Screen_Shot_2014-07-18_at_7.43.15_PMOn Wednesday June 18th of this year, we reported on the 4.4 million dollars that was allocated to commence road works and to “concrete” parts of the Philip Goldson Highway in Corozal from in front Social Security Building right up to the Santa Rita Hill.

When we first aired the report, BTL and BWS were carrying underground works thus seeing a delay in the infrastructural project.

But with BTL’s and BWS’ work complete works on 7th Avenue have begun as one mile of road is being prepped to be cemented.

Reliable sources tell us that the first portion of the road and the drainage being built to alleviate the flooding in the South End of Corozal Town will be cemented today.

Today when we visited the office of Hon. Pablo Marin, who is heading the project, we were informed that he was out of office. Contractor for this project was awarded to Imer Hernandez Development Company, owned by the infamous Imer Hernandez, the nephew of Deputy Prime Minister Gaspar Vega.

Also of note is that under this same project Government has requested that Mayor Hilberto Campos identify additional streets, starting with two, which need to be upgraded.
