AMLO affirms train, Tulum airport ready for December next year after weekend flyover inspection

Tulum, Q.R. — “We are working, creating embankments, hydraulic projects and bypasses along the 970 kilometers of the Maya Train,” Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Sunday.

AMLO posted his comments on social media after making another area helicopter flyover for a progress update on his train project. It was his second flyover of the year and 15th since becoming president when he announced the start of the mega-project.

AMLO was accompanied by other officials as he did aerial tours of the states where the train will run. He did briefly touchdown in Tulum around 9:00 a.m. Sunday where he inspected the area for the upcoming train station.

From there, AMLO and his entourage moved off to the municipality of Felipe Carrillo Puerto where the Tulum International Airport will be built.

López Obrador again said that “after the completion of the Felipe Ángeles airport, brigades of military engineers set out to build another 550 km of the Escárcega, Calakmul, Chetumal, Bacalar and Cancún section, including the new Tulum International Airport. As a whole, this great project will be completed in December of next year.”
