Belmopan Bus Terminal Street officially opened
The Belmopan Bus Terminal Street was officially opened this morning. A brief ceremony was held to officially declare the street project open. The area has been an eye sore filled with potholes and a source of much controversy over parking but that has now changed. The project included the resurfacing of the street with hot mix, realignment of street side drains, and establishment of parking areas and pedestrian lanes among others.
Area Representative for Belmoopan, JOHN SALDIVAR
The work that is being done here today is an example of good Government. It is an example of good Governance. This project, I am being told, had a total project value of $278. The entire project allocation for Belmopan is well above 4 million dollars. It is money that is being well spent. And the evidence that we have here before us this morning is that the money is being well spent. It is very important that I emphasize this issue, because if we are to progress as a nation and as a people, we must reward good Government.
The project was implemented by the Project Implementation Unit of the BMDP under the umbrella of the Social Investment Fund. Meanwhile, street works valued at approximately $2.1 Million for Belmopan/Orange Walk and Corozal are currently being completed. Under this package, Nim Li Punit Street, Racoon Street and a portion of Hummingbird Drive will be paved in Belmopan.
