AYALA BRIDGE TO FULLY OPEN JUNE 11

0

Ayala Bridge in San Miguel, Manila will be passable to vehicular traffic both directions by June 11, 2015. For public safety reasons and barring unforeseen circumstances, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has moved the partial re-opening of the bridge to light vehicles by mid-May to full opening on June 11, because of the complexity of the rehabilitation activities on the bridge’s superstructure and retrofitting works on its substructure. Public Works Secretary Rogelio Singson explained part of the works for the full rehabilitation of the four-lane steel truss-type Ayala Bridge to restore its structural integrity is the strengthening of existing abutments and pier foundations, and the construction of continuous slab design with additional four-feet slab on the bridge deck. The 139-lineal meter bridge with a total superstructure width of 25 meters will also be lifted by 70 centimeters for freeboard clearance of navigating vessels along Pasig River.
