The Cement and Asphalt Revolution Continues in Old Capital

But the mayor had positive news about the streets…If you are living in the south side divisions of Port Loyola, Lake I and Collet; you can expect to see some street works happening in your area. Mayor Bradley told us that cementing of streets will continue but these will be reinforced with some tar work. And as those street upgrades take place, CitCo has also been working on manholes around the city.

Darrell Bradley, Belize City Mayor

“We are still continuing to build cement streets. We are still continuing to upgrade roads. Recently, the City Council acquired a tar truck from the flood mitigation project. We had a symbolic asphalting of a street, so that we are starting to utilize those equipment in particular areas of Belize City. I did a tour with Deputy Mayor Dean Samuels, where we identified a series of streets in the Port Loyola, Lake Independence and Collet Area of Belize City which will be shortly be upgraded to what we have called ‘pre-paid’ status. Several of the streets that we have already upgraded, we are going to use this tar truck to asphalt these streets so that they last a lot longer. The project in relation to the man-hole covers that is ongoing. We have had difficulties with the contractor – substantial difficulties. But there’s a significant number of man-hole covers that have been upgraded.”
