Panay-Guimaras-Negros bridge pre-feasibility study completed!

 After China had pulled out of the project, Korean Eximbank stepped in, and showed interest to fund for the proposed megastructure that would benefit people of the Western Visayas.







On February 13, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) chief announced on his Facebook post that they had completed the prefeasibility study and now on the final stages of the feasibility study.





"We have already completed the prefeasibility study for the 32.47 km Panay Guimaras Negros Bridge. We are now on the final stages of the feasibility study," Mrrk Villar said.

If everything goes well, the bridge will link three major island provinces in the Western Visayas such as the Panay, Guimaras, and Negros. 







During a finance hearing last October, Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon asks for the commitment of Public Works Secretary Mark Villar to start the construction of the 32-kilometer Panay-Guimaras-Negros Bridge, which he said, has been an unrealized dream for the people of Region 6.  





If push through, the bridge will give a lot of economic activity to the three provinces. Currently, a Roll-on/roll-off ships are used in the three provinces for transporting their products since there are no other land route that directly connect them.
