Upgraded Roadways in Crooked Tree Village Bring Relief to Residents
Residents of Crooked Tree Village are now able to navigate their community hassle-free during the rainy season thanks to major upgrades to the village’s roadways. The community’s main road was traditionally vulnerable to flooding, and heavy rains commonly resulted in it being impassable by vehicular traffic. However, the Ministry of Infrastructure Development says the road has been constructed to international standards and has additional drainage features to mitigate flooding. The village’s Chairman, George Tillett, says the infrastructural improvement will also improve the local economy and various aspects of the villagers’ lives.
The road was built through funding from the government to the tune of 2.97 million Belize dollars.
