The Senate public services committee threw yesterday its full support to the ambitious project of the Duterte administration to construct a 25-kilometer underground mass transportation system.
Sen. Grace Poe, committee chairperson, sees the program as a way to helping ease traffic in the already congested metropolis but also propel economic growth.
“We have to invest now, build now, but not without exercising caution. Having a reliable public transportation system, especially railway, will not only spell public convenience but also contribute to economic growth,” she said.
Through this, President Duterte would leave a lasting legacy to the Filipino people, particularly Metro Manila commuters, she added. (Mario B. Casayuran)
