Eugene,
I expect that only the major bridges have name. And we generally refer to these by their name and not the road reference. Unless you have particularities in Philippines.Example Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco bay.OpenStreetMap | ‪Golden Gate Bridge‬ (‪52477381‬)

Hi Ervin,

Option 1 is what I do.

Take note that if we have a way with highway=something and bridge=yes, then the object is primarily a highway/road and the bridge is only an aspect or property of the highway/road segment. Therefore, the name=* tag should be the name of the highway/road. And then put the name of the bridge on the bridge:name=* tag.

Besides, it will be very weird to have a long highway with unconnected names just because there are bridges along the highway.

The only time I would put the name of the bridge on the name=* tag is if the roads from both ends of the bridge have different names. For example, the bridge formerly called Del Pan in Manila: www.openstreetmap.org/way/4304674

Query regarding tagging bridges.
What is the appropriate way of tagging bridges?

Option1: Use the name of the road, and place the name of the bridge under bridge:name or the name of the tunnel under tunnel:name

Option2: Use the name of the bridge/tunnel, omit the road name

Thanks
