Ninety Belize City streets to be fixed
Ninety streets in Belize City will undergo much-needed repairs according to Belize City Mayor Bernard Wagner. The streets, located in various areas, are in deplorable condition and pose a risk to drivers traversing Belize City. The initiative is geared at improving the city’s road infrastructure and the flow of traffic. Mayor Wagner explained how the project will be undertaken.
Bernard Wagner, Mayor of Belize City: “We have a robust street plan, over 90 streets to be rehabilitated either by way of concreting, either by way of chip and seal or by the hard core material. I will share that with you all very shortly but it’s a robust plan. If you visit the Rocky Road area that has been concreted, Berkley Street has been concerted we are now starting the Church Street from the bridge to Glenn Street. We have Prince Street, we have Bishop Street all of those streets will be concreted. We have some in the Kings Park area as well we have ripped those streets they are ready for chip and seal it’s a whole bunch of streets we’ll be doing because we understand that quality of life is important. People want to walk on a decent street, motorists want to drive on a decent street so we know that has been some measure of our Achilles’ heel and so we want to address those issues.”
