The Department of Public Works and Highways said Wednesday it is set to open the Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge Project which links the cities of Makati and Mandaluyong by July this year.
Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said that while the Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge Project is yet to be fully completed, final works are taking place on the bridge approaches.
Villar said the project was 89-percent completed, with an active work zone for crews doing finishing touches on bridge deck.
An important connectivity project across Pasig River, the old temporary steel truss bridge in Barangka, Mandaluyong was replaced in 2019 with a pre-stressed concrete rigid frame bridge (with V-shape piers) having a four-lane concrete deck slab 506.46 lineal meters in length.
DPWH Undersecretary Emil Sadain said that with the substructure and superstructure completed, activities would shift focus on the ancillary works, sidewalk for pedestrians and bikers, bridge lighting system, and construction of approach road in both Makati and Mandaluyong sides.
