BGC-Ortigas Road Link Project now complete

The Bonifacio Global City (BGC)-Ortigas Center Road Link Project has finally been completed.

In a statement, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) noted that the opening of the 1.48-kilometer road project is expected to cut travel time between Taguig and Pasig to only 12 minutes.

Leading the inauguration rites for the P1.79-billion project were President Rodrigo Duterte, DPWH Secretary Mark Villar, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea, Senator Christopher Lawrence Go, Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez, Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano and Pasig City Representative Roman Romulo.

Complementing the four-lane Kalayaan Bridge section that connects Sta. Monica in Pasig and Lawton Avenue in Makati, the latest viaduct structure gives motorists a direct and faster link between the commercial districts of Ortigas and BGC. 

“With the opening of the entire BGC-Ortigas Road Link Project, we are seeing significant traffic decongestion, or as much as 20 percent traffic volume from nearby Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) and C-5 Road sections,” Villar said.

 Started in October 2017, the BGC-Ortigas Road Link Project also covers the rehabilitation and widening of the 362-meter Brixton Street (corner Reliance Street) to Fairlane Street.

“Through the efforts of our field workers and engineers who worked 24/7, rain or shine, we were able to finish the 2-lane viaduct component of the project this September. This segment now connects Lawton Avenue to the entrance of BGC at 8th Avenue through up and down ramps,” Villar noted. 

The project is part of a bigger EDSA Decongestion Program which is aimed to bring the major thoroughfare back to its original capacity of 288,000 cars per day
