A Bittersweet Goodbye To The Corozal Ferries

The installation of the Laguna Seca and Pueblo Nuevo bridges in Corozal allows for easier access to the surrounding areas, providing a more efficient route for more commuters. While the opening of the Laguna Seca Bridge was received positively by residents, some noted that the feeling was bittersweet as they said goodbye to the ferry that has served them for many years. Project Engineer Michelan Gilharry told us what now happens to the ferry.

“So the area that the bridge is located is between the Chunox area of the Corozal district. The importance of it is because this acted as a bypass in the sense that you didn’t have to go around through the Progresso village to reach all the way to Sarteneja for the Corozal town area, it’s a shorter route. Yes, we know it’s a bit of a bittersweet moment in that sense with the ferry, but I’m sure that everybody is relieved in a sense that their time is being reduced with respect to the road. They have a free flow and that’s the intention of the project. What the ministry has intention with the ferry, I believe we will try to salvage it and reuse it in other lake locations that it may be needed. So that’s the intention. So we’re still putting it to use.”
