Rains synonymous with flood for Kendall crossing

The recent rains over the country have wreaked havoc for people who rely on the Kendall crossing. Since the weekend the crossing has been closed due to flooding in the south. Today the National Emergency Management Organization discussed the situation and while the floods have been a problem, the projection for the next few days looks promising, as the Ministry of Works’ Chief Engineer, Lennox Bradley tells us.

Lennox Bradley, Chief Engineer, Ministry of Works

“This weather pattern seems to be weakening somewhat and moving slightly away from Belize to the point where it would only affect the extreme south. We’ll have some rains between now and Friday but by Friday in that area we feel that it’s supposed to start clear up.  The only experience that motorists will experience there is the delay until the water recedes noh.”

The Mullins River Bridge at mile twenty seven on the Southern Highway is also under water so motorists are advised to not use the Coastal Road.

    Lennox when will we have a new Bridge built?. Back in the days, Swasey Bridge was the same way and traffic has been good & steady since a new Bridge was built. Da whe di gohwan man?. Back dehn Mr. Andrewin from Public Works Department mi do wa good job wid fi we roads and Bridges, even though back dehn “No moni nehva deh an no country noh mi di donate no moni to GOB like now”. Please talk to Hon. Hulse and mek ih beg di Prime Minista fi some ah di Petroleum moni fi build wa New Bridge noh man?. Without di rain fi dem truck di help bruck up di raod and di Bridge dem anyway. Dehn again, Minista Hulse might move wa lee bit faster along with Minister Boots, because Minista Hulse Bally (Ih Booncoon da Dangriga) have ih business round deh, and ih haftu pass deh, just remind him bout dat noh man?. Most ah di traffic down da side help fi we local economy. My fellow Belizeans, “The Forgotten South” are being treated like this since Colonial Days, but gues what, the citizens of Belize should refer to this Scripture Reading: (Ecclesiastes 5:8-9). Da no joke mi bredda, we stay di get di shaft down south, trust mi.
