In silence, resigned, but not happy, hundreds of drivers wait sometimes for more than 40 minutes to go through the area where the City Hall is carrying out the works for the so-called “modernization” of the road distributor of the Periférico – Progreso highway.
The drivers who travel from East to West on North bound Periférico, in the stretch that goes from City Center to the intersection of the Progreso highway, are the most affected, since there are not any alternate ways in that section but the exit to Temozón to reach its destination.
In the Francisco de Montejo area, the distributors of Dzitya and the Non-polluting Industries Park (Parque Industrial de Industrias no Contaminantes) were also affected, where the lines of cars stretched for more than a mile.
However, as drivers know, that they are heading into chaos, they stay calm and off the horn of their vehicles, and do not complain much, since they understand this is a consequence of the rapid growth of the city.
So far, the roads are still congested in that area, and it looks like that’s going to be the case for a month or two… at least.
Police officers are on site 24-7, just making sure it goes slow and easy.
