Villar shares update on BGC-Ortigas Center Link Project

Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar has posted in his Facebook page a photo update of the ongoing construction of Bonifacio Global City (BGC)-Ortigas Center Link Project.

“When the BGC Ortigas Link Bridge is completed, travel time from Taguig to Pasig will be reduced to only 12 minutes,” Secretary Villar said.

According to DPWH, the P1.6-billion project involves construction of the four (4) lane Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge across Pasig River connecting Lawton Avenue in Makati and Sta. Monica Street as well as rehabilitation and widening of Brixton to Fairlane Street in Pasig City.

The project also involves a viaduct extending the south end of the bridge to the entrance of BGC.

The link project is expected to be completed in 2021.
