The Bataan–Cavite Interlink Bridge is a proposed bridge that will connect the provinces of Bataan and Cavite via Manila Bay.
The bridge (also known as the Manila Bay Bridge) will be a four-lane bridge and 32.15 kilometres in length, and it would be the longest bridge in Southeast Asia.
The bridge alignment is from Timalan Balsahan in Naic, Cavite to Alas-Asin in Mariveles, Bataan, via Corregidor Island. Work is expected to begin in late 2023.
