DPWH still have remaining works to do

After three months of retrofitting, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has partially reopened the Ayala Bridge in Manila.

In a report by Manila Bulletin, only one lane each side of the Ayala Bridge will be passable and only to light vehicles.

DPWH Assistant Regional Director for the National Capital Region (NCR) Butch Canlas said that the agency's decision to have Ayala Bridge only partially open to traffic is due to the “remaining works” which includes the installation of dampers, post tensioning and painting on the structure.

Canlas added that the north and southbound lanes of the bridge has been opened to traffic around 5 a.m. today (June 15, 2015).
