Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark A. Villar assured that despite the lockdown due to COVID-19 which hampered construction activities, the implementation of Binondo-Intramuros Bridge and Estrella- Pantaleon Bridge is right on schedule.

Secretary Villar said that based on a report of Undersecretary for Unified Project Management Office (UPMO) Operations and Technical Services Emil K. Sadain, we are seeing December 2020 completion of Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge Project while Binondo-Intramuros Bridge Project is aimed for opening by March 2021.
 
Undersecretary Sadain together with Project Director Virgilio C. Castillo of UPMO Roads Management Cluster 1 inspected the two (2) mega bridge projects crossing Pasig River.

Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge Project is now 56 percent completed while Binondo-Intramuros Bridge Project is now 36 percent completed, said Undersecretary Sadain.

Pouring of foundation for abutment is continuously undertaken on Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge.

Also ongoing is the piling of works for the foundation of Binondo-Intramuros Bridge, Binondo side downramp. By September, the steel bridging frame for the main bridge will be installed.

Although we have other urgent projects during this time of pandemic, we want to ensure everyone that these bridge projects are being rushed for completion to serve the public, said Undersecretary Sadain.

When completed, these two (2) bridges will augment the 30 existing ones across Pasig River, Marikina River and Manggahan Floodway and will ease traffic along EDSA and other major roads in Metro Manila.

Lamentillo said the Binondo-Intramuros Bridge is 27 percent complete while that of the Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge is at 47 percent. The total cost of the two bridges is P4.86 billion.

“DPWH does not have Chinese loans, what we have are China grants. Binondo-Intramuros and Estrella-Pantaleon are undertaken at no cost to the government,” Lamentillo said.

The P3.39-billion Binondo-Intramuros bridge is a 680-lineal meter Basket-Handle tied steel arch bridge. It connects Intramuros and Binondo with a viaduct structure over Estero de Binondo.
