Nine mega-projects outlined by federal government for state in 2019

Cancun, Q.R. — At least nine mega-projects are set for the state of Quintana Roo for 2019 according to Proyectos México.

In the document Mexico Projects Hub, the government outlines several investment projects that are set to take place next year around the state. The outline includes projects such as the construction of the bridge over the Nichupté lagoon, the first stage of the Maya Train between Cancun and Tulum, the expansion of the Tulum-Bacalar highway to four lanes and the recovery of beaches in Riviera Maya, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen and Cancún.

One of the listed projects is the much-needed expansion of lanes along the federal highway where the government says the 1.8 billion-peso-project would see the function of the highway improved.

In their project description, they say the project will include the “Extension to 4 lanes and maintenance of the federal highway 307 in the Bacalar-Tulum section, with a total length of 207.84 kms from km 17 + 000 to km 225 + 000.”

They also report work for Cancun roadways, describing the project as the “Extension, maintenance and conservation of different sections of the Tulum-Cancún highway. The project is under review by the Secretaria de Comunicaciones y Transportes. Currently, permits are being processed by the corresponding federal agencies and no allocation of federal resources is expected.”

Other projects such as the 4 billion peso lagoon bridge is also in the mix, “Design, construction, equipment, operation and maintenance of a 7.4 km bridge over the Nichupté Lagoon to join Boulevard Colosio with Boulevard Kukulkán, which is formed by the Kabah road distributor, to improve mobility between the hotel zone and the city.”

Beach recovery for the region also made the list with the government explaining, “The project’s source of payment is under review. This may include budgetary resources as well as charges collected for the use of the Federal Terrestrial Maritime Zone (ZOFEMAT), among others.”

According to the federal government, the state of Quintana Roo will begin at least nine investment projects next year, some of which will conclude in 2019 while others are scheduled for completion in 2022.

These listed projects are in addition to other state investments such as the announcement of the mega-hotel project north of Playa del Carmen and the recent approval of the Amikoo Theme Park and Resort for Riviera Maya.
