BZ_Bridge_to_BelizeResidents and leaders of Subteniente Lopez a small Mexican Community bordering Belize Mexico Border continue to lobby with their Government for the reopening of the old bridge. Since the opening of the new Chactemal Bridge the small town’s economy has declined drastically and many local merchants have been forced to close their businesses.

 

The reason behind the drop in business is the fact that tourists, including Belizeans, no longer have the need to pass through the community better known as Santa Elena to access Chetumal.

 

We understand that State Government representatives have met with Mexico's ambassador to Belize Mario Velázquez Suarez to discuss the reopening of the old bridge but a decision is yet to be made. But for residents of the small community negotiations are just taking too long and with their livelihood in jeopardy they are taking the matter into their own hands. The following is a report carried out by Notevision in Chetumal Quintana Roo. Click on link to view story.

Reports coming out of the Mexican community indicate that seven locations that were on the main avenue of Subteniente Lopez have closed their curtains and more than 150 are bankrupt.
