Motorists that frequent Quirino Bridge II will be glad to know that it has been fully reopened to the public. That's right, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) recently announced that the six-lane Quirino Bridge II can now be used once more by all types of vehicles.
“The 6-lane Quirino Bridge II can now be used by motorists going in and out of southern part of Manila with the completion of three (3) southbound lanes last October and now the three (3) northbound lanes,” said Mark Villar, DPWH Secretary.
Temporarily closed last year to be reconstructed for Php 58 million, the key road link sits underneath the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 project. First to be completed was its southbound lanes which was rebuilt from June to October 2018.
As for the northbound lanes, Villar said that reconstruction was halted last December 2018 to make way for the Christmas rush. It was fully completed by DM Consunji, Inc. within a month from February until March 2019.
In review, Quirino Bridge II (also called Concordia Bridge) is a 24-linear meter, single span road that connects the cities of Manila, Pasay, Makati, and the rest of central and eastern Metro Manila. It also serves as a key roadway for motorists coming to and from Mandaluyong, Quezon City, Pasig, San Juan, Marikina and the province of Rizal.
