  • San Miguel Corp. (SMC) is all set to break ground for the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) following the completion of the financial closure requirements for the project last February.

    In a briefing yesterday, SMC president and COO Ramon Ang said ground-breaking could happen as early as April or May depending on the availability of President Aquino.

    “We have already complied with all the requirements and we should be doing the groundbreaking very soon with President Aquino,” he added.

    Based on the approved timetable, the project is targeted for completion on Aug. 17, 2019.

    The 22.8-kilometer rail system will run from North Avenue corner EDSA in Quezon City, and pass through Commonwealth Ave. Regalado Ave. and Quirino Highway up to the proposed Intermodal Transportation Terminal in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.

    Once completed, the project is expected to serve two million passengers in the cities of Quezon and Caloocan as well as the province of Bulacan.

    At present, Metro Manila is served by three rail transit systems – Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line 1 (from Roosevelt station in Quezon City until Baclaran station in Pasay), LRT Line 2 (from Santolan station in Pasig City until Recto station in Manila) and Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (from North Ave. station in Quezon City until Taft in Pasay City).(Pphil star)
