LRT-1 Completes Signaling System Upgrade


LRT-1 private operator Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) is set to deliver a faster and more reliable railway as it has successfully upgraded its signaling system to Alstom after a series of test runs and trial runs happened that concluded last January 30, 2022.

LRT-1 adopts advanced communication and modern technology to continuously control and monitor the operation of its trains. The upgrading of signaling system will allow to improve capacity and performance across the line, enabling more trains with better connections and greater reliability.

Moreover, the new signaling system along the existing line – Baclaran to Balintawak Station – will facilitate the testing, commissioning, and operation for revenue service of the 4th Generation train sets, which is targeted to start in mid-2022.

“We are happy to inform you that we have reached another milestone at LRMC as we have successfully migrated to the new Alstom signaling system. We have carefully planned these works to also improve the total traffic control system of LRT-1 while the operation was suspended on three (3) Sundays. We would like to thank our passengers for their understanding and patience as this initiative will surely result to a more modern and reliable system at LRT-1,” said Enrico R. Benipayo, LRMC Chief Operating Officer.
