According to McKenzie, just over two hundred thousand and four thousand dollars will be spent on these road works.

Mckenzie explains that the work currently underway is only preparatory work only and not the final product.

This project, Mckenzie says, is being supervised by the Ministry of Public Works and being executed by locally owned company Belize Minerals Limited.

This phase two of the project, according to Mckenzie is a continuation of the works started in September.
