Cozumel looking for maritime ferry security solution

Cozumel, Q.R.– The municipal president of Cozumel, Pedro Joaquín Delbouis says he has already met with the concession holders of the maritime terminal to analyze a joint investment that will see improved safety features at the port.

Joaquín Delbouis explained that the issue dates back many months when metal detecting arches were placed inside the ferry terminals. He says that due to the excessive wind, they did not work properly so a protective barrier was installed, which he admitted, severely slowed down passenger traffic.

He says he has been to Mexico City and met with Navega, the concession company for the Playa del Carmen maritime terminal, to come up with a joint investment that will improve the safety of ferry travelers.

Joaquín Delbouis added that costs could range from 600,000 to one million peso, something that would require state or federal resource support.

“We seek to find a solution that bother tourists less, but ensure security for all,” he said.
