  • 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.


    let me present to you the Top 10 Amazing Bridgs based on several references after a thorough research.

    1. Panguil Bay Bridge
    The project, with an original budget of P4.9 billion, is a 3.48-kilometer, two lane bridge that will connect the city of Tangub in Misamis Occidental to the town of Tubod, the capital of Lanao del Norte. It is intended to cut travel time between Tangub City and Tubod to seven minutes from the current 2.5 hours. It will also shorten trips from the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan to Tangub as well as the Zamboanga Peninsula Region.



    2. Panay-Guimaras-Negros Island Bridges
    The Iloilo–Guimaras–Negros–Cebu Link Bridge is a planned network of bridges in the Visayas in the Philippines connecting the islands of Panay, Guimaras, Negros, and Cebu.
