The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has announced that the new six-lane Quirino Bridge II in Paco, Manila, also known as Concordia Bridge along Quirino Highway, is now fully open to motorists.

The P58-million reconstruction project began in 2018, and the structure’s southbound lanes were worked on from June to October 2018. The northbound lanes were only recently finished, as the DPWH halted reconstruction temporarily to make way for last year’s Christmas traffic rush.

“A six-lane Quirino Bridge II can now be used by motorists going in and out of southern part of Manila with the completion of three southbound lanes last October and now the three northbound lanes,” DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said. You can check out the DPWH’s full announcement below:

The 24-meter-long structure connects the Pasay City, Manila, and Makati City to Quezon City, Mandaluyong City, Pasig City, San Juan, and the rest of Metro Manila’s eastern side. The project’s completion will no doubt ease travel between these areas.
