from a friend back home after three months away...

The runway at the Phillip Goldson International Airport is l o n g!! V E R Y L O N G!! It seems that the resurfacing of the runway extension is now complete (or very close to it) because as far as the eyes could see there was runway. The AA flight landed, stopped about midway, and then taxied to the gate. I though it was impressive.

Another improvement I noted is that the baggage conveyor belt is now at least ten times the size it used to be, snaking around and around the baggage claim area, and set up much better for much easier baggage handling. In fact, within the same hour our flight landed, a Continental flight and another AA flight from Miami had also landed and yet it seems to me like I had my luggage in hand within fifteen minutes. I found this remarkable since previous waits would sometimes be as long as half an hour.

from a friend...

I wonder when they will start laying out our highyways with the new
hot mix asphalt plant brought in to do the runway

So far in our travels we've come across about a minute of driving over
international class highways.

1. The approach to the airport.
2. A little piece at the airport junction.
3. A tiny strip in front of the CGA plant in Pomona.

Anyone else noticed more of these little pieces of modern highway in
other parts of Belize?

The Western Highway would certainly do with a complete makeover.........

We're hoping the same company wins the bid for the Placencia road

I kind of liked the airport just they way it was.

Would love to see some pavement on the Placenica road - that thing is a gut buster!
