Charlie Tampil, Chief of the Construction Section and Project Engineer for Mangonbangon Bridge II, shared, "We are delighted to announce the PARTIAL OPENING of the bridge to the public. This project has been a collaborative effort, and we are confident that it will provide enhanced accessibility and convenience to the residents of Tacloban City. We remain committed to completing the remaining construction as soon as possible to fully realize the benefits of this infrastructure."

He extended his appreciation to the DPWH and construction team for their dedication and hard work. —iTacloban (Source: DPWH-8)
