Philippines DoT: Almost All MRT3 Equipment Operational

The Philippines Department of Transportation (DoT) says all 34 elevators and 44 of 46 escalators serving Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT3) are operational, GMA News reported in June. Prior to work performed by contractor Sumitomo-Mitsubishi Heavy Industries-TES Philippines Inc., only 19 of 46 escalators and 27 of 34 elevators were operational. Despite the COVID-19 situation squeezing revenue, the DoT said it remains committed to delivering on promises. In June, MRT3 was awaiting delivery of spare parts to fix the remaining two escalators. MRT3 Director of Operations Michael Capati said the parts are coming from another country where production and delivery were impacted by the pandemic.
