Silk Painter,

Have you any update on the airstrip at Caye Caulker? Do you think it will be open for the holidays?

I just received this information from a friend who met with the company repairing airstrip yesterday morning. Equipment supposed to be here on Thursday (Oct 9). Contract allows for 14 weeks however, GOB has asked that it be completed in 8 weeks. One contractor for entire project as opposed to last info which was Cisco would pave.

Testing for sand compaction -- will need appx 4,000 cb yds of sand -- if Caye Caulker sand tests out, will dredge and stockpile at end of airstrip. If not will have to haul sand from mainland which will delay the project.

So -- keep your fingers crossed that repairs start right away -- will keep you updated.

I'm tired tonight, so I hope this will make sense. I just arrived back on Caye Caulker from the BTIA annual general meeting in Belize City.
Soon after the closing of the airstrip, the GOB Dept. of Works came on island with heavy equipment and tore up the old paving, crushed it and made it into roads back in the Puesta Del Sol government housing project. They graded and widened the airstrip, and there it sat for a couple of months, unpaved, waiting for the funds to be released by Central government. The funds have just been released and the paving contracted out now. Now they will start the concrete portion of the project. Although the airstrip was closed, private planes have been landing and taking off. The airstrip is in better condition right now, even without concrete than before the project began.

Well, they are working on it, there are giant mounds of sand on the eastern side of the airstrip and lots of big equipment moving around.
