Moving by Rail through QC

railtrains2Quezon City prepares for the start of construction of MRT-7 early this year, which will connect passengers easily to Bulacan.  The Manila Mass Rapid Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) is a proposed rapid transit line in Metro Manila. When completed, the line will be 23 km long with 14 stations.

mrt7picThe line has been planned to run in a northeast direction, traversing Quezon City and a part of Caloocan City in Metro Manila before ending at the City of San Jose del Monte in Bulacan province.

The project's major components are:
• Rail    : about 23 km of railway from SM City North Avenue to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan, with 14 stations, through a tunnel under the Quezon Memorial Circle continuing  along   Commonwealth Avenue and Quirino Highway.
• Road  : about 22 km long with a 6-lane highway from San Jose del Monte to Marilao / Bocaue, Bulacan NLEX exit.
• Intermodal transport terminal at San Jose, Bulacan.
• Real estate developments around the terminals.

The project has been reported to have a combined 45-km of road and rail transportation project from the Bocaue exit of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) to the intersection of North Avenue and EDSA. The 22-km, 6-lane asphalt road will connect the NLEX to the major transportation hub development in San Jose del Monte.

The project proponents are Universal MRT Corporation, composed of a consortium of the Tranzen Group, EEI Corporation and SM Prime Holdings which submitted an unsolicited proposal to the Philippine Department of Transportation and Communications in 2002. In June 2007, DOTC presented a Swiss Challenge in which four business firms submitted their counter proposal. In January 2008, DOTC announced that the ULC proposal emerged as winner and the contract was signed. In May 2009, The Investment Coordination Committee (ICC) of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) approved the MRT-7 project.

The Commonwealth Tandang Sora Flyover was redesigned and rehabilitated and the Luzon Avenue-C-5 Flyover also provides a higher elevated structure to accommodate the elevated Station 4 (Tandang Sora MRT Station)

The planned stations are:
• North Avenue (Quezon City)
• Quezon Memorial  (Quezon City)
• University Avenue  (Quezon City)
• Tandang Sora  (Quezon City)
• Don Antonio (Quezon City)
• Batasan (Quezon City)
• Manggahan  (Quezon City)
• Doña Carmen  (Quezon City)
• Regalado Highway (Quezon City)
• Mindanao Avenue  (Quezon City)
• Quirino  (Quezon City)
• Sacred Heart  (Quezon City)
• Tala  (North Caloocan City)
• Araneta (San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan)
