By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing (MIDH) said on Wednesday that due to ongoing works at Mile 7 on the Philip Goldson Highway, the road has been reduced to one lane for the next five days.
The MIDH said its construction contractor is continuing the repairs of the portion of the retaining wall on the bank of the Belize River near Mile 7 on the Philip Goldson Highway.
“Road users are advised that traffic will be reduced to one lane while passing through the work site,” said the MIDH.
“In this phase of the repairs, high strength steel retaining rods are being installed from the piled retaining wall structure to terrestrial concrete anchors on the opposite side of the road
“Reduction to one lane will take place over the next five days; therefore, road users are also asked to bear the unavoidable traffic back up in mind when planning their trips. An optional route to consider is the John Smith Road to the George Price Highway.”
Long lines developed on Tuesday as traffic slowed down since vehicles are only allowed to go in one direction at a time.
The MIDH said that the speed limit in the vicinity of the construction zone is 5 miles per hour or as directed by the flag person on site.
The MIDH advised motorists to practice considerate driving, to obey traffic signs and regulations, to drive with due care and attention, and not to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
