Government seeks loan for upgrade of last section of Philip Goldson Highway

Phillip Goldson Highway (Belize)

Posted: Thursday, May 26, 2022. 7:48 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Cabinet has recommended a loan motion seeking financing of BZ$48 million from the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) to upgrade and rehabilitate the last section of the Philip Goldson Highway.

The former Northern Highway was upgraded from its start at the Belcan Flag Monument Roundabout to the Airport Road (although the new Haulover Bridge is still being built, parts of the highway have sunk in places and the retaining wall near Mile 7 needs to be replaced after wearing out), and miles 24.5 to 92 are being upgraded at the moment.

Now, the section between miles 8 ½ to 24 ½ (roughly from mid-Ladyville to the area between Gardenia and Biscayne) will be upgraded to complete the rehabilitation of the entire highway.

Cabinet says, “The rehabilitation of this 16-mile section of the Philip Goldson Highway is expected to reduce transportation costs and accident rates, increase access to services, increase employment opportunities and improve climate resilience.”
