Sedetus reports interest in possibility of light train for Cancun

Cancun, Q.R. — The Secretary of Sustainable Urban Territorial Development (Sedetus), Armando Lara De Nigris, says there is interest in the possibility of a light train system for Cancun.

De Nigris says the potential project has attracted the interest of some businessmen. The city is considering the light train project that would run along Huayacán Avenue instead of the Cancun Hotel Zone.

If constructed, the train would provide additional improvement to the city’s heavy mobility.

De Nigirs says the train would be a feeder to connect with the city and is something that has already been presented to the Undersecretary of the Secretary of Communications and Transport Infrastructure (SICT).

“Regarding this light train project, the truth is that we are analyzing it as a state authority in terms of mobility, but what we have received are options and proposals from businessmen, from private companies who want to be part of it, which is very important, very necessary, but we have to analyze it and see if it would fit with the needs of Cancun and if it would really help the city with mobility,” he said.

He explained the idea at first was for a light train to connect the International Airport with the city center and the Hotel Zone, but since a large population is concentrated in the south of the city, the ideal route would be for it to run along Huayacán Avenue.

He says they will be asking the opinion of managers of the Cancun airport, which could enrich the project by helping to decide on the best route.
