By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Infrastructure Development is holding a community consultation at San Roman, Corozal District, as part of the Philip Goldson Highway and Remate Bypass Road Upgrading Project on Thursday.
The community consultation is for residents of Santa Clara, San Roman, and Louisville villages which are going to benefit from the Philip Goldson Highway rehabilitation.
“The purpose of the meeting is to inform the respective residents on the final road design and on the importance of adhering to safety precautions in an effort to minimize the risk of accidents during civil work operations,” the MIDH said.
MIDH Representative Alexis Salazar said they will explain to the residents the scope of the work which includes road widening, putting in bus sheds, safety features, sidewalks, and signage (road markings). The MIDH will talk to the villagers about how long the work is going to take and what to expect while the road construction goes through their villages. Salazar said that road construction through villages normally takes three months.
The community consultation will be held at the Centro Escolar Mexico Junior College in San Roman on Thursday, April 20, from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm.
The Philip Goldson Highway and Remate Bypass Road Upgrading Project includes the rehabilitation of the Philip Goldson Highway between Mile 21 by Biscayne and the Belize-Mexico border and the Remate Bypass Road that goes from a roundabout between Louisville and Concepcion by the Cornerstone Presbyterian School to a roundabout near Santa Elena passing through five villages: San Pedro, Cristo Rey, Yo Chen, Patchakan, and Chan Chen.
