Wish it didn’t take so long to commute to the north? Here’s something that might just make the commute less of a hassle.
The Department of Transportation (DOTr) announced yesterday that the MRT-7 is now 49.22 percent complete, according to GMA News Online. The railway line, which is scheduled to be completed in 2021, will have 14 stations connecting the MRT-3 North Avenue station in Quezon City to San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan. It will supposedly cut down travel time from two to three hours to only 35 minutes.
In a Facebook post, the DOTr said civil works of nine out of the 14 stations are ongoing and the 108 train cars are ready to be shipped.
It’s been more than three years since construction began, according to GMA News Online. In July, the DOTr said the project was at least 44 percent complete, according to ABS-CBN News.
