Section 3 of the Mayan Train reports an 81 percent progress

In the weekly update on the project, led by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, it was announced that section 3 of the Mayan Train reports an 81 percent progress.

The leader of the National Fund for the Development of Tourism, Javier May Rodríguez, revealed that the third section, which extends from Calkiní in Campeche to Izamal in Yucatán, shows a progress of 81 percent in the construction of the road, equivalent to 129 kilometers out of a total of 159 kilometers planned.

A distinctive element of this section is that it incorporates 60 kilometers of electrified double track, and the creation of an electrical substation that is 96 percent complete.

Section 3 includes the construction of three viaducts, 69 transversal drainage systems and underpasses, along with 118 pedestrian, vehicle and wildlife crossings, thus creating 11,000 jobs in the local community of Campeche and Yucatán, particularly in the 15 municipalities through which this important transportation project passes.

Planning the arrival of the first train to Cancun

On July 8, the first train is expected to arrive from Ciudad Sahagún, Hidalgo, to the service and storage station in Cancún, Quintana Roo, confirmed Maite Ramos Gómez, general director of Alstom México.

The train, which consists of four cars, is 34 meters long, five meters high and three meters wide. The transfer of the train will involve the collaboration of various government corporations, including the Secretaries of National Defense, Communications and Transportation, the National Guard, Federal Roads and Bridges, and the National Fund for Tourism Development.

The train, which weighs 50 tons, will be unloaded with a special crane and then assembled and attached to the tracks.

Measures to protect the archaeological heritage and associated development works continue

The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) continues to work to protect the archaeological sites of Oxkintok, Uxmal, Kabah, Sayil, Xlapak, Labná, Chacmultún and Grutas de Loltún, which are part of the Puuc Route, as well as Dzibilchaltún, as reported Diego Prieto Hernández, general director of the institute.

The Program for the Improvement of Archaeological Zones (Promeza) has made significant progress in the tasks of excavation, consolidation of structures, foundations, restoration and conservation of these sites of great historical value. In addition, two Visitor Service Centers (Catvi) are being built in Uxmal and Dzibilchaltún.

The construction of the Puuc Archaeological Museum in Kabah, Yucatán, is 13 percent advanced. Among the most relevant discoveries, Hernández mentioned a ceramic offering in the Sunken Patio of Uxmal, Yucatán, which symbolizes the sky and the four directions of the universe.

The head of the INAH also detailed the efforts to preserve cultural and archaeological assets in section 3 of the Mayan Train. As of June 5, the following have been documented and preserved:

  • 7,368 properties such as foundations, albarradas and basements.
  • 376 movable objects, including metates and ceramics.
  • 319,637 ceramic fragments analyzed.
  • 55 bones.
  • 119 natural features such as caves and cenotes.

Blas Andrés Núñez Jordán, head of the Mayan Train Operations Coordination Center, announced that the New Uxmal Park, which currently shows a 52 percent progress, will be completed on November 30. This project will include a Mayan Train hotel, improvements to the pedestrian path, and natural rescue activities.

In addition, the O’Horán Hospital in Yucatán is being developed. Clearing and clearing of the land, topographical surveys and soil studies have begun, and the area for the construction site has been marked out. The completion of the project is expected for September 2024.

Mauricio Vila Dosal, governor of Yucatan, pointed out that in the port of Progreso, in collaboration with the Secretary of the Navy, the Naval General Hospital is being built. This project, which involves a joint investment of more than 290 million pesos, will expand the public service capacity for the civilian population of the region. To date, the work has advanced 50 percent.

María Luisa Albores González, Secretary of the Environment and Natural Resources, also attended the project update.
