According to Hon. King, over 70 million dollars will be invested in his constituency and this will include the construction of the bridge that will link the George Price Highway and the Philip Goldson Highway; the construction of a multipurpose complex; a new civic center; a police station as well as the office complex for the National Bank of Belize.

So far the bridge is two thirds complete with workers currently putting in the decking. At 195 feet in length, the targeted date for completion of the bridge is December of this year; however, work crews are diligently working to have it completed two months earlier.  

Speaking to the press last week, Minister King emphasized that the work being carried out in the area is properly planned to ensure that there is an increase of business in the area. Additionally the compliment of government facilities in the area are expected to uplift the entire area. King noted that there are already numerous requests from business persons who are interested in establishing operations in the area. He said that as the work is being undertaken, careful consideration is being placed on the balance between residents, business houses and the other projects.
