It’s been one year since the former railway station of Tekax, that used to be a landmark and important part of the historical heritage of this town, was completely abandoned. The roof and part of the structure are falling apart, and residents of the area have complained with the municipal authorities, which have not responded.
The people of Tekax regret that, in spite of the changes in the City council, the new authorities have not done absolutely anything regarding this matter. Not even the street lamps are working at the former railroad station.
María Góngora, who lives a few meters from the place, points out that on several occasions they have expressed their dissatisfaction with the abandonment of the area that is part of the city center, but to date they have not received a response from the local authorities.
“Parts of the ceiling have already detached and the pillars that support the roof also require maintenance because the structure can collapse. The previous City Council ignored us, and we see that despite the change in administration, the problem is still not addressed, ” Góngora said.
“Around the old building several food vendors install their carts at night, and they have to serve customers in the dark, which gives a bad image to the city,” she continued.
The former railroad station is located on the corner of Calle 41 with 50, near Avenida Ricardo Palmerín, just about 100 meters away from the the Municipal Police headquarters.
Many Tekax citizens consider that the place must be maintained because it represents part of the historical heritage of the city and it is unfortunate that the place is literally “falling apart”.
