1st Set of New MRT-3 Train Completed Tomorrow

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) is another step closer to completing the first new train set to be added to the Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) system, as the assembly of the second and third new light rail vehicles (LRVs) begins tonight at the Taft Avenue Station in Pasay City.

The two (2) LRVs arrived in Manila on February 17, and are part of the 48 new coaches procured under the DOTC-MRT3 capacity expansion project, which will increase the railway's capacity to over 800,000 daily passengers.

Once testing of the coaches is completed, the new train set will begin running for public use before April 2016.

Traffic Advisory

The public and motorists are advised to expect heavier traffic in the vicinity of the MRT-3 Taft Avenue station from 5 PM today until 12 NN tomorrow, as one lane — the innermost lane on the EDSA southbound side — will be closed to ensure the safety of motorists near the site.

Assembly works will principally take place during the MRT-3's non-operating hours, so as to cause the least possible disturbance to train riders, commuters, and motorists from tonight until tomorrow morning.
