MERIDA — Work to improve the Colón and Cupules avenues is about 87% complete and is expected to be finished in October, according to a report on those routes this week.

Governor Rolando Zapata Bello, along with the federal deputy Jorge Carlos Ramírez Marín, some businessmen and officials from the Japay and the CFE, among others authorities, highlighted the quality and modernity of the infrastructure used in the works.

“Those are works that usually the people don’t see, but they are really important. All cables and poles in the area will disappear: now the services, electricity, drinking water and telephone will be underground,” he said.

“What we see is a well-made work, it will set a precedent in the State because it is carried out with international parameters, not only in the aesthetic part, also with top quality materials, better than any other used before in this city,” said legislator Ramírez Marín.

“It is a project that goes far beyond expectations,” he continued, “completing perfectly with an environment to which the state government has invested heavily and not only money, but mainly effort and task of consensus.”

In the visit to the works that surround the International Convention Center of Yucatán, Powered by Samsung, the governor activated the mechanism that disconnected the service of distribution of energy by aerial cables to give way to the change of phase and that enters into operation the underground system.

Jorge Solis de Avila, superintendent of CFE Merida, informed the governor and companions that they expect to complete these works in two weeks, to move to an underground power supply, with a new and modern automated system.

“With the removal of the posts it is expected there will be a fluid pedestrian traffic of all those who pass through the area, those who stay in hotels, who go to the new International Congress Center and to nearby businesses,” said the governor, when verifying where the underground network of 2,706.8 linear meters of cables was installed.
