"The system upgrade and rehabilitation work will include the replacement of the auxiliary power supply and train control and monitoring system among many others,” said LRMC operations director Bobby San Jose.
“To be able to provide them a safe, reliable, efficient, and comfortable journey, we need to update and upgrade our signalling system," he added.
The maintenance and rehabilitation work is set to be completed by October 2020. —Joviland Rita/KG, GMA News
