The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has officially inaugurated the Ciudad de Victoria Project in Bulacan, a new thoroughfare that enables easier travel between the municipalities of Bocaue and Sta. Maria.

Opened to the public on October 2, the 5.14km road includes a new North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) interchange, a six-lane bypass road connecting MacArthur Highway and the Bocaue Municipal Hall, and a four-lane road connecting the Philippine Arena and the Bocaue-Sta. Maria Bypass Road.

The new thoroughfare provides an alternate route for motorists passing through from Governor F.Halili Road to the Bocaue-San Jose Road in Sta. Maria, or vice versa. According to the DPWH, this cuts travel time between the two municipalities from 45 minutes to just 10 minutes.
