Sugar Roads Coming

Last week, we showed you the poor condition of the Indian Church-San Carlos Road, one of the sugar roads used by farmers of sugar cane and other agricultural products to get their goods to the factory at Tower Hill or to market in the major towns and Belize City. Orange Walk South area representative Jose Mai told us he had been in touch with Minister of Works Rene Montero about allocations to upgrade the road, but there has been no action so far. We put the question to the Minister himself in Belmopan on Wednesday and he says the work is underway on this and other such roads.

“On an annual basis, we allocate funds to upgrade those sugar roads and this year is no less. We have allocated over half a million dollars to rehabilitate those sugar roads and the work is ongoing right now.”
