Riviera Maya Business Council urges Merida court to resolve section 5

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — The Riviera Maya Business Coordinating Council are hoping a Merida court will rule favorably to resolve the temporary suspension against the Maya Train project.

Lenin Amaro Betancourt, president of the Business Council says he is urging the Merida Superior Court to resolve the issues that will allow the work on section 5 to move forward.

Amaro said that during a recent meeting between the business sector and Rubén May, director of Fonatur, they were told as long as the legal suspension is valid, work on that section of the train cannot resume.

That also includes the rehabilitation projects scheduled for the Federal 307.

Amaro said that it is necessary for authorities to, once and for all, set the layout for section 5 so the project can resume and the rehabilitation projects for the Federal 307 from Cancun to Tulum can also move forward, referring to the emergence of area sinkholes over the past year.

“Today it is in the courts, but it is expected that in the month of June, it will be resolved so that the project can be completed on time in 2023,” he said.

Amaro said that the development of the Maya Train and Tulum Airport are important for the Riviera Maya business sector,= since it only only creates local jobs, but also because it promotes economic development and tourism.
