Tulum, Q.R. — The government of Tulum has inaugurated the first of nine 4.2-kilometer road connectors that will link Kukulkán Avenue and the coastal area. The new connectors, when complete, will improve traffic mobility in the area.
Tulum mayor Victor Mas Tah says the construction of the connectors is due to citizen requests over the years who have asked the city to improve mobility in the area, not only for workers and visitors, but also for emergency services.
“This project solves an old problem and was possible thanks to coordinated work by the government and businessmen,” adding that “Tulum is a developing municipality and projects such as this one are required to meet the demands and needs of citizens.”
He noted that these new connections will serve to reduce travel time of those who go to the hotel zone to work and will improve the response time of emergency services.
The general director of Environmental and Urban Planning, Gerardo Orozco López, explained that the nine connectors will link the coastal road from the point known as El Tábano to Casa Malca, which will gradually open over a period of time from three weeks to one month.
He said each one of them will relieve traffic on the Tulum-Boca Paila road, and that by the time summer vacation arrives, they will all be in operation.
