The bridge that will link Bonifacio Global City (BGC) and Ortigas Center will be completed by 2021, an official of the Department of Public Works and Highways said.

During an inspection on Friday, Public Works and Highways Sec. Mark Villar said that the BGC-Ortigas Center Road link will reduce travel time between the two areas to 11 minutes once it is complete. 

“This will serve as an alternate corridor from EDSA and C-5 along the section of Guadalupe Bridge and Bagong Ilog Bridge, eventually allowing more economic opportunities for our “kababayans”, Villar said.

The P1.6-billion project involves the construction of the four-lane Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge across Pasig River that will connect Lawton Avenue in Makati and Sta. Monica Street, as well as the rehabilitation and widening of Brixton to Fairlane Street in Pasig City.

The project also involves the construction of the 565-meter Lawton Avenue to BGC viaduct that will traverse Lawton Avenue towards the entrance of BGC.

“With an accomplishment of 45 percent, we are fast tracking the completion of this high-impact project linking Pasig ang Taguig to ease traffic woes of motorists and commuters in Pasig, Mandaluyong, Taguig, and Makati,” Villar added.
