Thinking about going for a long ride up north once lockdown restrictions ease up? Luckily for motorists taking the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), rehabilitation work for the bridges in Meycauayan and Bigaa has been completed ahead of schedule.
“Despite some restrictions caused by the ongoing pandemic and the challenges brought by inclement weather conditions and doing works in live traffic, we’re happy to announce that works in Meycauayan and Bigaa bridges are now completed ahead of schedule to provide motorists with safer and smoother travel,” said J. Luigi L. Bautista, president and general manager of NLEX Corporation.
Main rehabilitation procedures include strengthening the two bridges and improving serviceability by replacing the girders and slabs. Such measures have been necessary for a good while, especially considering that both structures were built in the 1960s.
Both the 45-meter Meycauayan bridge and 64-meter Bigaa bridge serve as essential links for motorists seeking to travel between Metro Manila and the north. With the amount of use and traffic that these thoroughfares see on a daily basis, the repair work has been a long time coming.
Now that all lanes are open once more, riders, drivers, and those delivering goods and supplies during the pandemic no longer need to deal with the bottlenecks caused by road work.
