The new Southern Highway built by Johnny Woods and his Cisco Construction Belizean company has put Belize into the forefront of road construction in Belize big time. That southern highway is a dream! Built properly to standards and quality; comparable to any highway, two lane, county line road built in the USA states of North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee of the USA.
Not in the past sixty years has any foreign contractor EVER built such a quality product as found in this Southern Highway project built by the Belizean construction company of Cisco Construction Ltd. In decades past, most foreign loans, or grants by foreign governments were given on the proviso that their own foreign construction companies had to come to Belize and do the building. The claim being; nobody existed in Belize that could do the work. Well no more! That argument is flat!
In fact, quality construction work in concrete buildings, hydro dams, road building, fabricating metal buildings, etc. All this is now done in Belize on levels of pricing and quality better than imported firms can do, by local companies. No more, should we see foreign firms coming into Belize to do any kind of construction work. If the requirement of the GRANT should insist that a local foreign firm of the donating country get the job, it would be simple for them to sub-contract to a local Belizean company and get the job done, cheaper and better than they can do it themselves. Just supervise the scheduling and pocket their local foreign government profit and let that be the end of it.
Yup! Johnny Woods and Cisco Construction Ltd. has done Belize proud. Congratulations old man!
