
This post is part of a series featuring Caloy‘s August 16, 2011 aerial photos of Metro Manila, Bulacan, Pampanga, Zambales, and possibly some portions of Bataan.
