The Calla Creek cable bridge that connects the community of Calla Creek to the rest of the World is now open to pedestrians. This is good news to residents as the former bridge was washed away late last year due to flooding of the Mopan River.

Chief Engineer from the Public Works Department Lennox Bradley tells the Guardian that work on that bridge is now “substantially complete.”

Photos released from the office of the Hon. Rene Montero, Minister of Public Works, show large cement suspension towers at both ends of the bridge. With the added strengths, students, farmers and all other residents will now be able to enjoy the bridge for a longer time.

As for tourists wishing to enjoy the scenery of Calla Creek, guests at Kaana Resort (2.2 miles), Rumors Resort (2.6 miles) and the Mahogany Hall Boutique Resort can now enjoy the use of the bridge along with backpackers coming from AirBnb’s locations such as Coz Cottages and Arana Ville.

In August of 2016 the Calla Creek bridge was washed away in the record floods that affected that area.
