Overall LRT could cost at least 50 billion patacas: auditor

In a hard-hitting report published yesterday, the Commission of Audit (CA) says that the estimated construction cost for the eight sections of Macau’s Light Rail Transit (LRT) system that the government has planned for the short, medium and long terms amounts to at least 50 billion patacas.

The report also says that the Transport Infrastructure Office (GIT), which oversees the city’s LRT project, is to blame for the long delays in the construction of the LRT Taipa section. The office was set up in 2007 as a “project team” for the planning of Macau’s LRT project and the coordination of its construction.

The estimated construction cost of over 50 billion patacas still does not include the other three planned LRT sections – that the Transport Infrastructure Office could not provide estimated construction costs for or any information which could allow the commission to make an estimate.
