Engineers Say Mayor Bradley Has Cinderella Plaza All Wrong

Darrell Bradley

While the site inspectors assess the success of the project works, the Belize City Council has come under fire for sections which have been left in a terrible condition – namely Cinderella Plaza, Kelly Street and Baymen Avenue. Mayor Darrell Bradley has maintained that those works will be a part of the Flood Mitigation Project. As recently as a few days ago, Bradley poked blame at the project contractor. But was the Mayor being disingenuous? According to Project Manager Rolando Chan, that certainly appears to be the case.

“Well it is not completed its going to be completed when the street is finished in terms of the section of Baymen Avenue and in terms of Cinderella Plaza. We have a councilor who sits on the steering committee for the Flood Mitigation Project; he is involved in the discussions and so forth. I am confident and we are pushing them in relation to completing that as soon as possible because it is a major woe for residents. The Cinderella Plaza is a major access way and we need that area to be repaired and fixed. I can’t speak in relation to the specific timeline but I can say that it is going to be done.”

“I would clarify that. The situation is that our activity or our project only entails Douglas Jones Canal. Cinderella Plaza, Kelly Street and Baymen Avenue – the section from Calle Al Mar towards Kelly – that is the responsibility of the Belize City Council – I know in the news I heard Mayor Bradley mentioning that it is our responsibility. I just want to clarify that it’s the responsibility of the Belize City Council. It doesn’t have anything to do with our project. We have a Memorandum of Understanding where the agreement is only to do the Canal from Freetown towards the sea.”

“So just to clarify – this area – you all are done here?”

“Yes we are completed, we are finished. We finished this project in the first week of August and the Unit sent a specific letter to the Mayor that the City Council can start completing their activity which is doing anything in relation to their infrastructure with Cinderella, Kelly and Baymen. So it’s in their hands now.”
