MERIDA — The repairs to Merida streets vandalized with sulfuric acid will be the responsibility of the construction companies, as a sign of “solidarity” with the citizens, municipal authorities reported.
Virgilio Crespo Méndez, director of Public Works of the Commune, recalled that the preliminary analysis of the chemical spill confirmed that it was sulfuric acid, which severely damaged several recently paved streets, which will have to be repaired completely.
He said that the effect of the chemical “aged” the asphalt by decreasing its durability and causing its disintegration, which forces a replacement of this.
“According to estimates, the economic damage amounts to about 400 thousand pesos, in terms of severely damaged points, although it is still to be determined the sites with the least impact, as well as the strategy for their repair,” he said.
He reiterated that this expense will be borne by companies that carry out the repaving works on the streets of the city, so the Commune would not have to spend too much on the repairs.
He pointed out that in total there were about 60 thousand square meters of track, in little more than 50 points of 35 different sections in the whole city.
Regarding the investigation of the case, which weighs a criminal complaint, he indicated that the Attorney General’s Office would have already asked the state police to review the security cameras in the city to try to identify those responsible for this act.
