MANILA, Philippines — Motorists should expect traffic congestion along Quirino Highway in Quezon City starting Monday, November 6, due to the construction of the Metro Rail Transit Line 7.

In an advisory , the MRT-7 Project Traffic Management Task Force advised private vehicles to avoid the highway and use alternate routes instead.

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

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

Vehicles bound for Caloocan or San Jose del Monte from Quezon Memorial Circle, on the other hand, may use the following alternate routes:

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

The MRT-7 is a 23-kilometer rail line with 14 stations from North Avenue, Quezon City to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan that is scheduled for completion by the last quarter of 2019.
