The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) announced on Monday the start of the Magsaysay Bridge project that will involve building a four-lane span to replace the existing bridge at the Freeport's main gate, as well as improving security facilities, and upgrading road network, drainage structures and signage in the immediate area.


The new 4-lane bridge is expected to be done by first quarter of 2021. The SBMA's Chairman and Administrator Wilma T. Eisma said that the project contractor has recently started work for a temporary pedestrian bridge that will be built before the existing bridge is demolished.
