To those commuters planning on joining the holiday rush this weekend, we suggest that you plan your trips because the LRT-1 will suspend operations this weekend.
LRT-1 Suspension of operations details
The Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) is announcing a temporary suspension of LRT-1 operations on 03 December (Saturday) and 04 December 2022 (Sunday) as it gears up for the reintegration of Roosevelt Station with its existing 19 operational stations from Baclaran to Balintawak.
During the weekend closure, LRMC will conduct readiness tests, trial runs, and exercises to check the integration of the Roosevelt area under the train lines’ brand-new Alstom signaling system.
“We advise our passengers to plan their trips ahead. We assure the public that the upcoming weekend closure with temporary inconvenience will result in long-term benefits for our commuters. In coordination with our private and government partners, it will be all hands on deck to ensure a safe and successful resumption of commercial operations for the full line,” LRMC Chief Operating Officer Rolando J. Paulino III said.
Once the results of operational exercises are confirmed to be acceptable, the target commencement of commercial operations from LRT-1 Baclaran Station until LRT-1 Roosevelt Station will be the next day, December 5, 2022.
