Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade provided updates as project proponent SMC on Thursday unveiled the first 18 out of 108 train cars, manufactured by South Korea’s Hyundai Rotem, to the government entourage led by President Duterte.
Once completed, the 22-kilometer railway line is expected to reduce travel time from North Avenue, Quezon City, to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan, to just 35 minutes from the current two to three hours.
Ahead of passenger operations in December, the MRT 7 will also begin tests runs in April next year, according to the Department of Transportation.
The MRT 7 project will have 14 stations: Quezon North Avenue Joint Station, Quezon Memorial Circle, University Avenue, Tandang Sora, Don Antonio, Batasan, Manggahan, Doña Carmen, Regalado, Mindanao Avenue, Quirino, Sacred Heart, Tala and San Jose del Monte.
SMC said the line would serve around 300,000 passengers per day during its first year and an estimated 850,000 passengers daily on its 12th year.
Bulacan Bulk Water (Potable Water Supply)
More people in Bulacan are finally set to gain access to affordable and reliable potable water supply, as San Miguel Corporation (SMC) recently formalized agreements with seven water districts in the province, to be covered by Stage 3 of its Bulacan Bulk Water Supply Project (BBWSP).
These include the towns of Norzagaray, Hagonoy, Pandi, Baliwag, San Rafael, San Miguel, and San Ildefonso earlier this year.
“These public infrastructures will improve public mobility, productivity and help boost economic activity in the province,” said Villar.
