    I don't know.
    Both the Batinguel-Bagacay and Colon St Bridges are open now. I have driven over each of them.

    A few weeks ago it was announced that the Batinguel-Bagacay bridge was open. When I drove over it there was still a sign saying that it was closed but people were freely driving over the bridge.

    Went over it yesterday on my motorbike, the ramps are still dirt and you could probably take a car over that has a higher ground clearance...the bridge itself is nice though!

    as of this am; the ramps aren't completed but 4 wheeled vehicles can cross over.
    the colon st/hypermart bridge is 1 lane only for bikes.

    Think they may be sealing the ramps at the Batinguel-Bagacay bridge today when I tried it in my pajero around 11am, as they were turning every one around on the approach road...cars and motorbikes.
