According to a report by CNN Philippines, Runway Manila, the country’s first pedestrian bridge with walkalators will be open to the public starting Friday at 5:00 in the morning.
The 220-meter pedestrian bridge will link NAIA Terminal 3 and Newport City, and will cut down travel time between both structures down to 10 minutes.
“The facility is beautifully designed, it looks modern and spacious. It is fully air conditioned and equipped with walkalators and elevators for passengers’ convenience,” said CNN Philippines’ Correspondent, Makoi Popioco.
Runway Manila can accommodate a maximum of 2,000 persons.
The Runway Manila project was originally for completion by mid-2017, but had to be fast-tracked with the upcoming ASEAN summit.
