Expect Heavy Traffic on Quirino Highway as MRT-7 Construction Starts

Patrick Everett Tadeo

Starting today, November 6, 2017, motorists are being warned to expect heavy traffic along Quirino Highway in Quezon City as the construction of the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) begins.

In an advisory issued by the MRT-7 Project Traffic Management Task Force yesterday, November 5, 2017, private vehicles are told to avoid the highway and use alternate routes instead.

For those bound for Quezon Memorial Circle coming from Caloocan/San Jose del Monte, they may use the following alternate routes:

  • Via Sampaguita Road to Maligaya Road
    Via Malaria Road to Maligaya Road
    Via Malanting Road to Maligaya Road

For motorists bound for Caloocan/San Jose del Monte coming from Quezon Memorial Circle, they may use the following alternate routes:

  • Via Regalado Highway to Ascencion
    Via Mindanao Avenue to Ascencion or Carida-Esperanza

The MRT-7 is envisioned to be a 23-kilometer rail line with 14 stations starting from North Avenue, Quezon City up to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan that will serve around 500,000 passengers once it is operational. It will traverse Quezon City and Caloocan in Metro Manila and will end at the proposed intermodal terminal station at San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.

The MRT-7 is expected to be completed by the last quarter of 2019.
