(SPOT.ph) Commuters are advised to plan their trips accordingly as LRT-1 operations will be suspended on December 3 and 4 to preparation for the reopening of the Roosevelt Station in Quezon City, its management said.
There will be no LRT-1 trips in the coming weekend as operator Light Rail Manila Corp. conducts readiness tests, trial runs and exercises to reintegrate Roosevelt Station into the train line's operational stations.
Plan your trips ahead, LRT-1 says
Roosevelt Station was closed on September 5 to make way for the construction of the North Triangle Common Station, a transportation hub along EDSA and North Avenue that will connect LRT-1 with MRT-3, MRT-7 and the Metro Manila Subway.
“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," said LRMC Chief Operating Officer Rolando J. Paulino III.
"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,” he added.
Once the reintegration process is completed, LRT-1 will resume its operations from Baclaran to Roosevelt Stations on December 5.
"We assure the public that once reopening is confirmed, LRMC is ready to serve our LRT-1 passengers adding Roosevelt Station to our existing operational stations," Paulino said.
