A New Era of Connectivity and Progress: Section 1 of the Mayan Train at 91 percent

The Mayan Train project, a crucial initiative in the infrastructure development of the Mexican southeast, has reached a significant milestone.

According to Óscar David Lozano Águila, the main person responsible for this megainfrastructure, the first section of the train, which covers 226 kilometers spread across seven municipalities in Chiapas, Tabasco and Campeche, is a notable 91% complete.

A Boost to the Economic Development of the Southeast

Section 1 of the Mayan Train is much more than a simple transportation route. It constitutes an engine of economic progress, linking strategic areas such as Palenque with the Interoceanic Corridor of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.

This link is crucial, as it will facilitate the movement of goods between the ports of Salina Cruz and Coatzacoalcos to the Yucatan Peninsula.

Key Operations Centers for Commerce and Industry

With operations centers in Palenque and Escárcega, this section of the train becomes an economic catalyst, promoting key sectors such as Pemex and construction, through the transportation of materials such as steel, cement, as well as grains and perishable products, without forgetting the automotive industry of the peninsula.

Impact on the Local Community

The first phase of the Mayan Train is not only a feat of engineering and logistics, but it is also a project with a strong social component.

It is estimated that it will benefit around 397 thousand local inhabitants, providing key infrastructure such as workshops, garages, maintenance bases and six stations.

Each station shows notable progress, with Escárcega being the most advanced with 95% completion.

Progress in Complementary Infrastructures

Beyond the railways, the project includes impressive complementary works, such as the Palenque Boulevard, which has already reached 99% of its construction.

In addition, of the four planned viaducts, the Candelaria one is already completed, and the rest are expected to be ready before December 15.

A Source of Employment and Development

This monumental project has generated 21 thousand jobs, revitalizing the local economy. So far, 11 of 12 bridges and almost all of the pedestrian, vehicular and wildlife crossings, as well as cross drainage works, have been completed.

Technical and Environmental Advances

João Pedro Parreira, executive director of Mota-Engil Latin America, highlighted the progress in the construction of the Boca del Cerro Bridge, a key piece of infrastructure. In addition, the track laying is already 94% complete, with the track platform and structures already completed.

The Mayan Train: More than Transportation

The Mayan Train is configured as a multifaceted project. Maite Ramos Gómez, from Alstom México, detailed the different types of trains that will be part of the project, including 31 standard trains, eight Janal trains with a restaurant and three long-distance P’atal trains.

Preservation of Cultural and Environmental Heritage

This project also encompasses cultural and archaeological preservation.

Under the direction of Diego Prieto Hernández of the National Institute of Anthropology and History, thousands of real estate structures and movable property, as well as ceramic fragments and human remains, have been rescued in the areas of Moral-Reforma, El Tigre and Palenque.

Commitment to the Environment and Employment

The Secretariat of National Defense also contributes to the project with the construction of the Tren Maya Hotel in Palenque and a regional building for the company, creating more than 700 jobs and accompanying these buildings with the planting of more than 5 thousand trees.

A Key Date on the Horizon

With the opening date set for December 15, the Mayan Train not only promises to be a means of transportation, but a cultural and tourist experience that links key destinations such as Palenque, San Pedro Balancán and the Cenote Azul de Escárcega.

Solidarity and Collaboration

Solidarity and teamwork have been essential in this project.

This was evident in the weekly meeting where both officials and business representatives participated, showing their support for the people of Guerrero and reaffirming the commitment of the governors of Chiapas, Rutilio Escandón Cadenas, and of Tamaulipas, Carlos Manuel Merino Campos, with the project.

The Mayan Train represents not only an advance in terms of infrastructure and transportation, but also a promise of economic development, employment, respect for cultural and natural heritage, thus marking a new chapter in the history of the Mexican southeast.
