The proposed Batangas-Mindoro Bridge Project is an exciting infrastructure project that will connect the Batangas and Mindoro islands. The bridge will provide people and businesses in both locations with faster and more comfortable transport options. In this article, we will discuss the most recent project updates as well as travel options between the two provinces.
Batangas-Mindoro Bridge Project Update
The Mindoro-Batangas Super Bridge also referred to as the Batangas-Mindoro Bridge Project, is a floating bridge that will span 15 kilometers from Batangas City to Mindoro Island. According to recent sources, the project is still in the design stages, with construction set to begin soon. The bridge is expected to open in 2025, benefiting thousands of people and visitors who travel between the two provinces on a regular basis.
SMC’s team has contracted with a local firm to do a bathymetric examination in order to assess water depth. The bridge will go from Batangas’ Barangay Ilijan to Puerto Galera’s Barangay Sinandigan through Verde Island.
Travel Options between Batangas and Mindoro
For the time being, the RoRo (Roll-on/Roll-off) ferry service between Batangas and Mindoro is the most popular mode of transportation. The ferry service between Batangas and Mindoro Island operates regularly, with multiple trips per day. Depending on the weather and water conditions, the journey takes roughly 2-3 hours. Because the route from Batangas Port to Mindoro changes on a daily basis, passengers should contact the ferry company for the most up-to-date information.
Is Mindoro Part of Batangas?
No. Mindoro Island is not a province of Batangas. It is an island province southwest of Luzon that is divided into two provinces: Oriental Mindoro and Occidental Mindoro.
