MMDA: MRT-7 TUNNEL CONSTRUCTION TO CAUSE HEAVY TRAFFIC



The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has announced that the construction of the tunnel for the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7) will cause heavy traffic from North Avenue to Tandang Sora Avenue in Quezon City.

According to Neomie Recio, director of the Traffic Engineering Center of the MMDA, the construction will cause traffic because the capacity of the road will be reduced.

Among the affected roads are North Avenue, Elliptical Road and Commonwealth Avenue.

Recio also added – the construction will be done 'round the clock' – yet the MMDA will deploy traffic enforcers to guide motorists.
