The Duterte administration’s BUILD BUILD BUILD Team today conducted the ground breaking ceremony for BGC-Ortigas Center Link project. ” Soon, travel time from BGC to Ortigas will be reduced to 12 minutes,” the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said.
This project will construct Sta. Monica To Lawton Bridge and Lawton Avenue to Global City Viaduct, crossing Pasig River.
Public Works Secretary Mark Villar told ANC yesterday, July 18 that construction time for a bridge will take approximately 2 years.
He also said that the government is planning to construct 12 bridges that will cross Pasig River as part of efforts to decongest existing road networks in Metro Manila until 2022.
“We have approximately 28 now, when we finish we will have 40,” Villar said. “We will be building a minimum of 12 bridges across the Pasig River.”
“We also want to focus on people who walk, who use bikes, for the environment and also to service people, we want to just make a more conducive environment,” Villar noted.
Two of the bridges will be funded and built by China. These are the state-of-the-art Binondo-Intramuros Bridge in Manila and Estrella-Pantelon Bridge in Makati/Mandaluyong.
