Work has commenced on the second phase of paving of the road on North Ambergris Caye which, when complete, will see a total of seven miles of paved road from the Boca del Rio Bridge northward.
Phase two of the work will constitute paving a three-mile stretch of road from Belizean Shores Resort up to Mile 6 by Portofino/Canary Coves and expected to be completed in three months. The first part of Phase Two includes the widening, elevating and leveling of the road that will run parallel to the electrical high-tension wire. This part of the phase (supplying and placing of hardcore material on the road) is being jointly funded by the San Pedro Town Council and the Government of Belize (GOB), but the cost of paving the road will be covered by the GOB.
The northern road is expected to be paved all the way to Blue Reef Resort and the San Pedro Town Council is just waiting on Belize Water Services to conclude their water expansion into the area for the Town Council to start and complete the project as soon as possible. The San Pedro Town Council is working on placing speed bumps to deter speeding on the newly paved stretch of road.
