TRTC: Repair Works Underway for Exit 5 of MRT SYS Memorial Hall Station

Regarding public concern over cracks on the side of Exit 5 stairway entrance at MRT Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) pointed out that it has arranged for repairs to be carried out starting late night on April 23.

The repairs will take approximately 10 days.

TRTC noted that workers assigned the repair task will wear the agency’s maintenance vests for identity purposes when conducting repair.

According to TRTC, preliminary inspections by the Department of Rapid Transits Systems indicate that the fractures are possibly the results of the atmospheric environment or the recent earthquake. The damages do not have any impact on operations.

As for the structural integrity of MRT Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall Station and the underground train tunnels, TRTC remarked that initial reading of surveillance data indicated no abnormalities.
