The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) officially opened the Ciudad de Victoria Interchange Overpass Bridge and Bypass Road in Bocaue, Bulacan, which will serve as the main thoroughfare of delegates coming to and from the Philippine Arena for the 30th Southeast Asian Games.

According to DPWH Sec. Mark Villar, the newly opened interchange will help ease the traffic situation and volume of vehicles going into the Bocaue interchange, reducing the travel time from Sta. Maria, Bulacan from 50 minutes to 15 minutes through Ciudad de Victoria.

Villar said that the construction of the bypass road and bridge was fast-tracked since January 2019 in anticipation of the major sporting event in the country that will take place from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11.

“Efficient roadways and increased road capacity will do a great deal in the success of the opening rites for the Philippines hosting of biennial multi-sport event involving participants from the 11 countries of Southeast Asia,” Villar said.

The new interchange links the Manila North Road and Sta. Maria-Bocaue bypass road, which will also serve as an alternate route to the Governor F. Halili Road in Sta. Maria, Bulacan.

“With our anticipation on the volume of vehicles and traffic jams during the opening ceremony, the bypass road shall provide ease of transport to delegates who will be competing for the pride of their respective countries,” Villar said.

The P260-million infrastructure project is a four-lane road that has a 80.80-linear meter overpass bridge crossing North Luzon Expressway, with acceleration/deceleration lane as well as a 42.80 linear-meter concrete bridge and 757 linear-meter road.
