BOCAUE, Bulacan — The 5.14-kilometer Ciudad De Victoria Interchange and Overpass Bridge and Bypass here is now open.
Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar said this will improve the movement of people and goods in the province of Bulacan.
“More than just being proud of the accomplishments of DPWH, it is always an honor to give good news especially to the people in the towns of Bocaue and Sta. Maria as the days of traffic congestion are finally over,” he furthered.
Implemented by DPWH Regional Office 3, the project will serve as an alternate road to the Governor F. Halili Road or Bocaue-San Jose Road in Sta. Maria town which has been notorious for traffic gridlock.
This has been a dilemma that has troubled commuters and impeded economic productivity in the province.
“The completion of the project is indeed the birth of hope as it is not just a band-aid remedy but a long-term solution to traffic woes that has long beset this area,” Villar added.
Travel time between Bocaue and Sta. Maria will be reduced from 45 minutes to 10 minutes.
The project fulfilled the promise of a more responsive public works as it will alleviate traffic situation or queuing of vehicles along Bocaue Entry/Exit Toll of the North Luzon Expressway.
