MANILA -- Philippine conglomerate Alliance Global Group said Wednesday it wants to build a monorail that will link a township project to one of Metro Manila's busiest train lines.

Alliance Global told the local stock exchange it submitted an unsolicited proposal to the government to build Skytrain, a monorail that will link its township Uptown Bonifacio development in Taguig City to a Metro Rail Transit station in Makati City.
