Get ready for MRT weekend shutdowns

Do you use the MRT trains everyday till weekends?

The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) recently approved a weekend shutdown of the Metro Rail Transit-3 (MRT-3) line.

 MRT General Manager Roman Buenafe said the weekend shutdown proposal is to give way for the track's rail replacements.

He added that the MRT will be closed from Saturday 9 pm and will open 12 noon on Sunday.

The shutdown will be enough to replace about 150 meters of rail.

However, Buenafe did not say when the weekend shutdown will start and how long it will last.  He explained that they are still waiting for 150 kits of "thermit" welding kits. The "thermits" are not available in the country and has to be shipped from abroad.

Only recently, the rails had been causing sudden stops and this slows down the speed of trains.
