“The one from San Ignacio to Benque is there; the rehabilitation of the George price is under us. The one from Ladyville to Biscayne is under us. Another example is the roaring creek area where we insisted that they put in the pedestrian walkways. We are about to do an adjustment to the approach to the roaring creek bridge because if you are aware when they had the flood last time, the little piece that approaches the bridge gets flooded. So we will be dealing with that part too. In San Estevan, we will be paving the village itself and we are working on the bidding process to get the main road paved. So San Estevan will see the main road from orange Walk town to San Estevan paved, but before that, they will see the inside of the village, the main artery of the village paved. I think it is very important; these villages have not seen that kind of attention for donkey’s years. We are graders of rural roads, we build bridges. We are going to do a hammock bridge right now ina the Cayo West area. We build houses and we inspire people.”
