Last Thursday, July 29, 2021, President Rodrigo Duterte formally opened the P1.46billion peso Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge that will connect two major cities of the National Capital Region: Mandaluyong and Makati. This bride is part of the Duterte Administration's infrastructure project Build, Build, Build.
This bridge was funded by a grant of the People's Republic of China together with the Binondo-Intramuros Bridge which is expected to be finished by December 2021. It is expected that this new bridge will allow vehicles to travel between the two cities in just five minutes. This is addition to the improved mobility, connectivity, and enhance resilience against natural disasters. Sec. Villar said that the bridge is said to accommodate about 50,000 vehicles daily which is one of the solutions that the administration is looking at as an answer to the issue of traffic congestion.
Despite the slow construction and implementation brought about by the pandemic, the DPWH UPMO Roads Management Cluster 1 Team headed by Project Director Benjamin Bautista, former Project Director Virgilio Castillo and Project Manager Melchor Kabiling and with the contractor China Road and Bridge Corporation have worked double time. This new four (4)-lane bridge with added aesthetic value of V-shaped piers is made of pre-stressed concrete rigid frame with corrugated steel webs, replacing the temporary two-lane box truss bridge dismantled in 2019. Compared to the old bridge made of temporary modular steel components, the new bridge has two (2) lanes on each direction and with wider sidewalk component.
Together with Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Huang Xillian, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark A. Villar, Senator Christopher Bong Go, and Secretary Salvador Medialdea, the president inaugurated the said the bridge. Present in the event were also Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade, Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez, MMDA Chairman Benhur Abalos, DPWH Undersecretary Emil K. Sadain, and Mandaluyong City Mayor Carmelita Abalos.Add a comment
