Tulum, Q.R. – Nearly nine million peso has been allocated to the restoration of Tulum streets. Over the next two months, approximately 45,000 square meters of streets will be repaired throughout the town.
Jorge Portilla Manica, Secretary of Infrastructure and Transport (Sintra) said that the project was backed by state governor Carlos Joaquin, who announced the good news last week that money was being spent on the repairs.
Municipal president Romalda Dzul Caamal, explained that the money from property taxes is being used for the streets and that the work was being carried out by local contractors. Portilla Manica said “We are giving the work to local Quintana Roo workers as promised by the governor so that the economic benefit remains in the state.”

During the next two months, repairs will be made to Okoot Avenue between Avenues Coba Norte to the extension of Kukulkan with Sataelite Norte and Osiris streets.
