    MRT-7 Philippines: It took nearly 20 years from the submission of the Unsolicited Proposal for the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) before its actual construction.

    The Unsolicited Proposal for the MRT-7 was first submitted to the then DOTC on 27 August 2001, and the Concession Agreement was eventually signed on 18 August 2008.

    However, as of June 2016, not a single post has been built, and not a single train has even been ordered / started production. Actual construction of the project only began in August 2016-– during the Duterte Administration.

    Now, after two decades, in partnership with the San Miguel group, construction of the MRT-7 is in full swing, and delivery of brand new trains from South Korea is already ongoing.

    MRT 7 in Metro Manila, Philippines completed by President Duterte.

    The rail line’s overall progress rate is now at 62.10%.

    The MRT-7 project is expected to accommodate 300,000 passengers during its first year of full operations, and up to 850,000 by its 12th year.

    Once completed, the 22-kilometer railway will link North Avenue, Quezon City and San Jose del Monte, Bulacan, reducing travel time from the present 2 to 3 hours to just 35 minutes.
