Today, a contract was signed between the Government of Belize and Nabeel Abdul Raheem Consultants (NARCO) and BECA International Consultants Ltd. for the services of consultancy and construction supervision of the Airport Link Road Project. The agreement was signed for BZ$4,973,500.

The Airport Link Road is approximately 8.1km (5miles). The upgrade proposed includes the construction of one high-level bridge crossing the Belize River near to the existing airport access road. The proposed alignment intersects the George Price Highway, follows some existing trails for the most part before traversing low-lying marshland with a bridge crossing the Belize River and finally intersects the airport access road, near Gentrac Belize Ltd. The project includes the construction of earthen embankments, crushed gravel pavements, and two (3.65m) lanes with paved (1.2m) shoulders conforming to a 100kph design criteria. The bridge structure has a span of 81.7 meters (3 spans at 26.7m), a trafficable width of 12.05 meters, designed to AASHTO Standards, and is of reinforced concrete build.

The services were procured by the Government of Belize as a counterpart measure to its funding partner the OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID). With the no objection from the funding agency the award for the supervision of the works was made to a joint venture of the two firms, both of which have many years’ experience in Belize.

The Airport Link Road Project was appraised by the OPEC Fund for International Development and presented to its board of directors who approved a loan for approximately US$12M.
