- BRIDGES are significant structures most especially for an archipelago like the PHILIPPINES.
Economic activities rely heavily on these bridges to transport products from one area to another. Bridges also make our life simple and easy. We can reach our destination by land, not by the more expensive travel by air or by more risky travel by water.
