Flood Risk and Geotechnical Assessment for the Manila Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT7) Project
Philkoei International, Inc. and EEI Corp.
Manila Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) is a 22.8 kilometer rapid transit line consisting of 14 stations, with the line running in the northeast direction from Quezon City to San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan. EEI Corp. commissioned AMH to quantify the flood risk on selected stations by the generation of inundation maps within selected sections. The engagement involves synthesis of data collected from known government agencies (e.g. DPWH, NAMRIA, PAGASA, DOST), hydrologic modelling and hydraulic analysis for eight (8) flood-prone areas. Flood levels were identified and localized inundation maps were prepared to serve as inputs for EEI in determining any required intervention to the elevations of at-grade stations or design of pump stations for depressed sections.
AMH also assisted Geotechnics Philippines, Inc. (GPI) in the evaluation of the 149 boreholes. This includes determination of shear strength parameters and foundation analysis which will serve as input in future detailed engineering designs for structures to be erected along the MRT 7 alignment.
