Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar opened on Thursday, April 11, 2019 the newly-reconstructed northbound direction of Quirino Bridge II also known as Concordia Bridge along Quirino Highway, in Paco, Manila.
“A 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 Secretary Villar.
According to Secretary Villar, although reconstruction of northbound lanes was halted to make way for the Christmas rush, it was completed by DM Consunji, Inc. within a month from February until March 2019.
It can be recalled that Quirino Bridge II underneath the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 Project was temporarily closed for its P58 million reconstruction starting 2018. Its southbound was reconstructed from June to October 2018.
Quirino Bridge II is a 24-linear meter single-span road that forms part of Circumferential Road II connecting the cities of Manila, Pasay, Makati to the rest of central and eastern side of Metro Manila including the cities of Quezon, Mandaluyong, Pasig, San Juan and Marikina, and the province of Rizal.
