 The Binondo-Intramuros bridge intersecting Pasig river is ready to open between April 5 to 9. 

DPWH Undersecretary Emil Sadain said, it is expected that around 30,000 vehicles will use the bridge once it will open to the motorists. The Binondo Intramuros bridge has  two-way four-lane with separate sidewalk for pedestrians and joggers. 

"Construction crews will continue to work this week on the bridge for the final finishing touches on the carriageway, ramps, and other components but it could open to traffic sooner before the 2022 Holy Week begins on April 10," said Undersecretary Sadain. 

The state of the art engineering marvel will be the new fascinating icon that is expected to attract tourists.

The basket handle-tied design of steel arch main bridge is touted to be the new symbol of time honored friendship between the Government of the Philippines and the People's Republic of China.

Binondo Intramuros Bridge together with the Estrella Pantaleon Bridge which was completed in 2021, are two (2) flagship infrastructure projects funded by a grant from China in support of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte administration’s Build Build Build Program. 

These bridges are part of Metro Manila Logistics Network Program to reduce the congestion on major highways in the metropolis by constructing new bridges across Pasig and Marikina Rivers and the Manggahan Floodway in order to achieve seamless travel and connectivity of Filipinos.

The instruction given to contractor China Road and Bridge Corporation was to finish the most important activities and prepare for possible project inauguration by no less than President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, added Undersecretary Sadain. 

In Binondo, among the things left to be done is the access ramp at Plaza del Conde Street to San Fernando Street but an access ramp is already available at Rentas Street to Juan Luna Street.
