Consistent with the mandate of the President Rodrigo Duterte to fast-track project, Department of Public Work Secretary Mark Villar announced that two additional lanes along the Napindan Bridge 2 can soon be accessed by road users.
“We currently on the last stretch of the construction. Final inspection as to the structural integrity, safety-ness of the bridge has already commenced,” Villar said.
“This coming July, 2 more lanes are set to open the bridge connecting the boundaries of Taguig and Pateros,” he added.
Villar noted that the opening of the additional lanes is part of the installment for the Laguna Lake Highway Project which is projected to reduce the travel time from Taytay to Bicutan.
“The rehabilitation of Napindan Bridge 2 also includes the construction of a 3-meter bike lane to ensure accessibility to more individuals,” he said.
“Increasing the mobility of individuals entails not only the construction of roads and highways. It is high time that pedestrian infrastructure is seamlessly integrated to our road network,” added Villar.
The completion of the two additional lanes is expected to decongest major thoroughfares like C5 and EDSA.
