Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 13) — The Light Rail Manila Corporation announced on Tuesday the suspension of LRT-1 operations for the next two weekends to resume maintenance works.

“The shutdown on April 17 – 18 and April 24 – 25, 2021 (Saturday & Sunday) will allow LRMC to complete the remaining maintenance and rehabilitation works started during the Holy Week,” LRMC said in a statement.

Activities include replacement of overhead catenary wires and preparations for the commercial use of new train sets to be rolled out in the fourth quarter of this year, it added.

LRMC also said public utility buses, which will ply Route 17 from Monumento to EDSA via Rizal Avenue /Taft Avenue, will be deployed during the temporary weekend shutdown.
