Prominent lawyer on PITX project: "It was President Duterte who was able to make a plan to a reality."

The Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX), a 4.5-hectare terminal housing including transportation bays, commercial spaces, and office buildings, was recently inaugurated by President Rodrigo Duterte.

And some people, gave the credit to former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III who allegedly started the project in the first place, and some supporters of President Duterte were not happy with it. 

A prominent lawyer, Trixie Cruz-Angeles made a post in the popular social media site, calling out a Dan Santos who was one of the people who thanked Aquino for the PITX, and not President Duterte.

In the post, Cruz-Angeles  laid out a series of “facts” pertaining to the creation of the transportation hub.


According to Cruz-Angeles, the project was indeed conceptualized during the administration of Aquino in 2014. The bidding for the project also started during the time. In the start of the year 2015, the bidding of the project was awarded to Megaworld.

Cruz-Angeles  went on to say that nothing happened in 2016. In 2017, when Duterte was already President, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) was only then able to find a location for the project and the construction began.

Now in November 2018, the project has been completed and open to the public.

Cruz-Angeles says that although it did start during the administration of Aquino, I was not seen into completion. In fact, they say, it was President Duterte who was able to make a plan to a reality.

"Susme itong kabilang parlor, kung maka Thank You Pnoy para sa PITEx kala mo naka research.

Eto ang facts:

1. Bidding began January 2014 --oo, 4 YEARS ago. Project name: SWITEx
2. Award to winning bidder Megaworld was made in January 2015.
3. Nothing in 2016.
4. In 2017 DoTr identified the location and began groundbreaking.
5. November 2018, now for inauguration. Project renamed to PITEx.

Take note na from 2014-2016 ang nagawa lang ni PNoy dito ay ipa bid-out, ni hindi pa na identify ang location. It took the Duterte Admin to get it off the drawing boards and build it.

Pag nag thank you kayo kay Pinoy, tanong nyo rin, bakit di nyo man lang napaabot sa groundbreaking ito. Bakit nagtagal?"
