According to Secretary Mark Villar, “When the Bataan Cavite Interlink Bridge is completed, travel time from Bataan to Cavite will be reduced from five hours to only 20 to 30 minutes.”
The 32.15-kilometer inter-island bridge will start from Barangay Alas-asin in Mariveles, Bataan, cross Manila Bay and terminate in Barangay Timalan, Naic, Cavite. When completed, the project will reduce travel time from Bataan to Cavite from five hours to only 20 to 30 minutes.
The detailed engineering design of the project will be carried out within a 15 month period with the support of Asian Development Bank.
It will include the construction of two navigation bridges — the North Channel Bridge and the South Channel Bridge and six viaducts.
