Senator Grace Poe believes officials responsible for the delay in the LRT-MRT common station project should be held accountable.

Poe noted that proposals for the station kept changing and for each revision, it had the approval of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA).

She added, the 8-year delay shows "bureaucratic inertia" at its worst.

"If it's found out those who entered agreement did not do due diligence and is maliciously putting at a disadvantage people and government, that person should be penalized. Let's move forward pero habulin natin lahat ng pumirma-pirma," she said.

Meanwhile, Poe said the increase in the cost of the project is justified. 

She also vowed to monitor the project to make sure everything the investors promised will be in the contract.
