Repairs near completion on Port of Belize’s pier

Repairs to the wharf at Port of Belize Ltd. have been ongoing since an accident last Tuesday during which an incoming barge caused significant structural damages when it collided into the supporting columns below the pier.  New beams, we are told, were successfully installed on Monday and tonight finishing works are underway.  The pier should be partially operational by eight o’clock, once all the gratings, waterline and electrical lines have been restored.  Light trucks will only be allowed unto the quay in the interim, as it is expected that a team of engineers will conduct final assessments of the required PSI necessary on Wednesday morning.  In the interest of saving time a Seaboard vessel, complete with all necessary boarding processes, will be the only freighter allowed to dock tonight.  Operations on that vessel are scheduled to begin in the morning.  That decision was taken as a result of the Wednesday’s cruise ship schedule.
