BOCAUE, BULACAN — A new North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) interchange leading to the Iglesia ni Cristo’s Philippine Arena is being rushed for the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games on Nov. 30, according to the Department of Public Works and Highways.

The P635-million interchange project was launched in a ground breaking ceremony Friday (Feb. 1).

The four-lane interchange would connect the INC’s Ciudad De Victoria property along the NLEX northbound lane to the Manila North Road (MacArthur Highway) via the Bocaue municipal building road in Barangay (village) Igulot and the Sta. Maria-Bocaue Bypass Road, said Arvin Sangalang, project engineer of the DPWH Central Luzon office.

The Arena will host some of the competitions slated at the last quarter of 2019, said Glicerio Santos IV, chief operating officer of Maligaya Development Corp. which manages the Arena.
