Aquino wants to see a refurbished NAIA-1 before stepping down
MANILA, Philippines—President Benigno Aquino III wants the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 to be fully refurbished before he steps down from the presidency in 2016.
Aquino spoke at the gathering of the Bulong Pulungan in Pasay City where he said he was hopeful that other key infrastructure projects would also be completed by 2016.
“In terms of concrete manifestations of the same, perhaps NAIA Terminal, I think , the refurbishing will be finished by that time,” said Aquino as he noted the Filipino people today are getting more involved in matters affecting the nation instead of being apathetic.
The President added that he wants the North Luzon and South Luzon expressways connected and the Tarlac to La Union Expressway to be treated in the same manner.
Aquino said he is also eyeing to extend the light rail system to Cavite.
