Crime prevention measures
Little to no attention is given to a crime prevention construction of the system. The materials used are generally of poor quality. Even before its opening, segments of the ceramic tiles, floors, and walls are showing signs of deterioration. The visibility of some of the Passenger Information Booths is obstructed by ill-positioned columns. The open construction of the elevated platforms is not built to brave the hazards of the annual typhoon season and requires constant cleaning. And to make matters worse, cleaning has met with the difficulty of the inaccessibility of some of the constructional parts.
