Costa Maya, Q.R. — An additional five properties are being expropriated in the south for the Maya Train. The land has been declared public utility and will be used for section 6.
The new decree will see more than 114,000 square meters of land corresponding to five privately owned properties put to Maya Train use. The five properties are located in the municipalities of Bacalar and Othón P. Blanco.
The decree, published in the Official Gazette of the Federation, states that the topographic plans of the properties and the file created for the purpose of this declaration, are available to all those natural or legal persons who prove and justify a legal right or interest.
Of the five properties, two are located in the municipality of Bacalar and three in Othón P. Blanco.
In December, the government of Mexico expropriated private land in the municipalities of Tulum, Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Othón P. Blanco and Bacalar after also declaring those “of public utility”, which will also be used for section 6 of the Maya Train.
