MRT-3 speed limit down from 60kph to 40kph
After the unfortunate incident that injured 30 passengers, the MRT-3 Yellow Line management is now implementing a slower speed limit for the current rolling stocks.
The new speed limit is now down to 40 kph from the previous maximum speed of 60 kph. This new scheme is already implemented and and will gradually increase the travel time from both end stations by 7 to 10 minutes.
Aside from the longer travel time, the slower run of trains will cause longer queues. We also have to consider that MRT-3 now has lesser trains due to poor maintenance and frequent mishaps.
