Comprehensive National Transportation Master Plan Completed

According to Prime Minister Dean Barrow, “the ever-expanding and constantly upgrading national road network is literally paving the way for accelerated growth.” Many more major road works are expected to materialize through international funding. While that is good news, those who depend on the public transport system, have to do so grudgingly because it is a nightmare. But a Comprehensive National Transportation Master Plan and the national bus terminal is currently in the process of being realized, according to the Prime Minister.

“Also, with the completion of the Comprehensive National Transportation Master Plan, which sets out the blueprint for short, medium and long-term land, maritime and aviation investments, the business community can expect much needed improvements in this sector.  Public transportation reform will include legislative updates and institutional strengthening of the Ministry of Transport as well as improved road safety regulations.  And a significant complementary input to this is the national vehicle registration and driver’s licensing system which is already being rolled out.GOB has also committed to financing, either alone or in a public/private partnership, a national bus terminal at the Lake Independence Special Development Zone in Belize City. The legislation to operationalize the zone is already drafted and goes to Cabinet and the House imminently.”
