Lagos – The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) says it has to work on passengers coaches to ensure social distancing, if its Mass Transit Train Services (MTTS) must resume operation amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Lagos Railway District Manager, Mr Jerry Oche, made this disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos while speaking on possibility of the corporation resuming service.
According to him, the Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs) trains are under repairs in case the need arises for the corporation to begin MTTS amidst COVID-19.
NAN recalls that the NRC announced the suspension of the Lagos-Ogun MTTS on March 25 as a measure to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the state and the country.
