López Obrador pays weekend visit to Tren Maya Peninsula sections

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Governor Mara Lezama Espinosa accompanied President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on the supervision tour of sections 5, 6 and 7 of the Maya Train.

López Obrador made the weekend visit to Quintana Roo before heading to the neighboring state of Yucatan.

While in Quintana Roo, both toured the Tulum Airport, which according to Lezama, is officially “connected with 19 cities in the world and in a short time, has positioned itself as a reference for the central area of the entity, connecting the center and the south with the world.”

These last sections of Tren Maya, 5, 6 and 7, are the sections that run from Cancun southward to Chetumal then over to the city of San Francisco, Campeche to complete the loop. Along the finished Tren Maya routes are archaeological zones, local artisan markets and in some stops, Tren Maya hotels.

Due to the complexity of construction along these routes, their dates of operation have been changed to allow more build time, however, according to López Obrador, they are on scheduled for an operating date at the end of February.
