MRT Line 7 That Will Connect Bulacan to MRT-3 and LRT-1 Starts Construction
BY KC CANLAS • APRIL 20, 2016



The construction of the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) has kicked off today with a groundbreaking ceremony held at the Quezon Memorial Circle. The MRT-7 is expected to be operational in four years. This new line will connect Bulacan to the MRT-3 and the LRT-1.


According to a news release from gov.ph:

The P69.30-billion project includes the development of a 23-km railway system with 14 stations from North Avenue, Quezon City to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan. Once completed and operational by April 2020, the MRT-7 is expected to initially accommodate 350,000 daily passengers and shorten travel time from the current 3.5 hours on the road to one (1) hour. Once further upgrades are made, ultimately 800,000 passengers per day will benefit from the project.

The project covers the development of an integrated transportation system, which includes the said railway system, a 22-km highway from the NLEX Bocaue interchange, and an intermodal transport terminal (ITT) adjacent to the San Jose del Monte Station. Commuters can take public utility vehicles (PUVs) or private cars and use the new highway from NLEX, alight at the ITT, and board the MRT-7 going to North Avenue, Quezon City.

What do you think of MRT-7?

DOTC, SMC break ground for P69.3B MRT-7
The project will be operational in April 2020

April 20, 2016 (updated)


By Ces Dimalanta and Emmie Abadilla

After seven years, residents from Quezon City, Caloocan City, and Bulacan can soon expect a faster and more convenient commute to the metropolis as the construction of the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) will be in full swing starting Wednesday (April 20, 2016).

The 23-kilometer railway system is set to be operational by April 2020.


Once the MRT-7 is built, it will only take 30 minutes to commute end-to-end, compared to the current two-hour travel time. The MRT-7 will also connect to the MRT-3, with a provision to connect to LRT-1.
Commuters can take public utility vehicles (PUVs) or private cars and use the new highway from NLEX, alight at the ITT, and board the MRT-7 going to North Avenue, Quezon City.
The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC), led by DOTC Secretary Jun Abaya, together with San Miguel Corporation (SMC) president Ramong Ang, and Universal LRT Corporation (ULC) representatives led the groundbreaking

ceremony at the Quezon Memorial Circle, which was graced by President Benigno S. Aquino III.
“The long-awaited MRT-7 will serve commuters who ply the heavily congested Commonwealth Avenue area for work and school on a daily basis. The new railway system will not only significantly lessen travel time along this corridor, but also help decongest traffic in Caloocan and NLEX,” said Abaya.

With the P69.3-billion project comes the railway system with 14 stations that will run from SM North EDSA in North Avenue to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan. MRT-7 is set to shorten travel time from 3.5 hours on the road to one hour. Daily trips are initially expected to accommodate 350,000 passengers.

During his speech, Aquino shared more good news regarding the daily trips, saying that once train upgrades continue, passenger accommodation is expected to reach as much as 800,000. He also lauded the said project for being the first mass transportation system for Filipinos who are living in Northeast NCR and Bulacan.

The project covers the development of an integrated transportation system, which includes the said railway system, a 22-km highway from the NLEX Bocaue interchange, and an intermodal transport terminal (ITT) adjacent to the San Jose del Monte Station. Commuters can take public utility vehicles (PUVs) or private cars and use the new highway from NLEX, alight at the ITT, and board the MRT-7 going to North Avenue, Quezon City.

MRT-7 to decongest Metro Manila traffic by 2020
Published April 20, 2016 3:39pm
Once the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) is fully operational by 2020, the mass rail system is expected to ease traffic in Metro Manila and cut the travel time from Quezon City to Bulacan by over two-thirds or from more than three hours to one hour.

"Ang mga nakatira malapit dito sa Quezon Memorial Circle, sa kahabaan ng Commonwealth Avenue at Fairview, hanggang sa mga taga-San Jose del Monte, Bulacan, ay magkakaroon na ng mas mabilis at episyenteng paraan para makarating sa kanilang mga trabaho, pati na sa iba pang sentro ng komersyo ng Kamaynilaan," President Benigno S.C Aquino III said during the groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday.



"Ang biyahe mula San Jose del Monte hanggang sa Makati, na umaabot ngayon sa tatlo’t kalahating oras, magiging isang oras na lang," the President noted.

Construction of the 22-kilometer elevated mass rail system is set to start Wednesday. – VDS, GMA News - See more at: http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story....UclecsGx.dpuf

Chinese LRVs enter traffic in Manila
10 May 2016





PHILIPPINES: The first Chinese-built light rail vehicles for MRT Line 3 in Manila entered service on May 7 after several months of testing and final fit-out.

The Department of Transport & Communications placed an order for 48 twin-section LRVs worth 3·8bn pesos with CRRC, and the first pre-series trainset arrived in Manila in August last year, since when it has been undergoing static tests and 5 000 km of trial running. The cars are being built by CRRC’s Dalian Locomotive & Rolling Stock Co subsidiary, and all are due to arrive in the Philippines by the end of 2017

A petition to save LRTA Line-2,

https://www.change.org/p/philippine-...-correct-mrt-2

This is a major issue concerning Line-2, the only existing heavy rail rapid transit system in Metro Manila.

Secretary Tugade of the Department of Transportation and Communication has plans to convert Line-2 to a Bus Rapid Transit system with advise from Yuseco of Intelligent Trackworks. In addition is the citing of false statements such has rapid transit lines being converted to BRT in both HK and Shanghai where the former does not have a BRT system.

And also the fact the line-2 extension is already taking place.

Line-2 uses a heavy rail rolling stock from Hyundai Rotem.

The reason why it is called light rail is because, this line is managed by The Light Rail Transit Authority.

This a heavy rail / full metro line.

I agree. I think the conversion of any rail rapid transit line into a bus rapid transit line would be a dumb and terrible idea, especially in an urban area that is among the most densely populated in the world. I can imagine the traffic congestion in the Manila area only getting worse if the conversion of LRT-2 to BRT actually goes forward.
