June 26 - Ministry of Works Addresses the Collapse of St Matthews Culvert-1

Ministry of Works clarifies situation at Mile 38

The Ministry of Works has clarified some misinformation that has been circulating on social media as it relates to the collapse of the culvert at St Matthews Village in the Cayo District.  According to the release, the culverts that were damaged were not recently replaced but have been in place for well over 40 years.

The Ministry of Works has clarified some misinformation that has been circulating on social media as it relates to the collapse of the culvert at St Matthews Village in the Cayo District.  According to the release, the culverts that were damaged were not recently replaced but have been in place for well over 40 years. Contrary to what was also reported, that section of the George Price Highway was not rehabilitated within the last 12 years. The Road Safety Project instead focused on widening of road shoulders, placement of road signs, safety barriers, bus lay-bys, road markings and resurfacing of a slippery portion of the road. Works contracts were signed with four local contractors, none of which was Imer Hernandez. The Ministry emphasized that the intense rains countrywide, worsened by the negative impacts of deforestation, contributed to the failure of the culvert.
