This project is divided into several components in areas of Belize City and Ladyville, with two of those directly targeting road infrastructure from the Airport Road Junction to Haulover Bridge and from the Haulover Bridge to Buttonwood Bay Boulevard Roundabout.

Included in the infrastructural works will be the construction of retaining walls in areas where the threat of erosion on the road foundation exists, installation of erosion protection baskets and rock rip-rap, pavement restoration and re-surfacing.

Road lighting and safety features such as signs, reflectors, road marking and improved visibility through the clearing of road reserve is also included in the budget and work is expected to commence immediately.

Financing for this project was obtained by the Government of Belize, through a loan from the Caribbean Development Bank.road upgrade signing1
