The Department of Public Works and Highways said Thursday the construction of the 3.17-kilometer Panguil Bay Bridge that will connect the City of Tangub in Misamis Occidental to the municipality of Tubod in Lanao del Norte is now 61-percent complete.

Public Works Secretary Manuel Bonoan said the government would not only ensure continuity of major infrastructure projects started by the previous administration, but also aimed to to fast-track their completion to get the Philippines back on the road to economic recovery.

DPWH senior undersecretary Emil Sadain said the bridge costing P7.37 billion and financed by a loan agreement with the Korean Export Import Bank is a milestone highlighting how the design and construction of a modern bridge with sea offshore excavation depth of up to more than 50 meters has evolved.

The construction blitz started following the full completion of all 54 bored piling works to allow the start of construction of the 36 abutment and pier column.
