MANILA, Philippines - Experts from Hong Kong's train system MTR are set to arrive today to inspect the MRT-3.

They will help Philippine authorities assess what should be done to improve the rail system, which has been hit by several technical problems.

This includes an accident that left more than 30 people injured after a coach went off course two weeks ago.

A communication glitch also occurred over the weekend, stalling operations yet again.

"Ang primary consideration natin is safety ng mga pasahero. And kami, on our part, every time there's a balance between convenience tsaka safety, lagi naming pinipili ang safety para sa lahat," MRT spokesperson Hernando Cabrera said. - ANC
