Pamela Scott Discusses Other Works in Belmopan

There’s another roundabout under construction near the Western Regional Hospital. There’s also work being done on paths on either side of the Ring Road. The concept seemed to be for a jogging path and a bicycle path but the complaint has been the construction which seems to leave much to be desired.

“Rest assured that they are not left unnoticed. As one of our international consultants says – to make an omelet you have to crack the egg. You’ll have difficulties and challenges as we start digging up the road to fix the road to actually reach to the standard that we are looking at. Yes we have the jogging path and the bike path and they are not completed. So we are doing compaction, they are doing the different layers that are necessary – the base and sub-base for that area. They are making sure the drainage is in place and it handles the volume of water necessary. Belmopan is developing and so we need to ensure that whatever water is being channeled around the Ring Road or in other areas around that urban setting model – that we are able to manage it and it doesn’t affect the road system that is being put in place. So presently we might be having some challenges in terms of it seems to be not being worked on, or it seems that we have a lot of potholes, but we are working on it and we do have our scope of works in place with clear target dates to be able to accomplish the tasks. In this case too we expected to be completed by the latter part of this year, but we are hoping that hopefully for Christmas we do have the road completed. We’ll ask the public to please bear with us a little more as we sort out all the details and ensure that the proper infrastructure is in place adhering to all the standards that are being developed.”
