The two (2) way one (1) lane viaduct project of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) at Lawton Avenue, Makati City to Bonifacio Global City’s (BGC) 8th Avenue in Taguig City is expected to be accessible to motoring public beginning October 1, 2021.
“We’re excited that the Lawton Avenue to Global City viaduct section of the Bonifacio Global City (BGC)-Ortigas Center Road Link Project will potentially be delivered to completion this September 30”, said Secretary Mark A. Villar.
Only few more days, we are closer to our goal of cutting travel time between Bonifacio Global City and Ortigas Center to only 12 minutes, added Secretary Villar.
Based on an inspection report to Secretary Villar by Undersecretary for Unified Project Management Office (UPMO) Operations Emil K. Sadain, the approach 3 at 8th Avenue has been concrete paved with parapet wall on both sides following the accelerated construction works by joint venture contractor Persan Construction Inc. and Sino Road and Bridge Group Co. Ltd. just in time for the planned inauguration this end of of the month.
With the substantial completion of median barrier, asphalt overlay of the viaduct ramp is anticipated by this weekend to be followed by the pavement marking and light post installation, added Undersecretary Sadain.
The 565-meter Lawton Avenue – Global City Viaduct is an important connection of the already accessible Kalayaan Bridge formerly known as Sta Monica – Lawton Bridge linking Pasig City and Makati City across Pasig River.
It is part of the entire 1.481-kilometer alignment of Bonifacio Global City (BGC)-Ortigas Center Road Link Project which is a DPWH traffic time savings solution between the commercial and business hubs of Ortigas Center, Pasig City and BGC Taguig City.
The project was implemented by the DPWH UPMO Roads Management Cluster 1 headed by Project Director Benjamin A. Bautista and under construction supervision of Project Manager Ricarte Mañalac and Project Engineer Emmanuel Regodon with DCCD Partners & Co. in joint venture with Pertconsult International as technical consultant.
Construction of BGC to Ortigas Center Road Link Project also covers the much needed optimal improvement for the 362-meter Brixton Street (corner Reliance Street) to Fairlane Street at Pasig/Mandaluyong side to cater the increased number of road users.
