Overhead power lines along southern Tulum Avenue being replaced by modern underground system

Tulum, Q.R. — The southern end of Tulum Avenue will soon see its overhead electric lines buried and replaced by an underground system. On Tuesday, Tulum Mayor Marciano Dzul Caamal announced the start of a project that will see the aged overhead power lines replaced with a modern underground option.

During the project inaguration, Caamal said “the southern end of Tulum Avenue will have underground electrification and lighting circuits to improve the city’s image and reinforce the ninth municipality’s urban infrastructure.”

The project is being fulfilled with resources from the Fondo de Aportaciones para la Infraestructura Social, Municipal y de las Demarcaciones del Distrito Federal in the amount of just over 6.8 million peso.

“By having underground wiring, factors such as wind, lightning, falling trees will not be a concern. In addition to that, the underground lines will have provide a first class urban image.

“I thank our President Mr. Andrés Manuel López Obrador, since this project is being done with federal resources,” said Dzul Caamal.

The project is set for completion August 17.
