Without prior notice, the rates for the Kantunil-Cancún concessioned highway rose again and now the rate to circulate in the two sections of this road from Kantunil to Valladolid and from Valladolid to Cancun, still the main tourist destination of the country adds to $504 pesos.
In the case of Valladolid-Pisté, in Yucatán, the toll per a car is $185 pesos and in the case of El Tintal, in Quintana Roo, towards Cancún, it is $319 pesos.
The previous rate was $175 in the case Valladolid-Pisté and $305 in the El Tintal, Quintana Roo, to Cancun.
However, the service is getting worse. According to testimonies of motorists, it is often the case that the services in the rest area, 10 kilometers from Valladolid, often run out of water and electricity. Add to that, that it is quite common to see only one toll booth window in operation, while long lines of cars, tourism buses and cargo trucks generate, waiting to pay the toll.
This highway, has an extension of almost 300 kilometers, and was inaugurated in October of 1994 by the then president Carlos Salinas de Gortari. Originally, the road was ran by the “Kantunil-Cancun Autopista Trust” responsible for its operation, composed of Fomintur (45% of the shares), the Mayab Consortium (construction company, with 25%), Federal Roads and Bridges (25%), and the government of the state of Yucatan (5%).
The Company Fomintur fell into insolvency in 1995.
In March 2008, ICA (Ingenieros Civiles Asociados) reported that one of its subsidiaries acquired the total shares of the concession for the Kantunil-Cancún highway. With ICA in charge of the concession, another two installments were built to Playa del Carmen and Holbox, from the junction of El Tintal. However, they were not dual-lane two-lane highways, respectively, but only one lane with limits, as in the ‘free’ roads Tulum-Felipe Carrillo Puerto or Chemax-Piste.
In August of 2017, ICA filed for bankruptcy.
