MANILA — President Bongbong R. Marcos included in his plans under his watch the construction of a floating bridge that will connect the provinces of Batangas and Mindoro.

The plan is included in PBBM’s 10 projects under Public-Private Partnership.

The floating bridge will have a 15-kilometer super bridge, with a pedestrian/bicycle lane that will connect Mindoro Island in the province of Batangas.

The bridge will cover an 8.5-km section from Mindoro Island to Verde Island and a 6.5-km length from Verde Island to Batangas over water with a depth of 10m to 300m.

Construction will commence once the necessary requirements are completed including the budget for the project proponents said.
