Belmopan City now has a new set of traffic lights that will improve public safety for both motorists and pedestrians. Chair of the Belize Road Safety Initiative, Ms Yvonne S. Hyde, Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of Economic Development and Petroleum, passed through for an inspection of the Traffic light system at the T Junction by Constitution Drive and Forest Drive in Belmopan on Friday.

At the Forest Drive Site were the Representatives from the Belmopan City Council, Shane Orillo and Israel Chuc. Also present were the Contractor’s Representative, Jacob Banman and Daniel Cano from the Belize Roadway Construction,  along with the Traffic Light Experts from CEMEX Mexico.

A series of tests on the traffic lights conducted on Friday was very useful to make the necessary adjustments. The team was also by the traffic lights on Saturday to continue their work.

Hon. John Saldivar, representative for Belmopan described on Saturday, “As we welcome visitors to Belmopan for Agric Show, I cannot help but feel proud of some of our recent infrastructure achievements, which visitors will no doubt enjoy. Proud to be the Area Rep under whose watch Belmopan has received its first set of traffic lights; proud to be the Area Rep under whose watch Belmopan has received a fabulous walking, running, and cycling track, and proud to be the Area Rep under whose watch Belmopan has received three spanking new roundabouts fitted with water fountains and lights.”
