On June 11th 2014 a ground breaking ceremony took place in Orange Walk for the refurbishing of 4.5 miles of the Philip Goldson Highway which passes right through the centre of Orange Walk. It was a major political event where it was revealed that the contractor hired to carry out the works was no other than Imer Hernandez.

And so the work commenced and to date a grand portion of the Belize-Corozal Road has seen major rehabilitation works. The thing is though, that two weeks after the hot mix was laid down and the road was open to vehicular traffic, signs of road damage are already being seen. Yesterday when the media interviewed Deputy Prime Minister Gaspar Vega he was questioned about the issue and here is his response.

“I don’t really know the situation to be sincere I am not an engineer, all we know is that we are going to check our work or what is being delivered at the end of the contract.”

And while that inspection is pending, yesterday the contractor had his work crews repairing those rough spots.
