MRT-3 trains go slow

Trains of the Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) are travelling at a slower pace today.

From the regular speed of 40 kilometers per hour (kph), the trains are moving slower at 30 kph.

Transportation Assistant Secretary Cesar Chavez says, this will mean longer travel time for passengers.

Chavez explains, the adjustment is being done to minimize the vibrations and lateral movements when the trains are passing through old railways.

The trains will go slow especially along some portions such as from the area of Quezon Avenue to Cubao, from Guadalupe to Buendia and from Buendia to Taft Avenue and vice versa.
