Government presents contract for upgrade of San Estevan-Orange Walk Town Road

Posted: Friday, February 3, 2023. 4:03 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: With 70 percent of the Taiwan-funded Corozal Town-Sarteneja Road now complete, residents of surrounding villages are “clamouring,” according to Infrastructure Development Minister Julius Espat, for the completion of the loop to Progresso, San Estevan, and Orange Walk Town.

A US$3.5 million grant has been approved by the Republic of China (Taiwan) to fund part of works valued at more than $8.59 million to pave six miles of the road from Orange Walk Town (Banquitas Bridge) to San Estevan; Government will provide the remainder financing of two million.

Espat says this and the eventual upgrade of the remaining road from San Estevan to Progresso, a distance of 21 miles, will provide access to the farming and fishing communities of Chunox, Copper Bank, Progresso and Little Belize and open up opportunities for tourism on the Progresso Lagoon.

Works begin next week and will be completed in a year’s time.
