Tulum, Q.R. — Tulum city council says they are working on three mega infrastructure projects for the coming months. The three projects include the Maya Train, a vehicle bypass and the construction of a new landfill.
The news came from Tulum mayor, Victor Mas Tah, who says they are in advanced negotiations with various government agencies including la Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT) and Fondo Nacional de Fomento al Turismo (Fonatur), as well as environmental authorities.
“In the coming weeks, we will be broadcasting the information of the dates for the start of the bypass and landfill, while the Maya Train will depend on the agreements that are achieved between all the sectors involved, although in Tulum, they have achieved agreements with the ejidatarios to grant the rights of way,” explained the mayor.
Mas Tah added that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has expressed his support for the construction of the highway since the infrastructure is vital for the growth of Tulum, as well as the proposals with the head of Fonatur, Gustavo Jiménez Pons and the Ministry of Communications and Transportation, Javier Jiménez Espriu, which will result in better circulation and ease of transit in the center of the town.
