The Runway Manila, a pedestrian bridge connecting the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 (NAIA-3) and the Newport City in Pasay City, will be completed and opened in the first quarter next year, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced yesterday.
In a statement, DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said that the project, once completed, will allow the average person to walk the distance between the airport and Newport City in less than 10 minutes.
Designed to accommodate up to to 216,000 individuals per day, Runway Manila is a 220-meter elevated bridge that stands 17.8 meters above Andrews avenue. It will be enclosed and air-conditioned with PWD-friendly facilities and a modern, eye-catching architecture.
The DPWH have partnered with Travellers International Hotel Group, a unit of Megaworld, in developing the runway.
“Runway Manila is part of our commitment to champion Philippine tourism and to contribute in nation building,” said Travellers International Hotel Group Inc. President and CEO Kingson Sian.
