ANTIPOLO CITY — In anticipation of the transfer of the Rizal provincial government to its new capitol building in this city, national and attached agencies occupying offices in the capitol complex in Pasig City have already relocated elsewhere.
Except for the Land Transportation Office (LTO) regional office and the Laguna Lake Development Authority’s (LLDA) laboratory facility, all other national and attached government agencies have moved to their new offices.
The LTO regional office is reportedly set to transfer to Barangay Rosario in Pasig City.
Incidentally, Rizal is host to two LTO registration offices — one in Cainta and another in Binangonan, Rizal.
The LLDA is reportedly eyeing to transfer its laboratory facility to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) compound in Quezon City.
The LLDA administrative office had earlier moved out of the capitol compound to the new office inside the Club Manila East compound in Taytay, Rizal.
All the 33 judges of the various Metro Manila regional trial courts in the capitol complex have been absorbed by their respective cities, which include Pasig, Marikina, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Taguig, and Pateros.
The courts, which used to occupy the Hall of Justice building behind the main capitol structure, moved out as early as last year.
The Register of Deeds (RD) has moved to its new office in Binangonan, Rizal, while the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) first engineering district office has moved to its new office in the municipal compound in Binangonan.
DPWH 2nd engineering district is occupying a portion of the DPWH-owned parcel on Manggahan Floodway in Pasig City. (Danny Junco)
