Boracay Bridge Project

Project Description: 

A 1.2-km. limited-access bridge infrastructure between Boracay Island and the main island of Panay (Malay, Aklan). The bridge is not envisioned to cater vehicular through-traffic, so as not to congest the island, but will be provided with loading/unloading areas on both ends to process the movement of commuters, solid waste, goods and supplies.

Project Objectives: 

The project aims to facilitate:

  • Provision of a public transport access system;
  • Carriage of power, telecommunication, water supply and sewer utility lines; and
  • Transport of solid waste and cargo through authorized trucks.
Project Benefits: 
  • To manage environmental carrying capacity of the Boracay Island.
  • To open-up a new all-weather access for vehicles and pedestrians, thereby, encouraging people to consider alternative accommodations and activity centers at the mainland.
  • To free-up Boracay Island from pressures due to over-crowding and overuse of existing facilities, which ultimately produces adverse environmental impact.
