The Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC), the private operator of the Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT-1), has resumed infrastructure and repair works on the LRT-1 Cavite Extension project after being given green light by government regulators.

In a statement on Tuesday, the LRMC said the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID), with support from the Department of Transportation (DOTr), has allowed the resumption of infrastructure works, with compliance to guidelines set by the IATF-EID to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

The resumption of works includes scheduled pit works (bridge and pipe inspection) which require temporary road closure of the innermost northbound lane along the Cavite Expressway (Cavitex) – Parañaque Bridge from May 7 (Thursday) at 7 a.m. to May 22 at 11:59 p.m.

It said the temporary road closure was previously announced and was rescheduled due to the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon.

“Design works, assembly works and select tasks at the precast yard area are also ongoing for the Cavite Extension Project — which would see the LRT-1 line reach Bacoor, Cavite,” the LRMC said.

It said the works would comply with guidelines set by the IATF-EID such as the reduction of personnel to a skeletal workforce, accommodation and transportation for workers, regular disinfection of workplaces, shuttles, and accommodations, regular health monitoring, physical distancing, and proper hygiene.

Better Service

Following preventive and corrective maintenance works, such as replacement of air-conditioning compressor units, the LRMC said the LRT-1 will be ready and will provide better service to commuters once it resumes operation after the enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila.

“Rest assured that we are taking every opportunity during this time to come back better for Filipino commuters. We are taking great efforts to make sure our workers remain safe and healthy by following the proper guidelines and precautions set by the government,” said LRMC Chief Operating Officer Enrico Benipayo.
