Target makumpleto ng DPWH ang P1.46-bilyong Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge na magdurugtong sa Estrella Street, Makati at Barangka Drive, Mandaluyong itong Q2 2021.
Sa kasalukuyan, nasa 86 porsiyento na ang nakukumpleto sa tulay, na 12 porsiyentong advanced sa target.
Kaya ng bagong 506-linear meter at 21.65 meter width bridge na magpadaan ng 50,000 sasakyan araw-araw at bawasan ang travel time sa pagitan ng Makati at Mandaluyong sa 12 minuto.
May apat na lanes din ang tulay at 3-meter na magkabilang sidewalks.
Sa kabilang banda, nagpalabas na rin ng revised guidelines si DPWH Secretary Mark Villar para sa implementasyon ng infrastructure projects na papayagang magpatuloy sa kalagitnaan ng pandemya.
Sa katunayan, ininspeksyon ang tulay nina Undersecretary for Unified Project Management Office (UPMO) Operations Emil Sadain at UPMO Roads Management Cluster 1 Project Manager Benjamin Bautista ngayong Abril 5 upang siguruhin ang pagsunod ng contractors sa health protocols para sa tuluy-tuloy na trabaho matapos ang Lenten break.
