By Ingrid Fernandez, Staff Reporter

The general public is notified that an axle weight survey will take place in Benque Viejo del Carmen Town in front of the Cancha Marshalleck from February 22 to the 28th from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The survey seeks to gather preliminary information about the range of heavy axle loads borne by Belize’s main highways.

The survey will study heavy construction and heavy transport vehicles and will be used to assist engineers to improving future highway design, improve the performance of  routine  and  periodic maintenance. It will also be used to expand its database of vehicular axle weights.

The Department cautions motorists to operate with maximum safety, driving carefully and being mindful of the people carrying out the surveys on the seven dates mentioned.
