By BBN Staff: For many years, the Mennonite and surrounding communities around Spanish Lookout have enjoyed the free-ways (Highways) without any strict restrictions or enforcement of transport rules.
That is about to change as the Transport Minister Edmond Castro met in Belmopan yesterday with representatives from the Spanish Lookout Community to discuss the details of a plan to establish a new transport office to serve that community and surrounding areas.
The undertaking is being facilitated by the Spanish Lookout community which has identified a building to house the office and should become operational by mid-May 2018.
Statistics show that the area in question currently has a total of 2,606 registered motor vehicles and 1,145 motorcycles which displays a need for a transport office.
The eleven (11) communities that make up the area to be serviced by the new Transport Office are: Spanish Lookout, Duck Run I, Duck Run II, Duck Run III, Los Tambos, Buena Vista, Selena, Santa Teresita, Blackman Eddie, Unitedville and San Marcos.
