Guatemala: Alternate Project to the Belize Bridge under Study

The Ministry is examining the construction of a suspension bridge over the Belize Bridge, with which it is seeking to reduce vehicular traffic.

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

El Periódico, the Guatemalan newspaper, published on its website: "’A decision will be made after the results of the study, which will be completed in June, are known,’ said deputy minister Wilfredo Garcia.
The portfolio already has drawings prepared by a Japanese company to build the suspension bridge over the Belize Bridge. It would have six lanes and would be supported by pillars that are parallel to the ones that are holding the current bridge."
