DOTC announces kick-off of MRT Line 7 construction




The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) has announced the start of the construction of the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) which will connect Bulacan to the MRT-3 and the LRT-1.

The project costs Php69.3 billion and consists of a 23-km railway system with 14 stations from North Avenue, Quezon City to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.


 

It is expected to accommodate 350,000 daily passengers and shorten travel time from the current 3.5 hours on the road to one (1) hour when it becomes operational by April 2020, 4 years from now.

    Napanood ko sa balita kagabi (State of the Nation with Jessica Soho) 2008 pa lang pala planado na ito then 4 years ang construction at di na raw kailangan ng 3rd party para suriin pa kung high standard ang mga gasgamitin d2 (pero I doubt hehe). Palagay ko sapat na panahon na yun para mapulido e2 at mapag aralan, unless KURAKUTAN ang kalabasan ng project na e2. Goodluck!!!

    Improve first the present one, before create a new one. Dapat magamit ng tama ang pondo hindi yung puro tuwid nga kulang naman sa gawa.
