Cinderella Traffic Lights are Back!

There is good news tonight for drivers in Belize City. The famous traffic lights at the busy intersection of Douglas Jones Street and Freetown Road, near Cinderella Plaza, are back in operation after several months of being down due to issues with the lighting system. The Belize City Council obtained the necessary equipment earlier this week and the lights were reported in operation as of earlier today. These lights are the only working ones in Belize City as the others, at the corner of Central American Boulevard and Vernon Street, remain out. The only other pair of lights are in Orange Walk Town along the Queen Victoria Avenue. Back in February, Mayor Darrell Bradley was at the point of exasperation when asked about when the lights would be fixed, stating that Belize will have to stop spending money on lights as they are a bad idea; he prefers roundabouts as they are easier to maintain.
