Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Playa del Carmen’s secretary of Municipal Territorial Planning and Sustainability says that on Wednesday, workers will begin the laying of tile stones along sections of Fifth Avenue, which will begin to provide a vision of the completed project.

He says with that will be the arrival of the first of two loads of paving stones that will be laid. A third load is also set to arrive this week.

“These tiles will form that surface that we will step and walk on,” he said explaining that “on Wednesday, the laying begins and work will be carried out in double shifts, at night, to go at the same pace as the arrival of the material.

He added that 25 adult trees between three and five meters in height have also already been planted.

“We will continue planting as we go along and this week, we will have a new vision of Fifth Avenue. We intend to finish the first street between 4 and 6 North with tiles, that is to say, a first view of how Fifth Avenue will look,” he highlighted.

In the case of the Fundadores Park, Duarte Castilla indicated that they began the construction of the retaining walls of the embankments that give the level change for the formation of the amphitheater.

“The park, if we consider it will be in September. The progress is good and the work rate is the same,” he summarized.
