DPWH Secretary Mark Villar at Napindan Bridge II

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced the opening of two more lanes on the Napindan Bridge II in Taguig City. The opening was held with the presence of Secretary Mark Villar, along with DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade, and BCDA President Vince Dizon.

The said two lanes, according to DPWH Secretary Villar, are expected to reduce travel time for those coming from Bicutan, going to Taytay and vice versa. As a review, the 152-lineal meter prestressed girder Napindan Bridge II is part of the Laguna Lake Highway Project, Taguig section. The construction includes concrete board piles for piers, slabs, railings, retaining walls, thermoplastic pavement markings, and stone masonry approaches.

“Before its construction, there were only two (2) lanes available for road travel. The Laguna Lake Highway will now be enhanced by converting its two-lane sections into a homogenous four-lane highway with two road lanes available for each direction.”

As DPWH continuously aims to reduce traffic congestion on major roads like EDSA, we could expect more road widening and construction projects to divert traffic by providing alternate routes. Earlier this month, the agency announced the completion of the Cavite-Laguna Expressway by 2020 to cut travel time between CAVITEX and SLEX by half.
