In a statement released in August 2020, DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said that the BGC-Ortigas Center Road Link is among the projects aimed at decongesting EDSA and C5 Road. This makes it a project that many buyers of The Velaris Residences will surely appreciate.

The 1.367-kilometer BGC-Ortigas Link bridge includes the 440-meter Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge, the 362-meter rehabilitation and widening of Brixton (corner Reliance Street) to Fairlane Street, and the 565-meter Lawton Avenue – Global City Viaduct which will traverse Lawton Avenue to the entrance of BGC.

A project that started in 2017, the main bridge is expected to be completed within the month of December 2020, and miscellaneous works will be completed in 2021.
