Cancun, Q.R. — Demolition has begun on a section of Cancun’s Luis Donaldo Colosio Boulevard. On Tuesday, heavy machinery began the demolition of the roadway’s central media in preparation of its 450 work day remodeling project.
The city says it has begun the preparation work that will see the project officially started this weekend. The director of Cancun Municipal Planning, Sergio de Luna Gallegos, stressed that although any remodeling causes inconveniences, the four projects (three roadway and one bridge construction) that will be carried out in Cancun arise from the needs of the residents themselves.
Over the course of the next year and a half, the Secretariat of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation (SICT) will be in charge of the junction project at the Cancun International Airport, the construction of the Nichupté vehicular bridge, the rehabilitation of Luis Donaldo Colosio Boulevard and Chac Mool Avenue.
“It is an unprecedented investment for Benito Juárez. We must be very thankful for the negotiations with the Government of Mexico because we urgently needed projects of this magnitude since the city is growing at a rate higher than the national average, which is two percent, and Cancun is growing at six percent,” he said.
On July 29, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is scheduled to visit the area for another supervisory flyover of his Maya Train project. While here, he will stop in Cancun to mark the official beginning of the city’s four mega projects.
