    9-year-old bridge already needs replacement — DPWH | Inquirer News


    The 30-month closure of a bridge connecting the cities of Makati and Mandaluyong, which is set to start this month, can affect about 40,000 vehicles daily, diverting them to inner streets and aggravating traffic conditions.

    In a hearing held on Wednesday by the House committee on Metro Manila development, Director Virgilio Castillo of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) explained why Estrella-Pantaleon Bridge already needed replacement even though it was opened only nine years ago.

    Castillo gave Sept. 20 as the tentative date of the closure, but said it could still be moved as the DPWH was still in talks with the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) to come up with better traffic management plans addressing the expected gridlock.

    is it being closed, because it is now weaker and has to be strengthened?
    or is it being closed, to make it wider?

    according don sa news.. weak na din daw.. so totally tatanggalin and papalitan nang bago.. gagawing 4 lanes.. so dapat baguhin din nila yung streets connecting the bridge.. dapat 4 lanes na din.. otherwise magiging bottleneck na naman yan.. 2 lanes ang one way nang bridge tapos single lane lang pag baba..

    This is such a hassle for everyone using this bridge and the Makati-Mandaluyong one.

    Dapat maglaan muna sila ng alternative route na matino bagong ipasara yan.

    i can see it now.
    magla-laan ng alternative temporary bridge.
    then, after the new bridge opens...
    "let's not close down the alternative bridge. let's keep it in service."
    heh heh.

    Maybe they are "widening" the bridge to get rid of the squatters that lived between the bridge and Acqua Residences...

    if that is the intent, then it will backfire.
    they are simply re-locating them to a new, enlarged apartment, under the bridge's anchorage.
    heh heh.
