President Rodrigo Duterte’s plan to link the entire Philippines archipelago with bridges and tunnel is not only a dream, but it can be turned into reality. Once implemented and completed, it will be the greatest engineering achievements of his administration.

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnels in the United States

Linking major islands using bridges and tunnels is not a fantasy anymore, since it’s been done in another country like the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnels in the United States, linking Dover, Delaware to Norfolk, Virginia with a distance over water is about 17 miles, plus 2 trips through tunnels that are a mile long.

This bridge and tunnel design can also be constructed in the Philippines to connect the major islands of Luzon, the Visayas, Mindanao and also Palawan.
