By Aaron Humes: Belize City Mayor Darrell Bradley unveiled a relatively small but crucial infrastructural project to upgrade and cement Cinderella Plaza and complete the concreting of 7 other streets in the city.
Following the completion of work by the Flood Mitigation Infrastructure Project, the heavily trafficked area near the intersections of Douglas Jones Street and Freetown Road had been left uncompleted. The sprucing up of Cinderella Plaza is part of a larger scheme that is to be rolled out this week and will cost $1.6 Million Bze. Dollars.
Seven other streets will be concreted and some others asphalted.
As well, last year public outcry of injuries sustained from accidents involving un-sealed man-holes were at an all-time high. Bradley says they will spend just over a half a million dollars to recap over three thousand man-holes.
If you are thinking these simultaneous projects will require tremendous resources, man power and finances to accomplish, you are probably right.
So how much more than the proposed one point six million dollars will be needed to complete these infrastructural feats? The total four million dollars comes from freed-up funds being used for payment of judgment debts and other Council issues.
