Cancun, Q.R. — Government plans to construct a bridge from the Cancun Hotel Zone to the mainland continues. In a statement, the Strategic Projects Agency of the State of Quintana Roo (Agepro) reported the preparation of a geophysical study for the development of the long talked about Nichupté Bridge.
Agepro (Agencia de Proyectos Estratégicos de Quintana Roo) says that the project “completely spares” the Nichupté Mangrove Protected Natural Area and is also outside polygon of Malecón Tajamar. The agency also points out that the project proposes a strategic connection of 8.8 kilometers between the urban area of Cancun, starting from Kabah-Colosio to Kilometer 13 of the hotel zone.
The agency stated that due to the magnitude of the project, comprehensive complementary geophysical studies are being done, which will allow for the best construction system that will have the lowest environmental impact.
The government of Quintana Roo says that it continues to carry out all the necessary environmental studies to ensure the least impact on the environment without fragmenting the ecosystems and without affecting the geological substrate.
