Hi DOTr! 

I would like to ask for the exact coordinates of the reported new depot location of MRT Line 7 that is now said to be located in Quezon City instead of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan.

This is in relation to one of your Facebook posts showing some photos. Would like to know specifically where in QC the depot will be located. Thanks!

Hi. This is in response to your requested information.

I am already a graduate so the school question is not applicable. However, I am a member of the organization UP Mountaineers and the reason why I made the request is to be able to determine whether the depot location infringes or negatively affects in any way the nearby La Mesa Watershed. Providing the requested information allows us as well as other Filipinos to better visualize it in platforms like Google Maps, for example.
