While up to 16 trains were already running at the Metro Rail Transit 3 (MRT 3), commuters would have to wait a little longer before things get better at the country’s busiest train system, as Japanese experts projected that the rehabilitation work on it could last until mid-2020.

Inspection made by a team from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica) this week showed that it would take at least 26 months for rehab work on MRT 3 to be finished.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) said work would be done not only on trains but also on power supply, signaling system, security cameras, public address system, elevators and escalators and other facilities in MRT 3.

On Friday, the DOTr and Jica officials came closer to the approval of the loan to be granted by the Japanese government in May.
