Several Rural Roads in Toledo to Undergo Rehabilitative Work

Lennox Bradley

Last week, the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing called a meeting to develop a strategy that it intends to implement in the repair of roads that have been impacted over the past few weeks by bad weather and heavy duty vehicles. Eleven of them were in the Toledo District that will be addressed in the coming weeks. Chief Engineer with the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing, Lennox Bradley went over the details today.

“Boom Creek Road is one and that’s seven point five miles. We have another one Conejo Road to Sunday Wood, that’s about three point one miles. Then we have from Sunday Wood to Crique Sarco, that’s six point one miles. Then we have from Sunday Wood to Corazon, which is another six point one miles. Then we have the link from Corazon to Otoxha and then that goes to Dolores. That’s a total of about seven point three miles. From Corazon to Otoxha would be about four point eight miles and from Otoxha to Dolores is another two point seven miles. Then we have the San Jose/Santa Cruz bi-pass. We built two bridges there over the past year and a half, and now it’s to try and improve the road between those two bridges, which will serve as a shortcut from San Jose to the paved road at San Antonio. It will significantly reduce the journey time for vehicles so we are expending resources in trying to upgrade that road now. We also have Santa Teresa to Mabil Ha and San Lucas and then Corazon. So it’s a lot of linkages that we are doing with these roads. Then we have the San Antonio/Crique Jute, that’s about nine point seven miles of road. Then the Laguna Road and then we have Aguacate Road and the Monkey River Road. Monkey River Road is eleven point seven miles. So most of these roads have a few miles and it will require a lot of financial resources to be expended to bring the entire length of these roads to a standard where we could refer to them as all-weather standard roads.”
