In Quintana Roo there are eight investment projects that go from massive transport, works by infrastructure and recovery of Beaches, which together represent an investment of 47 thousand 713 million pesos.
Information held by AmericanPost.News reports that the project that includes the largest investment is the one that has begun to be called “Cancunbus”, Which will be an articulated bus system called Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), which aim to ease transportation in the jewel of the Mexican Caribbean.
As this medium published since November 2021, it is considered an investment of 32,900 pesos for this mass transport, similar to the Mexibus that operates in the State of Mexico, and that it is a project of confined lanes where articulated buses will run.
At the national level, this mass transport has been extended from 2016 to date, and has systems installed in cities such as Metrobús in CDMX, Mexibus in the State of Mexico; Route in Puebla, Optibús in León, Guanajuato; Tuzobús in Pachuca., Hidalgo; Macrobís in Guadalajara, Jalisco; Ecovía in Monterrey, Nuevo León, and two called Vivebús, in Chihuahua and Cd. Juárez, in the state of Chihuahua.
29 stations and 2 terminals
The Cancunbus is projected under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) scheme, with a 30-year contract, in which the contract would be awarded to a company, supposedly via an international tender, for the design, construction, equipment, operation, administration and maintenance of BRT from Cancun.
It is estimated that transport meets a demand for 66,800 daily passengers, and is part of the comprehensive strategy of the government of Quintana Roo to feed and complement the Mayan Train of the Federal Government.
“The project consists of the design, construction, equipment, administration, operation and maintenance of a mass transportation system of 47 kilometers in the City of Cancun and integrating it with its hotel zone,” says the project.
This would be done in two phases, one of 33 kilometers that would run elevated along the hotel zone on Boulevard Kukulkán to the junction with the Cancun International Airport, and the second of 14 kilometers level in lanes confined in Av. Tulum and Av. Universidades.
In total, 29 stations and 2 multimodal terminals are planned, in addition to the workshop and garage in the area of the Cancun International Airport.
With a projected investment of 4.5 billion of pesos, in December 2021, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that the Army will be in charge of the works of this vehicular passage, which aims to lighten traffic in the Cancun Hotel Zone with the Nichupté Bridge.
The project contemplated the “design, construction, equipment, operation and maintenance of a 8.80-kilometer-long bridge including the junctions over the Nichupté Lagoon, which will provide a new road connection between the urban center of Cancun specifically at the Monumento Antigua Torre de Control roundabout, called Kabah road distributor where the Bonampak, Kabah and Tulum Avenues converge which, continuing its journey to the south, takes the name of Av Luis Donaldo Colosio with km 13.0 of the Hotel Zone at the height of Plaza Kukulcán.
The government of Quintana Roo intended it to be a quota step also granted for 30 years, although this option was rejected by AMLO‘s decision that it be built by the Army, which would reduce the cost by 1 billion of pesos.
Bacalar-Tulum Highway Expansion
Another major project being considered in Quintana Roo is the expansion to four lanes of the federal highway 307, right on the Bacalar section-Tulum.
The expansion is planned for 207.84 kilometers, between kilometer 17 + 000 and ending at kilometer 225 + 000.
It is considered that the expansion of the highway will be carried out through an international public tender, and to date the permits are being worked on with the federal government agencies.
The estimated investment amount is 1.8 billion of pesos.
With a projected investment of 600 million pesos, the government of Quintana Roo also plans to build the Tulum Bypass, which consists of the design, construction, operation and maintenance of a type A2 highway with 2 traffic lanes of 3.5 meters each and boundaries of 2.5 meters, in a section 12 meters wide, with a total length of 26 kilometers.
The project includes three junctions, including one near the Gran Cenote de Tulum, and relatively close to the area where it is planned to build the Tulum Airport announced by President AMLO, whose investment and characteristics are unknown, although this will also be built. by the Army.
Recovery of beaches
Finally, the four remaining projects that are being considered in Quintana Roo have to do with the beach recovery from various areas of the Mexican Caribbean.
The one with the largest investment is that of the Riviera Maya, with an investment amount of 873.7 million of pesos to attend 4.99 kilometers of sandy areas.
The second highest investment amount is expected to go to Playa Norte in Cancun, with 813.4 million of investment pesos, to attend just 2.97 kilometers of beaches.
The third largest investment is Playa del Carmen, which although it will serve a larger area, of 8.60 kilometers, an investment of 760.4 million of pesos.
And finally, the one with the lowest investment is that of Cozumel, with an estimated cost of 510.8 million of pesos to attend 750 meters from the beach.
In all cases, the recovery would be done by extracting sand from approved marine banks, in order to guarantee the necessary width in the sandbanks that allow to preserve the federal maritime-terrestrial zones of the four points, with 20-year projects.
