If you have been on your way to Chetumal MX lately and are wondering what are all those military looking equipment doing on our border, well on December 4th the Corozal Daily reported that Belize’s portion of the Bi-national Border Bridge was to be completed by Mexico.The Mexican government agreed to finance the construction of the bridge, 500 meters of road from the bridge into our Belizean territory, and the access road from the bridge to the Subteniente Lopez community in Santa Elena located in the state of Quintana Roo.
The 500 meters of access road on our Belize side was commenced by unarmed military elements of Mexico’s army using equipment and machinery from their military needed for execution of the project, which is estimated to last for a period of four weeks.
The 500 meters of road under construction is marked with a yellow line.
The opening of the bridge and access road should alleviate the bottle neck congestion of the long lines of traffic coming out of the Corozal Free Zone and clashing with Belizean commuters trying to get in and out of Chetumal MX. The improvement of traffic flow across the two borders should be significant.
Clari Fredersdorf (age 35), and her daughter Shanny (18), were executed on 4 July at their family's hotel, the Paradise Bay Villa, South End, Corozal Town. Witnesses reported three dark-skinned males leaving the scene on foot. The motive is unknown, as both females still had on some jewelry.
