MRT-3 rehab on schedule – Tugade

account_balanceMetro Manila chat_bubble_outline0 Comments visibility

Transport Secretary Arthur Tugade on Wednesday said the Metro Rail Transit 3 rehabilitation project was moving as planned and on schedule.

“We are happy that the rails we procured arrived much earlier than scheduled. In fact, two months to three months ahead of schedule,” Tugade said.

He said other rail parts would start arriving in Manila in October 2019.

Rail replacement works will be conducted during non-operating hours at night starting November 2019, and for completion by February 2021, Tugade said.

Under the rehabilitation project, Sumitomo-Mitsubishi Heavy Industries-TES Philippines Inc. will undertake the overhaul of all 72 Light Rail Vehicles of the MRT-3, replace all mainline tracks, rehabilitate power and overhead catenary systems, upgrade the signalling system, communications, and CCTV systems, and repair all station escalators and elevators.

The Department of Transportation and the MRT-3 expect to increase the number of operating trains from 15 to 20 at peak hours, double the train operating speed from 30 kilometers per hour to 60 kilometers per hour, and reduce by half the headway, or time between trains from seven minutes to 10 minutes to just 3.5 minutes.

The project will be carried out for 43 months, with rehabilitation works slated for completion within the first 26 months.
