Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) President and CEO Arnel Paciano D. Casanova (right) leads the removal of cone barriers that marks completion of the rehabilitation works, and the official opening of the SCTEX Pasig-Potrero Bridge to motorists. The P71.6 million long-term and permanent rehabilitation works of the Pasig-Potrero Bridge will provide a more convenient and safer travel to motorists. It will be recalled that strong river current initiated by the heavy downpour during the height of Typhoon Maring in 2013 set off a massive erosion of up to 10 hectares of land from the banks of the Pasig-Potrero river that caused the damage to a segment of the toll road that serves as an approach to the bridge. The BCDA and the DPWH built a bailey bridge as a remedial measure to make the Clark-Porac segment of the toll road accessible to motorists while the Pasig-Potrero Bridge was being rehabilitated.
