Another long-awaited Metro Manila bridge project is due for completion soon. According to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) the Binondo-Intramuros Bridge is next in line for an opening, and motorists may be able to use it as early as April 2022.

The agency bared that the Binondo-Intramuros Bridge is now 92% complete and is scheduled for an opening sometime during Holy Week. This update comes after the DPWH’s announcement several months ago that the new piece of infrastructure would be usable in the first quarter of this year.

The DPWH added that by March 2022, the bridge’s arch will undergo final retouching and asphalt will begin to be laid on the structure’s concrete slab.

Once completed, the P3.39-billion bridge is expected to serve up to 30,000 vehicles a day. It will also supposedly help preserve the Jones, Delpan, and MacArthur Bridges by serving as an alternate route from those structures. Are you looking forward to this opening?
