Belize City Mayor Darrel Bradley announced that the infrastructural work in Belize will continue into the next year with the entire length of Vernon Street and Youth for the Future Drive.

The works are to be completed by mid-February 2014, Bradley explained.

He said that by December, the Belize City Council had reached their goal of concreting 100 streets for the year 2013 and that they are currently finishing streets such as Baghdad Street, Park Avenue, Madam Liz Avenue, and Alexander Street.

Bradley also stated that through funding from the Ministry of Finance the Belize City Council would be able to do the area of Princess Margaret Drive in front of St. Johnís College, and the area in front of the Marion Jones Stadium.

Bradley also addressed the concerns of residents who say that a portion of Baymen Avenue has noticeably been left undone for an extended period of time now. He explained that the reason there has been delay in this area is because the Flood Mitigation Project is going to build a canal under that street.

He said that the Flood Mitigation Project, which is being done through the Ministry of Works, is responsible for the delay in finishing Baymen Avenue and Cinderella Plaza because they are awaiting a design from a German company.

Bradley also stated that this is much to Belize City Councilís dismay because they want to be able to complete their infrastructure projects. Once this is done, the Mayor said that Baymen Avenue would be completed and the Cinderella Plaza would also be concreted.

Bradley explained that the BCC ended up doing some of the streets that were supposed to be done by the Flood Mitigation Project because they had been taking so long, including Juliet Soberanis Street and Albert Hoy street. The Mayor said that if the other streets under the Flood Mitigation Project were not completed in a timely manner the BCC would have to find the funding to go ahead and do those streets.

100 Streets of Belize City will be Concreted by Mid-January

Belize city hall picture In that interview with our colleagues at KREM, the Mayor also updated on some infrastructure projects which he expects to be completed by the middle of this month. The Mayor said that over the Christmas holiday, City Hall has been working hard to finalize some of the existing projects to close off what they have been doing and to start a new wave of infrastructure works in 2014.

vlcsnap-2014-01-03-17h49m43s106Darrel Bradley- Mayor of Belize City

“We are doing some finalization; we are on Park Avenue right now; we are on Manam Lace, we are still on Juliet Soberanis; we are finishing up north front street; we are on water lane all the way onto the Vernon Street intersection with Youth for the Future Boulevard; all of those works are supposed to be finished within the second week in January. †That’s going to be finished off our listing of 100 streets. †

We are already in the throws of finalizing additional infrastructure projects. †I had mentioned before that the Ministry of Finance is going to be spending BZE$2.5M on a drainage project. †That has already started along Queen Street. †All of those works are being one by CISCO Construction and †we have identified 21 streets that have recently been concreted and they will use their labour intensive methods which is likely to have a significant impact in job creation and that project will straddle for cementinenting the Old Capitalabout four to five months. †

They have already started and are going to increased vigor as January 6th comes off. †I had also mentioned that we have had some immediate remedial works that we are doing”.

The internal audit of the Council, due to be released this month as well, will feature a cost listing of the streets completed and the amount paid Works are also nearly complete on the BTL Park which had been delayed by incessant rains in December.

2M for Drains in Belize City and 50 more Streets

Mayor of Belize City, Darrell Bradley, is continuing his aggressive infrastructure campaign in the city. Bradley told the Guardian Newspaper that a 1.8 million dollar contract has been signed with CISCO construction to build drains alongside 21 streets across the city. Work crews began to be deployed in work sites across the city on Monday January 13th.

As the work program rolls out, employment will be created for an additional 200 more young men in addition to those already employed in the street construction project. Mayor Bradley says that 1.8 million dollars had been scheduled for the drain works however that has been expanded to 2.5 million dollars. CISCO will be doing the work on 17 of the streets which will include the digging and concreting of the drains as well as placing of culverts and driveways to home entrances.

Bradley said that the drainage work will see great improvement in the flooding conditions on the streets in particular the streets on the Southside of the city.

The drainage program aside, Mayor Bradley also explained that the street concreting program will also continue where at least 30 more streets will be paved. Additionally 20 other streets will be upgraded to just before paving standard. In these works, residents of the city will see installation of drains, culverts, walkways and driveways. The work plan includes upgrading of streets in the Belama phase 2 and 3. Councilor in charge of the roadwork is Dean Samuels who has already completed work on Lord Rhaburn Street where it was elevated to about 6 to 10 inches from where it was before.

For the 30 additional streets that will be concreted, those works will commence as soon as BWSL completes its work. Mayor Bradley says that the funding for these streets are being identified. Some of those that will be concreted include Buttonwood Bay Boulevard, Wilson Street and Pikeís Crescent.

Owning Dean Street

Dean Street is Channel 7ís home base Ė so forgive us if we take a victory lap now that itís finally gotten paved. In the past few weeks, weíve gotten a chance to see the process up close Ė and come to know the guys who work on the street. Now that itís finished we asked them what they feel about it:

Juliet Soberanis Street from Albert Hoy Street to the Phillip Goldson International Highway will become a one- way street for the life of this contract.
