All reclamation projects in Manila Bay except one have been suspended, according to President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., who noted problems in their implementation.
“Nakasuspinde lahat… under review ang lahat ng reclamation. ‘Yung isa lang ang natuloy dahil na-review na. Maraming problema, marami kaming nakitang hindi masyadong maganda ang patakbo,” Marcos said in Bulacan on Monday.
(All are suspended. The reclamation projects are under review except one that has already been reviewed. We saw problems in the implementation.)
“But anyway, isa pang malaking problema na kailangan ayusin ‘yan. Kasi kung matuloy lahat ‘yan, maraming ilog mababara,” he added.
(Anyway, we need to fix that because if the projects push through, a lot of rivers will be affected.)
Marcos did not specify which projects are suspended, but lamented that the sea along Roxas Boulevard could disappear due to the reclamation projects.
