Parts[edit]

Lerma Avenue[edit]

Lerma Avenue is the road connecting Quezon Boulevard (R-8) and España Boulevard.

España Boulevard[edit]

España Boulevard

España Boulevard is an 8-lane road starting from the junction of Lerma Avenue and Nicanor Reyes Street, ending in the Mabuhay Rotonda (otherwise known as Welcome Rotonda) in Quezon City. It passes through the northernmost areas of the University Belt, including the University of Santo Tomas and Ramon Magsaysay High School. Past RMHS, it passes through the mostly residential and commercial area of Sampaloc.

Quezon Avenue[edit]

Quezon Avenue

Quezon Avenue starts from the Mabuhay Rotunda and ends in the Elliptical Road. It is one of the most important thoroughfares of Quezon City. It runs through the center of the city, lined with palm trees, government buildings, and nightclubs. It uses an interchange system on most of its intersections. This road used to be one of the most comfortable roads in the area, but had been extremely prone to heavy traffic since the construction of the G. Araneta Avenue Underpass.[1]

Elliptical Road[edit]

Elliptical Road is an 8-lane roundabout that circumscribes Quezon City Memorial Circle. R-7 continues at Commonwealth Avenue.

Commonwealth Avenue[edit]

Commonwealth Avenue starts from Elliptical Road as an 18-lane highway, the widest road in the Philippines. It ends with a junction with the Quirino Highway.

Quirino Highway[edit]

Quirino Highway

Quirino Highway is a 4 to 8 lane highway that passes through market places and industrial centers in Novaliches, Pasong Putik and Greater Lagro. This is the portion of R-7 that enters the city of San Jose Del Monte, in Bulacan Province.

San Jose Del Monte-Norzagaray Road[edit]

Quirino Highway becomes this road after crossing E. Roquero Avenue. This is the last segment of the Radial Road 7, which ends with a junction with the Maharlika Highway in Norzagaray.

North Luzon East Expressway[edit]

This expressway will be a part of Radial Road 7 when its construction is finalised.

Future Plans For Radial Road 7[edit]

There are currently no train lines in or traversing Commonwealth Avenue. The proposed Metro Rail Transit Line 7 is set to be constructed in 2016.[2]
