The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) plans to open the Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge, which is a key component of the BGC-Ortigas Road Link Project, to the public in May 2021.

The Sta Monica-Lawton Bridge, the superstructure that will link Lawton Avenue in Makati City and Sta. Monica Street in Pasig City across the Pasig River, is already completed, according to DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar.

Added Villar, “With a few more needed finishing works, we’re very excited to partially open a new connectivity between Bonifacio Global City and Ortigas business districts to the public by the second quarter.”  

Emil K. Sadain, DPWH Undersecretary for Unified Project Management Office (UPMO) Operations, said in his report to Secretary Villar that aside from the finishing touches at the Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge, whose centre main span was constructed of segmental box girders using the balanced cantilever building technique, Brixton Street (corner Reliance Street) to Fairlane Street is being rehabilitated and widened by UPMO Roads Management Cluster 1 with a total length of 476.577 meters, a 159.629-meter approach road at abutment 1, and a 125 meter up and down the ramp between piers 8 and 13.

Undersecretary Sadain, UPMO Roads Management Cluster 1 (UPMO-RMC 1) Project Director Virgilio C. Castillo, Project Managers Benjamin A. Bautista and Ricarte S. Maalac, and Engr. Reynaldo S.L. Perez of Persan Construction inspected the four-lane two-way bridge.


The building of the Lawton Avenue – Global City Viaduct, which will run from Lawton Avenue to the entrance of BGC, is also part of the project with the ongoing preparation for bored piling at BGC and road widening on 8th Avenue.

The Metro Manila Logistics Network's 1.367-kilometre Bonifacio Global City-Ortigas Center Link Road Project will reduce the one-hour driving between the BGC and Ortigas business districts to 12 minutes.

The whole project, which will increase accessibility between the cities of Pasig, Mandaluyong, Taguig, and Makati while also alleviating traffic congestion on EDSA and C-5, is set to be completed by September 2021.
