32 ELEVATORS, 13 ESCALATORS UNVEILED BY LRTA IN PHILIPPINES

Thirty-two elevators and 13 escalators were unveiled on October 19 as part of a multimillion-U.S. dollar overhaul of 11 Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) stations from Santolan to Recto in Manila, the Philippines,The Manila Times reports. Fourteen additional escalators are to be bid in November and expected to be operational in 2018, according to LRTA Administrator Reynaldo Berroya, who, according to GMA News Online, observed the sudden stopping of one of the new escalators during the inauguration. The contractor said something may have triggered the unit’s safety mechanism, or that “a cat may have been stuck under it.”
