MRT-7 59.7% complete – DOT

San Miguel Corp’s P69 billion Metro Rail Transit Line 7, which will connect North Avenue in Quezon City to San Jose del Monte City in Bulacan is on track to start commercial operations next year with its completion rate reaching 59.72 percent as of December last year.

According to the Department of Transportation, the 22-kilometer MRT7 will cut travel time from three hours to just 35 minutes.

Once operational, the MRT-7 is expected to serve between 300,000 and 850,000 passengers daily, with sufficient room for capacity augmentation to accommodate the potential increase of the rail transit’s ridership in the future,” DOTr said.

Slated completion by the end of the year, the MRT 7 will have 14 stations located at North Ave., 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.

San Miguel will also build a depot in San Jose del Monte which will house a control center, administrative offices, warehouse and facilities for train cars.

It earlier completed the Skyway Stage 3 project, a 14.82-km, six-lane elevated expressway which will extend the existing Skyway from Buendia to Balintawak and will link the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) to NLEX and Skyway Stage 4, a 58.0-9km roadway from South of Metro Manila Skyway to Batasan Complex in Quezon City.

San Miguel is also building the P734-billion Bulacan International Airport project, targeted for completion by 2025
