MRT deploys 18 fast trains


The Metro Rail Transit-3 resumed normal operations on Friday as it deployed 18 fast trains during peak hours.
Department of Transportation Undersecretary for Rails Cesar Chavez, said the 18 trains run at 40 kilometer per hour (kph).

“We already removed the 20 kph, 15-train restriction this morning,” Chavez said in a text message to media.
All trains deployed have already passed the ultrasonic test, Chavez added.

Last Wednesday, the MRT-3 announced cutting the number of trains deployed from 20 to 15 because of a broken axle which led the management to inspect the whole train system.

Speed was also reduced from the usual 40 kph to 20 kph after the incident.
