México lanza el proyecto ferroviario Tren Maya de $7.400m

December 17, 2018 - El presidente de México Andrés Manuel López Obrador lanzó el Tren Maya – un proyecto de $7.499 millones para construir vías férreas a través de cinco estados, conectando las principales atracciones turísticas en la península de Yucatán

The 1,525km railway will link Palenque and the tourist resort of Cancún on the Caribbean coast. A third of the planned route passes through pristine jungle, and the owners of the land, the Maya people, say they have not been consulted, according to a BBC News report.

But President López Obrador dismissed environmentalists’ concerns, promising that “we won’t uproot a single tree”.
