In late April of this year the San Pedro Town Council began works on upgrading the roads in North Ambergris Caye with the assistance of the Belize Ministry of Works. The Ministry provided the Town Council with a grader and truck to work on improving the street conditions of the island. A total of 80 linear yards of white mal (dust from crushed rock – clay like texture) was placed from Grand Caribe to Indigo Resort.
Four months after the upgrading of the roads and finalization of paper work, the project which is being funded by Belize’s Ministry of Works and Ministry of Tourism, Culture & Civil Aviation has finally commenced. Pavement will be laid from the Sir Barry Bowen Bridge up to the Belizean Shores Area. Construction is being carried out by RGB Construction and is estimated to be completed in an approximately three to four months.
