That's understandable. What else can a business do to get patrons other than making convenience it's strong point if they can't compete with pricing?

I think the current North Avenue station will be demolished. If not demolished, will be abandoned.

Hindi masyadong ideal kung may North Avenue station na, tas may common station pa sa harap.

Looks very good!

Much better than the proposal where the MRT-7 will be at North EDSA while Line 1 and 3 are much further south by TriNoMa

This looks much more unified! I wonder how they will place the Line 9 station though

Apparently, the conceptual design of the common station is attributed to this person

I'm no engineer I can see that - what can we do with people pretend they're educated but in reality they are as bobo as a simian of the lowest order. I give up.

Control center ata yung nasa taas. Kung ililipat sa common station yung control center ng MRT-3 (unless kung magkakaroon ng bagong signalling system sa line 3), baka ganun ang gawin nila.

Is that a massive expansion for Trinoma (transparent placeholder) I'm seeing?

Too expensive? Seriously? What the heck is he smoking? A common station is done to ease commuter travel, not to make them walk longer to get to their next mode of transport. It has been done in many countries, and those encourage people to use public transportation more often. Something is seriously wrong with that man.

Current cabinet members have already agreed that passenger comfort and satisfaction is a priority over price, when it comes to bidding of projects.

Do30 should be wary of this guy Alvarez. slowly he's parting ways with Digong. I think he has his eyes set on the next pres election. Just my opinion.

They will just install "trapal" with matching "tukod" in case of heavy rain. Philippine style...

Huwag mong seryosohin dahil mukhang para sa presentation lang ang design.

Well, it was originally priced at P770m only and with three lines converging under one station. Now the "common station" is split into 3 just to accomodate the whims of those big malls. and we, the taxpayers will end up paying for the additional costs. Plus it will be incovenient for us commuters to transfer from one rail line to another
