Construction sites for 2 new Pasig River bridges inspected

Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar inspected the construction sites of Pantaleon-Estrella Bridge in Makati City and Binondo-Intramuros Bridge in Manila City prior to groundbreaking next week. Both bridges, funded by China, will be crossing Pasig River.

“The two bridges are part of the Metro Manila Logistics Improvement Network, a traffic management plan composed of 12 new bridges crossing Pasig River, Marikina River, and Manggahan Floodway,” Scretary Villar said.

President Rodrigo Duterte is expected to lead the groundbreaking ceremony.

The Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge will connect Estrella Street in Makati City and Barangka Drive in Mandaluyong City.

On the other hand, the Binondo-Intramuros Bridge will be equipped with a four-lane carriageway and a three-meter sidewalk along both sides.
