Bataan, Chinese firm to build PH’s longest bridge
Bataan Governor Albert Garcia and a representative from a government run-construction company from the People’s Republic of China have forged a memorandum of understanding for the construction of the country’s longest bridge.
Proponents from the China’s CSCEC Straight Construction and Development Company, Ltd. are eyeing the 20-kilometer Manila Bay Bridge project that will connect the town of Mariveles and Corregidor Island in Bataan and Naic in Cavite province.
Aside from encouraging investments in the two provinces from multinational developers, the bridge is also expected to help ease the traffic congestion in Metro Manila.
According to provincial officials, the Chinese firm is scheduled “to commence extensive testing, design, sea waves and tidal movements, foundation and engineering analysis of the projected route to determine the infrastructural integrity of the multi-billion dollar bridge project.”
