Mindoro-Batangas Super Bridge to be Built if Poe Elected -Chiz


S bridge that will connect islands and can give Filipino people more opportunity is awaiting to be established.

Vice-presidential frontrunner Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero said he and his presidential running mate Sen. Grace Poe will prioritize the construction of the “super bridge” project that would connect Mindoro Island to the province of Batangas, should they get elected in May.

“We will prioritize the construction of that bridge so residents and tourists would no longer need to take the RORO (roll-on, roll off). Our goal is to finance and bring that project to fruition,” Escudero said during his recent visit to Calapan City, the capital of Oriental Mindoro province.

The Port of Calapan, which serves as the gateway of the entire Mindoro Island, is around one hour and 20 minutes away from Batangas port via fast ferry service and two-and-a-half to three-and-a-half hours via RORO.

Escudero said the “super bridge” will ease the travel from the main island of Luzon to the provinces of Oriental Mindoro and Occidental Mindoro.
The veteran lawmaker also cited the strong potential returns to the economy of the project.

“The completion of that bridge will lead to more tourist arrivals and bring many development opportunities for the people of the two provinces,” he said.

Last year, the provincial governments of Batangas and Oriental Mindoro received a proposal for the construction of a 15-kilometer-long bridge that would surpass the length of the 2.15-km San Juanico Bridge that connects Samar and Leyte provinces.

It would take five years to build the bridge with pedestrian and bicycle lanes at an estimated cost of P18 billion.

Based on the plan, the bridge will cover the 8.5-km distance between Mindoro and Verde Island and another 6.5-km stretch that will run between Verde Island and Batangas over a 10- to 300-meter water depth.

The “super bridge” was envisioned as the first floating bridge in Asia, with a high ship passage resting on pontoons that could withstand cyclones of up to 350 kilometers per hour winds.
