Work on a Maundy Thursday

A small group of Hanjin workers were seen working on a Maundy Thursday. Kudos to Project Manager Kim Il Hwan for making this possible and for rushing the rehabilitation of the Manila Belt Line in time for the 100th anniversary this coming March 25, 2008. Photo above shows the team working and already reached the curve near the South Super Highway.

Lake Paco No More!

Hanjin workers started the rehabilitation of the rails beside the Paco Railroad Station last Tuesday March 4, 2008.

Photo above shows the fast progress of the rehabilitation work. The whole stretch above was done by the crew in only four days. The stagnant water was also drained by the same crew. Bye bye Lake Paco.

More crooked rails to be fixed by this small crew. The south bound rail is closed from 10 am to 4 pm. During this period, only the north bound rail is open for both north and south bound traffic.
