Maite Ramos Gómez, general director of Alstom México, mentioned that the fifth convoy of the Mayan Train left Ciudad Sahagún, Hidalgo, and will arrive in Cancún, Quintana Roo, next week. This convoy joins the existing ones that have carried out successful tests, reaching speeds greater than 140 km/h.
In addition, it was reported that section 3 of the Mayan Train, which extends from Calkiní in Campeche to Izamal in Yucatán, includes key infrastructure for the transportation of goods.
This includes a Railway Operations Center in Poxilá, Yucatán; a Multimodal Terminal in Progreso, Yucatán; and a fuel loading terminal for Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex).
Currently, 159 kilometers of track, including 60 kilometers of electrified double track, have been completed. The percentages of progress at the stations vary from 75% to 95%, and complementary projects have generated around 11 thousand jobs.
Manuel Muñozcano Castro, general director of Azvindi Ferroviario, indicated that the installation of the track and the electrical welding are practically completed, and the catenary, the train’s electrical energy system, is also making significant progress.
The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) concluded the archaeological rescue in section 3, and the remaining tasks are focused on the analysis and restoration of archaeological materials, as well as the recovery of information.
The general director of INAH, Diego Prieto Hernández, highlighted the discovery of numerous real estate, furniture and ceramic fragments, in addition to human burials and natural features associated with the presence of ancient human groups.
The Archaeological Zones Improvement Program (Promeza) protects the Puuc Route, a region rich in history and culture, and is working on the construction of museums and visitor centers in Dzibilchaltún and Uxmal.
These efforts are part of the government’s commitment to preserve and value the cultural heritage of the region through the development of the Mayan Train.
