“After completing its 1,000-kilometer commissioning test during non-operating hours, the third Dalian train set hit the tracks of Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) earlier today, 23 January 2019, for its 150 hours of validation testing,” DOTr said.

“The said train set will serve MRT-3 commuters from 6AM to 9PM, starting today until 01 February 2019,” it added.

It can be remembered that MRT-3 deployed the first train set built by Chinese maker Dalian last October 27, 2018 to 21 November 2018, while the second set was deployed on December 11-23, 2018.
