Clearing of land started for sections 6 and 7 of Maya Train

Chetumal, Q.R. — The clearing of vegetation has been started for sections 6 and 7 of the Maya Train. Over the weekend, crews started the evaluation process that will result in the clearing of land from Bacalar the Chetumal.

The work was started after the INAH finished its archaeological salvage program in the southern part of the state.

Antonio González Notario, the General Secretary of Volqueteros Caja Roja of Chetumal, the company of dump trucks that will work those sections, says they have already been hired to haul the material.

He said that in the community of Juan Sarabia, which is where the materials warehouse is located, there is already a large volume of steel, sleepers and ballast from Veracruz and Puerto Morelos.

Now, they are now in the clearing process to stabilize the soil and build the embankment where the tracks will pass.

“The vegetation is being moved to one side. It is low vegetation and now, the soil must be stabilized and compact to make embankments,” he said.

He said that the clearing, soil stabilization and embankment compaction should be expedited as soon as possible to have a greater advance in terms of these projects prior to the rainy season, which could significantly delay the project.
