The San Miguel Corporation-backed company has already fully complied with the financial closure requirements by the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) which was the only hindrance before proceeding with the contruction dating back to August 2014. The rail component MRT7 project is a 22.8-kilometer rapid-transit system with 108 rail cars in a 3-car train configuration. It will have maximum daily passenger capacity of 850,000.

14 trains will be contructed along the route of the new MRT starting from San Jose del Monte, Bulacan to North Avenue, Quezon City. There will be a common stationat the end of the line, which will be located near TriNoma, wherein passengers will be able to transfer to the existing MRT3 and LRT1.

Target completion of the project is on August 2019.

    How about cities outside Manila? There are big population, progress and investors like in Cebu, Iloilo and Davao. They deserve to be in the pipeline too!
