The Commonwealth traffic will get a whole lot worse due to MRT7 construction progresses.

Daily travelers and drivers traversing Commonwealth Avenue must predict a probable traffic buildup in Metro Manila’s transportation crisis as the construction of the MRT-7 guideway is now underway.

According to GMA, the construction will occupy two routes in both directions between Central Avenue and the University Avenue. This means that from seven routes, the activity will make two routes be closed during the construction of the new guideway, leaving five routes for the daily commuters. The construction started Tuesday (August 15, 2017) and will make the traffic jam a whole lot worse for those plying through Commonwealth Avenue daily.
