Emerald station is an under construction station on the Manila Light Rail Transit System Line 2 (LRT-2) in the Philippines. It is part of the LRT Line 2 East Extension. The LRT-2 east extension plan calls for an elevated 2-station, 4.14-kilometer extension eastward from Santolan, which means that this station would be above ground. The station would be located near at the intersection of the Marikina–Infanta Highway, Mayor Gil Fernando Ave., and Felix (Imelda) Ave., which are close to Emerald Drive.[1]

The station would be the first for trains headed east from Santolan and the eleventh for trains headed from Recto.

Construction of the LRT-2 east extension began in September 2015 and is expected to be completed by third quarter of 2017.[2]

Nearby landmarks[edit]

When completed, the station will link directly to Robinsons Metro East, Sta. Lucia East Grandmall and residential area of Barangay San Roque in Marikina.

Transportation links[edit]

There is a jeepney terminal in Robinsons Metro East and Sta. Lucia East Grandmall for those who are going to Marikina, Quezon City (Commonwealth Market) and different parts of Rizal.
