By BBN Staff: PUP Party Leader, John Briceno presented the party’s plan for infrastructure development, rural living, housing and transport.
The policies and plans were launched as part of the PUP’s Plan Belize manifesto.
Commencing the launch, Briceno said that the PUP’s plan for infrastructural development are people-centered and the PUP plans for investments must lay foundations for human, social and economic development and growth.
Included in the plan is to amalgamate and streamline the Ministries of Works and Housing to be proactive in pursuing their missions, inspiring innovations in every area of work, holding people accountable for their actions, performing cost-benefit analyses of relevant projects.
The PUP is also including a forensic audit of all Belize Infrastructure Ltd (BIL) projects since its inception, inclusive of all contracts issued and signed.
“BIL was set up in order to bypass Parliamentary oversight and scrutiny of the Offices of the Contractor General and the Auditor General and has presided over years of wanton and reckless abuse of public resources. BIL will be abolished,” the plans stated.
The party says that it will engage in education and training for youths to participate in the construction industry by introducing more technical courses on electrical engineering, plumbing, welding, painting techniques and masonry as well as in construction technology.
The PUP says that it will assess main highways and existing structures to determine maintenance needs, and structural weaknesses and design a plan to address them in an orderly way.
The party also pledges to assess the need for road signage, including speed limit signs and other traffic signs and take steps to address, disorganized bus and micro-buses behavior on the highway.
