Guimaras Governor Samuel Gumarin said the P24-billion Panay-Guimaras bridge will begin construction in 2019.

The Guimaras politiko said the pre-feasibility study of the P5.7-kilometer bridge will be finished within this year.

Gumarin said Barangay Taminla in Buenavista will be connected to the municipality of Leganes.

He also said the Panay-Guimaras bridge will be financed by a bank from China.

The bridge is one of the infrastructure projects being eyed under the Duterte administration’s “Build, Build, Build” program.
