Five major Cancun city projects advancing on time

Cancun, Q.R. — Cancun Mayor Ana Paty Peralta says the city’s ongoing infrastructure projects will enhance mobility once complete. Over the weekend, she thanked the visiting President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador and Governor Mara Lezama, for managing and developing the projects.

Once finished, they will allow the circulation and connection of the city to be expanded, improving entry and exit to other destinations including alleviating traffic congestion into and out of the Cancun International Airport.

Most of the infrastructure projects around the city are scheduled to be finished toward the end of the year.

In the case of the airport distributor, there is progress of 64 percent, while work on the Nichupté Vehicular Bridge registers 21 percent advancement in its construction. Workers have recently begun pillar work inside the lagoon itself.

The five major city infrastructure projects come in at a cost of just over 8.8 billion peso, which are all being carried out in the municipality of Benito Juárez (Cancun).
