A "dilawan/kakampink" got slammed for calling PRRD a credit grabber

A "dilawan/kakampink" got slammed for calling PRRD a credit grabber


Former DOTr Assec. Goddes Hope Libiran just had to school this “dilawan” when it insinuated that the former is credit grabbing for President Rodrigo Roa Duterte with respect to the Metro Manila Subway Project.

For purposes of clarity and public convenience we have quoted fully the Facebook post of Ms.Libiran below:


“Allow me to gently correct this. A subway for Metro Manila had been conceived and proposed as early as 1973. That was nearly five (5) decades ago.

For more than 40 years and six (6) administrations, all the Filipino people only had were proposals, studies, drawings, and presentations.

In June 2016, the project did not have any completed Feasibility Study. It did not have any NEDA Board approval. There was no financing, and no contract of any sort.


NOW, the project is investment approved and funded, with its partial operability civil works and trains contracted out.


Underground works have already started.


We also have the Philippine Railways Institute (PRI), which is essential to educate and improve the skills and efficieny of our railway personnel.


The funding support of the Government of Japan, through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) have likewise been arranged.


Right-of-way acquisition for the partial operability segment of the Subway is more than 90% complete.


Below is the actual timeline of the Metro Manila Subway Project under the Duterte Administration:


2016-2017: JICA Feasibility Study

Sep. 12, 2017: NEDA Board investment approval

Mar. 16, 2018: JICA Loan Agreement signing

Nov. 2018: Contract Signing for MMSP General Consultant

Feb. 2019: Contract Signing for Design-Build Contractor of Partial Operability Section

Dec. 2020: Contract Signing for MMSP trains

Feb. 5, 2021: Start of Arrival of Tunnel Boring Machines

June 12, 2022: Lowering of TBMs


In any case, as mentioned time and again, #BuildBuildBuild knows no political color.


What should always be upheld and considered in each project is not “Who started”… but “How will these benefit the people”, and “Who these projects are for”— These projects, after all, are FOR THE FILIPINO PEOPLE.”
