México lança projeto ferroviários de $7.400 milhões

December 17, 2018 - O Presidente mexicano Andrés Manuel López Obrador lançou o
Comboio Maia – um projeto de $7.400 milhões para uma linha férrea de 1.525km a ligar as principais atrações turísticas da península do Iucatão e atravessando cinco estados.

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”.
