It’s been quite a while since this project was launched, but the Department of Transportation (DOTr) just released a progress video, and it’s safe to say that the new train line is really starting to take shape. You can check out the short clip below:
We last wrote an update on the MRT-7 back in January, when the DOTr said that the project was already 50.69% complete. On paper, it might seem like not much progress was made since then, but under the current circumstances we have to say that this video has us hopeful.
Once operational, this 23km rail line will connect the MRT North Avenue Station to San Jose Del Monte in Bulacan and is expected to ferry 300,000 to 850,000 passengers daily. There will be a total of 14 stations built along this line, and it will also be connected to the other existing train lines in the metro such as the LRT-1 and MRT-3.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing this new rail line operating around Metro Manila?
