Get involved

THE Quezon City government should insist, as it is imperative to the interest of its people especially those who might be dislocated, to have a hand on the proposed 23-kilometer Metro Rail Transit (MRT-7) project.

Hence, Mayor Bistek Bautista is on the right tack when he explores at the possibility of entering into public-private partnership with the stakeholders in a determined bid to address traffic woes in the city, among others.

The local government is certainly after the welfare of the affected sectors, including drivers and operators so it’s just proper for him to get involved in the project, after all he would be the first to get the blame once more residents are disenfranchised in the process.

Under the proposal, MRT-7 project has 14 stations that include North Avenue, Quezon Memorial, University Avenue, Tandang Sora, Don Antonio, Batasan, Manggahan, Doña Imelda, Regalado Avenue, Mindanao Avenue, Quirino and Sacred Heart in Quezon City, Tala in Caloocan City and Araneta in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.

Since the project will traverse the city’s major thoroughfares, it’s indeed plausible for the QC government to insist to have a say over the project since it has better knowledge as to the situation of the affected areas, something that Dr. Manuel Alba, Bistek’s senior adviser, wants to point out.

If given leeway to identify the terminals or stations of the proposed project within its territorial jurisdiction, the city government can effectively promote its target areas that willl surely be beneficial to the residents in the long run.
