Road bypass likely for Tulum after launch of new airport and train

Tulum, Q.R. — State government officials are meeting to plan a road bypass system for the municipality of Tulum. The bypass is being considered to avoid anticipated road congestion once the airport and Maya Train are complete.

Governor Mara Lezama says she is meeting with Rogelio Jiménez Pons, the Undersecretary of Transportation of the Ministry of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation (SICT), to analyze the project.

She explained that after the launch of the Maya Train and the Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport, Tulum will have a bypass that will serve as a complementary project to the other two federal mega-projects.

“In Tulum, with the arrival of the Maya Train and the International Airport, we need a bypass so in that sense, we are going to continue working, we are going to continue building,” she said.

Lezama highlighted the importance of opening a bypass, especially for vehicular cargo along the federal 307, however, she says the road bypass will relieve traffic congestion in general.

Lezama said that during her meeting with Jiménez Pons, other projects will also be analyzed to improve and expand road infrastructure around the state.
