More than 50 billion invested in Quintana Roo infrastructure

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — More than 50 billion pesos has been invested in infrastructure across the state of Quintana Roo in 12 months. The federal investments have been received during the past year to both improve state roads and build much-needed projects.

Some of those projects generated by Governor Mara Lezama include the Quintana Roo Park of Chetumal, as well as the expansion of bypass 180-D, the remodeling of Colosio Boulevard, the new cloverleaf airport distributor, remodel of Avenue Chac Mool and the current construction of the Nichupté lagoon bridge, all in Cancun, as well as the newly announced Puerta al Mar beach access for residents of Felipe Carrillo Puerto.

The 50 billion in projects was made possible with the help of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who is also working to transform the state and bring social justice to the Quintana Roo people of the north, center and south.

The public projects are part of the Comprehensive Program for the Development of Strategic Projects in Cancun with federal investment destined for the well-being of the citizens of the south-southeast of the country.

Projects have also reached the south with the Quintana Roo Park that will house the new Expofer in Chetumal, the capital of the state.

In the heart of the Mayan Zone, in the center of Quintana Roo is the development of the Puerta al Mar project, which will be a 55-kilometer road from Felipe Carrillo Puerto to Vigía Chico. That project has already started.

The Governor is also working on settling historical debts, as is done in Tihosuco, where an investment has been achieved hand-in-hand with the federal government for streets and rehabilitation of the museum which will allow community tourism to be promoted along with the Maya Train through Maya Ka’an.

Undoubtedly, the historical management of works that boost the local economy and generate formal jobs also include the construction of the new Tulum airport “Felipe Carrillo Puerto”, the Jaguar Park and the Maya Train, emblematic projects of the federal government that will transform Quintana Roo for the benefit of people.

“It has undoubtedly been a historic year in the transformation and governance of true change, in which people are at the center of decisions, so that they receive the benefits of shared prosperity,” Lezama reported.
