MRT 7 to Bulacan finally breaks ground

Philippine Daily Inquirer / 01:30 AM April 21, 2016

After a long delay, the P69.3-billion Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT 7), which will connect Quezon City to Bulacan province, finally broke ground on Wednesday.

< Edited >

Completion by 2020

The MRT 7 contract signed in 2008 was delayed by the change of government leaders, financial requirements and a controversy over whether the common station should be built at SM North Edsa or at TriNoma, also on Edsa.
