First batch of MRT-7 trainsets arrive

San Miguel Corporation (SMC) has taken delivery of the first batch of trainsets for its MRT-7 project. SMC said the ship containing six train cars arrived on September 6 at the Port of Manila from Masan Port in South Korea.

SMC noted that the trainsets “will be positioned between Station 3 (University Avenue Station) and Station 4 (Tandang Sora Station). As construction on the project itself continues to progress, we expect more train deliveries in the coming months.”

“The timely arrival of these brand new, high-quality trains from South Korea–known as one of the world’s best train and rail systems builders–is a welcome development,” said SMC President Ramon S. Ang.

“At a time when many are feeling uncertain about our country’s future because of the pandemic, this shows that the job of nation-building, continues; that the work of improving our infrastructure, boosting our economic growth prospects, and investing in our country’s brighter future, also doesn’t stop–especially for us in San Miguel,” he added.
