Cancún, Q.R. — Urban development of Cancun says they have an agenda to improve mobility in the city starting with a new terminal for foreign transport vehicles.
With a budget of 40 million peso, the director of the Municipal Institute of Urban Development of Benito Juárez, Carlos Día Carvajal, said that he is advancing in table talks with the participation of the three orders of government and citizens.
“We propose a 10-point agenda to improve mobility in Cancun. We already have three points in particular set, one of which include a lot located at the confluence of Tulum and Kabah bypass as a passenger transport center,” he said in a press conference.
It will replace the “spontaneous terminal” that arose in front of Plaza Las Américas, which congests and collapses traffic along Tulum Avenue since the State Land Transportation units also pass through there.
“It will be to decongest the area of Las Americas and generate a transport point to Riviera Maya, Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen with a point of contact between foreign and urban transport.”
Another point will involve the traffic light at Tulum and Uxmal where the Monument to the History of Mexico is located.
“It’s another point of conflict. We already worked with video simulations of that area and with private contributions from businessmen,” said Díaz Carvajal, who explained that this is a “valve” for those leaving the area of Puerto Cancún along Bonampak Avenue.
The third point refers to Avenue 135 and its extension located in the south of the city. “The idea is to vent vehicular traffic of the southern urban complex and avoid it being as in recent years, the only way out for those who go to the airport or to Playa and have to use all of Cancún Avenue.”
Cancun’s traffic issues are being analyzed by the Municipal Institute of Urban Development of Benito Juárez, the Secretariat of Infrastructure and Transportation, the Urban Image Commission of Cancun and the Secretariats of Urban Development.
