MÉRIDA, Yuc.- The secretary of Urban Development and Environment (Seduma), Eduardo Batllori Sampedro, said that this year the Management Program to Improve Air Quality (ProAire) will be ready. Currently, only one system is available and new ones will be placed in parts of the city with more traffic.
“We are implementing a program to measure the air quality and prevent air pollution, through which we will be guided to develop a series of strategies and actions to reduce air contaminants; this program will also allow us to have greater power of management and more resources in order to strengthen the monitoring system” he said.
“It is necessary to place more monitoring systems in different areas of Mérida and the State of Yucatán where people still have the bad habit of burning piles of trash in open spaces ” said Batllori Sampedro. He also explained that these systems are necessary in the downtown area, around the bus stops where a large part of the pollution accumulates.
That is why many associations such as the “Patronato del Centro Histórico de Mérida AC“, have presented the initiative of getting the buses out of downtown Mérida and turn it into a pedestrian-only area. But the public transportation concessionaire companies (linked to political parties) oppose this idea.
“The bus stops in the downtown of Mérida have to be removed, we have to change the flow of movement in order to have a better air quality for the people of our city,” the secretary of Urban Development and Environment concluded.
