The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is eyeing to partially open the Sta. Monica-Lawton bridge this May.

Public Works and Highways Sec. Mark Villar said that the bridge, which is a major component of the BGC-Ortigas Road Link Project, is already completed. 

“With a few more needed finishing works, we’re very excited to partially open a new connectivity between Bonifacio Global City and Ortigas business districts to the public by the second quarter,” Villar said.

The four-lane bridge across Pasig River will connect Lawton Avenue in Makati City and Sta. Monica Street in Pasig City.

The 1.367-kilometer Bonifacio Global City-Ortigas Center Link Road Project is part of the Metro Manila Logistics Network. It is seen to cut travel time between the business districts of BGC and Ortigas from one hour to just 12 minutes.

The entire project is expected to improve accessibility between the cities of Pasig, Mandaluyong, Taguig and Makati and alleviate traffic congestion along EDSA and C-5. The project is targeted for full completion by September 2021.
