Lopez said Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade has opted not to pressure its main proponent, San Miguel Corp. president Ramon Ang, about the project so as to allow the latter to deal with some personal matters.

He did not elaborate but in January, Ang disputed reports that his son Jomar has died and asked people to stop spreading false news about him.
