Construction of the Binondo-Intramuros Bridge in Manila continues during the pandemic and the structure will be ready before the year ends, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) secretary Mark Villar said on Thursday, February 4.
The 600-meter bridge, which is now 50% complete, utilizes an arch-type design and will connect two of Manila’s oldest and most popular districts. It is part of the EDSA decongestion program, and is made possible through a grant from China.
“By September this year, matatapos po itong bridge,” Villar said.
Another component in the decongestion program—the Estrella-Pantaleon bridge—will be ready come April or May, Villar said. The bridge is seen to connect Mandaluyong and Makati.
