Light Rail Manila Corp. (LRMC), the operator of Light Rail Transit Line 1, on Tuesday announced it will be suspending operations during the Holy Week.
In an advisory, LRMC said LRT1 operations will be temporarily suspended from March 31, Holy Wednesday, to April 4, Easter Sunday.
The company said the five-day suspension will allow personnel to conduct the railway system’s annual maintenance and to “facilitate necessary upgrades and continuous improvements.”
LRMC said the LRT1 will continue to be operational on March 29 and 30 following its regular service hours.
“The work we will need to do on our lines is to ensure that our train system continues to perform at its best. We are doing everything we can for a better and smoother commute on the LRT-1,” said Enrico Benipayo, LRMC chief operating officer. —Ted Cordero/KG, GMA News
