THE MRT Line 7 project is expected to go fully operational by next year, but may also operate partially by December 2022.
MRT-7, which cost P68.2 billion, starts at North Avenue in Quezon City up to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.
At the Laging Handa public briefing, Department of Transportation (DOTr) Undersecretary Timothy Batan said that the progress rate of the construction of MRT-7 is already at 65 percent.
It is expected that the travel experience of passengers will be more convenient since it will only take 30 minutes to travel from Quezon City up to San Jose del Monte in the province of Bulacan from the former two hours travel time via bus.
It can be recalled that the six train sets for the MRT-7’s 18 train cars have already been delivered last December 2021.
The MRT-7 is expected to accommodate up to 300,000 passengers daily and capacity will increase even further as the years go by.
