New Cable Bridge being constructed at Branch Mouth

The Government has decided to replace the old pedestrian crossing at Branch Mouth in the Cayo District, with a new cable bridge. In a statement, GOB said that the new bridge has a greater loading capacity and has been elevated to accommodate a higher flood level. The Ministry of Works entered into an agreement with the contractor, Luis Avella, using the limited tender procedure for construction of the new bridge. Works are currently underway as the contractor is installing all runners on the decking platform, aligning the cable suspenders and decking platform, and installing a chain-link railing to enhance protection for all users. It is expected that the Branch Mouth Cable Bridge will be completed in the next seven working days.
