NAIA 3 pedestrian bridge open by next month

The pedestrian bridge directly connecting Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal III with Newport City is on track and due to open in April, according to Mark Villar, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) secretary.

Called RunWay Manila, the bridgeway is a 220-meter elevated bridge that stands 65 meters above Andrews avenue, and is being developed in cooperation with Travellers International Hotel Group’s Resorts World Manila.

 “Once completed, RunWay Manila will allow the average person to walk the distance between the airport and Newport City in approximately three minutes,” Villar said.

 “RunWay Manila is designed to accommodate up to 2,000 persons at any time, or up to 216,000 individuals per day.  The bridge is for the benefit and free use of the public,” he added.

 RunWay Manila will be an enclosed, air-conditioned bridge, with PWD-friendly facilities such as moving walkways and elevators. It will have a modern, eye-catching design, which may be an iconic landmark in the Pasay City skyline.

 “The Duterte administration is fully committed to reduce vehicular traffic congestion and increase mobility of pedestrians. More bicycles lanes, pedestrian and PWD friendly facilities will be constructed,” he added.
