Sucat-Alabang Viaduct

Manila, Philippines

In order to relieve traffic congestion in the metropolitan area around the Philippine capital Manila a new highway called Metro Manila Skyway is being constructed. BAUER Foundations Philippines, Inc. has been involved in a number of construction phases and, since August 2019, has been working on expansion of the highway between the cities of Sucat and Alabang in southern Metro Manila. As part of the order, Bauer is installing 188 bored piles with diameters of 2,800 mm and a maximum depth of 30 m. In addition, 226 ductile piles with a length of 16 m will be installed using the PGF system (Pressurized Grouted Full Displacement System). A special challenge in this project is that works need to be carried out without interrupting traffic on a busy road.
