A pedestrian link bridge directly connecting Terminal 3 with Newport City across is getting closer to completion by the first half of 2017.
Instead of travel time that can reach over an hour just to get out of NAIA Terminal 3, in about three minutes, the average person can walk the distance between the airport and Newport City, from where safe options are available to reach various parts of the metropolis.
The link bridge will be enclosed and air-conditioned, with pedestrian-friendly facilities such as walkalators and elevators, making it an iconic tourism development.
The bridge is part of the efforts to ease the traffic situation in the area. By just crossing the street, you can reach Newport City where there are other transportation alternatives such as the Citylink buses and car-sharing services.
Furthermore, there’s also the possibility of enjoying the comforts of nearby hotels as soon as you arrive from the airport instead of spending hours on the road while nursing a jet lag.
Given its clear public benefit and necessity, the project has received the full support and endorsement of relevant government and airport authorities.
