The San Juanico lighting, which was actually the initiative of the previous administration, has been criticized by some people, including the netizen below.
The netizen questioned the P81M spent on lighting the San Juanico Bridge while the country are facing three major problems like inflation, insurmountable debt and the pandemic. She asked if it was necessary when Filipinos families have a hard time putting food on the table. She said the government must focused on building good quality infrastructures like bridges to protect the lives of ordinary people. She shared the photo of the collapsed bridge in Pangasinan for emphasis on the point she’s trying to make.
Meanwhile, not all netizens disagree with the much-needed facelift of San Juanico.
Government prosecutor and a self-confessed anti-Dilawan influencer named Darwin Canete (Canete is pronounced with enye) took up cudgels on behalf of the government.
Canete said that the facelift of San Juanico Bridge is very much-deserved under the administration of PMarcos Jr.. The bridge he argued basically saved the devastated areas ravaged by Typhoon Haiyan because it was the singular lifeline to deliver life-saving provisions when ports and airports where unusable.

It is just right that San Juanico bridge, built by PMarcos Sr., gets a much-deserved facelift under the administration of PMarcos Jr.. It is that bridge that basically saved the devastated areas ravaged by Typhoon Hayan (Bagyong Yolanda), when the idiot god of Dilawans Noy practically abandoned the people there by being his usual self…an utter incompetent and coward. It was the singular lifeline to deliver life-saving provisions when ports and airports were unusable.
