Among the infrastructural works that have been occurring about the country, GOB has also promised to rehabilitate the Haulover Bridge, which connects Belize City to the Philip Goldson Highway. At the Sitting of the House of Representatives yesterday, Minister of Works, Rene Montero, explained that a contract has still not been signed for the reconstruction of the bridge. He stated that in 2016, a contract was signed with an Italian Structural specialist for the design, after which seven contractors submitted bids in order to pre-qualify. The consultancy firm, Politecnica, approved two companies, which were an Italian firm and a joint venture between a Belize and Mexico firm. Still, no contractor has been approved and the Ministry of waiting for the instruction of the Caribbean Development Bank.

Hon. Rene Montero, Minister of Works: “To date no contract has been signed for the construction of the new Haulover Bridge. The Ministry of Works is committed to follow the instructions of the Caribbean Development Bank and the Ministry of Finance to stay within it’s loan budget and will not sign any contract until approval is granted by the Caribbean Development Bank, OFID, CDF and the Ministry of Finance. Madam Speaker, as you can see from the above statement no contract has been signed for the construction of the Haulover Bridge.”

Back in 2017, GOB secured a loan from the OPEC Fund for International Development to the tune of US twelve million dollars.
