Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark A. Villar announced that come second quarter of 2021, motorists will be able to utilize the widened and modernized Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge that links Estrella Street in Makati City and Barangka Drive in Mandaluyong City.


Villar said the construction of Estrella Pantaleon Bridge is now more than 72 percent complete and is 8 percent ahead of schedule.


Designed to decongest Guadalupe Bridge along EDSA, the main bridge of Estrella Pantaleon is a 146.0-meter prestressed concrete girder bridge with V-shaped piers, while the approach bridge/viaduct is a 66.0-meter prestressed continuous girder bridge.


Already completed are all bridge substructure works on abutments of both sides; piers on Makati approach as well as main bridge and the V-shaped piers for the main bridge.


Also completed are concrete pouring works for four segments of prestressed concrete girder in Mandaluyong side and concrete pouring works for the first lift of box girder for the approach bridge in Makati.


Villar said that DPWH UPMO is doing all necessary measures of conducting a thorough inspection from time to time for resolution of technical issues, ensuring quality standards and safety and to keep up with the pandemic-related challenges and backlog.


The DPWH is now working on the remaining civil works covering formworks and rebar installation in two segments of prestressed concrete girder in Mandaluyong side and two more segments in Makati side as well as for the second lift of box girder for the approach bridge in Makati side in order to complete the bridge.


Once fully completed, the motoring public can expect traffic relief by providing additional fix link and alternative route crossing the Pasig River using a new two-way four-lane bridge with a total length of 506.46 meters and width of 21.65 meters, having 3-meter sidewalks on both sides.
