Inanunsyo ni Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar noong Biyernes, Hunyo 5, na ‘all systems go’ na para sa pagbubukas ng Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge project sa Hunyo 12.
“As promised, Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City leading to Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City will be connected to Pasig City/Mandaluyong City by the Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge on the historic day our nation commemorates (its) 123rd Independence Day,” saad ni Villar sa isang pahayag.
Kasalukuyang nagsasagawa ng safety check at tinatapos ang ilang detalye para sa 440 metrong tulay upang siguruhing sumusunod ang kalidad nito sa safety standards bago ito buksan sa mga motorista.
Ang bagong tulay ay isang malaking parte ng Bonifacio Global City (BGC) – Ortigas Center Link Road Project na nagkakahalaga ng nasa tinatayang Php1.79 bilyon.
“With this bridge, Bonifacio Global City will be connected to Pasig City/Mandaluyong City by a travel time of 12 minutes,” saad ni Villar.
Ang BGC-Ortigas Center Link Road Project ay parte ng Epifanio de Los Santos Avenue Decongestion Program sa ilalim ng Build, Build, Build na naglalayong paluwagin ang daloy ng trapiko sa EDSA at iba pang pangunahing kalsada sa NCR.
