The News that the Prime Minister broke was heard a month back when the contingent from Taiwan was staying at Orchid Bay.

They indicated at that time, they were going to Pave:

1)The Road from Orange Walk to Sarteneja (which would include passing just short of Progresso, past Little Belize through Chunox to Sarteneja. That is over 40 miles.

2) From Chunox to Copperbank (a few miles from Cerros Sands) to the ferry to Corozal Town. This is approximately 14 miles.

3) Build Two Bridges replacing both The New River and Laguna Seca Ferries.

Also mentioned this would be done with their oversight and begin with a couple months.

It remains to be seen, however I believe this stems from Belize's (although a small country but with a vote) support for Taiwan at the United Nations level.

Not going to happen. The GOB has a history of misappropriation of funds, overt corruption, inefficiency, and failed promises usually around election time.
The road to Cerros or Consejo during the rainy season....

Anyone who lives in rural USA or Canada can tell you paving those particular roads would be a ridiculous waste of money. They don't need pavement they need Ditches and drainage. Thousands of miles of rural USA and Canada have great gravel roads but they are far above grade with ditches and drainage. Pavement does Jack squat to fix that...would break up after a couple years ... Then you would have an upgradable riverbed with broken pavement littered about. The roads need Ditches not pavement.

This is without even discussing the death toll from people driving as fast as a 1986 Ford Ranger without breaks can go on slippery ditchless pavement.

So true Zappy raise the roads and put in good drainage and a dirt road will last a long time. Occasional grading all that is needed.

The money would be better spent on a new international airport for Ambergris Caye linking the capital of the newly independent Island and Taipei!

BTW the photo on this thread seems to show CNN's Anderson Cooper snorkeling in a poodle and in fact is not in size with the other features! Donald ask me to say "fake news". I hope someone knows what that means!
