Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Q.R. — Governor Mara Lezama Espinosa announced that the state government, together with the federal government, invested 71 million pesos to build 83 streets in eight Mayan towns.
The new streets are being constructed in the Mayan area known as Los Chunes, in Felipe Carrillo Puerto. An additional 15 million pesos was also spent on public lighting and the expansion of a park.
“With these actions we will benefit 3,200 people and we will recover the shine of eight towns that were forgotten for years and years,” explained the Governor, adding that this is possible when corruption is fought and the people’s money is allocated to projects where they are needed most.
She explained that there are three communities in this area, Cecilio Chi, Chunyanché and San Antonio Norte, that already have public lighting on their roads and that the community of Kankabdzonot had their park expanded.
“Beneficiaries of this historic investment said that they had never before received the attention of a government like this humanist and progressive one headed by Mara Lezama and President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who were grateful for this support,” the Governor said in a statement.
Before the projects, residents had to overcome roads in poor condition and now they have better roads for transportation.
