‘Tsunami of Infrastructure’ Washing over Belize

Rene Montero

There’s a tsunami sweeping the country – but not the kind from the sea. According to the Ministry of Works, it will be very busy in 2018 with road construction and other infrastructure works across Belize. Contracts are already signed for works on the George Price Highway from outside of Belmopan to the Iguana Creek junction, as we reported on Wednesday. Minister of Works Rene Montero told us that the OFID-funded Caracol Road Project, upgrade of the Coastal Road and Airport Link Road are all slated to begin in the course of 2018.

“We have the Caracol Road, the improvement of the Caracol Road; we have the improvement of the Coastal Road, and pretty soon we will be signing the [contract for] the airport linkage road. Then we have the replacement of the ferry at Baking Pot; we’ll put a bridge there. So it is really a tsunami, because when we are finished [with] all our major products, all our major highways will be upgraded to international standards.”


Other ongoing projects include the reconstruction of the Philip Goldson Highway between the Coney Drive roundabout and Haulover Bridge; Fabers’ Road; Placencia and Hopkins main streets and regular paving in all of the major towns.
