MMDA CLOSES PORTION OF NORTH AVE. DUE TO MRT-7 CONSTRUCTION



MANILA -- The stretch of North Avenue from Agham Road to Quezon Memorial Circle will be closed to motorists Monday night due to the ongoing construction of the Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7), an official of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said Monday.

“This is to pave the way for the removal of old electrical posts affected by the construction of the MRT 7,” MMDA general manager Jojo Garcia said in a press briefing, noting that part of North Avenue will be closed to traffic from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. Tuesday.

Motorists are advised to take alternate routes to avoid heavy traffic in the area.

The MRT-7 is envisioned to be a 22.8-km railway line that will consist of 14 stations, traversing from North Avenue in Quezon City to San Jose del Monte in Bulacan province. (PNA)
