SICT reports study for Cancun-Maya Train station connector half finished

Cancun, Q. R. — The Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SICT) is reporting a 50 percent completion rate of an environmental study that will see the Cancun airport and Maya Train connected.

SICT Secretary, Jorge Nuño Lara, says that the connection of the Cancun Airport to the Maya Train station is 50 percent advanced in the study for environmental mitigation and the selection of rolling stock is already in the evaluation phase.

In a press conference from the National Palace, the head of the SICT said that for the infrastructure projects being are carried out in Cancun, the main thing is to care for the environment, which is why they include mitigation measures.

For every 20 hectares with an environmental impact, these are compensated with 353 hectares located in the regional system, through the integral management of vegetation, fauna and waste, and the installation of nurseries.

“The mitigation measures are aimed at improving the quality of the lagoon system’s wetlands,” he emphasized.

Last month, Nuño Lara announced that the Cancun projects being built by the SICT, the Nichupté Vehicular Bridge, Luis Donaldo Colosio Boulevard, Airport Distributor and Chac Mool Avenue, will include an electric bus system to connect the four terminals of the Cancun International Airport with the Maya Train station.
