MÉRIDA, Yucatan, April 13, 2023.- The Merida City Hall is working permanently on maintenance and preventive programs for urban infrastructure so that they are operating properly before the upcoming rainy season, thus reducing the impact on pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers, informed Mayor Renán Barrera Concha.

The Municipal President pointed out that the rain wells are being cleaned and the grates are being dredged, in addition to the expansion of these rain collectors to prevent flooding.

“The City Hall maintains several maintenance and preventive programs in the city ranging from the attention of public lighting, pruning actions and cutting of branches in the sidewalks, parks and main avenues, as well as the cleaning of the grids and rain wells so that they are operational and functional in the next rainy season,” he said.

As part of the works, he explained that within the operative program of the Public Services Department is the construction of ditches with grids and deep wells; the cleaning of deep wells, collector wells, and ditches with grids, and the repair of ditches and wells.

For his part, the director of Public Services, José Collado Soberanis, indicated that these preventive actions are complemented with the attention to the reports generated via Ayuntatel and social networks.

“To reduce the damages caused by the rains, the Drainage department of the East and West zone work all year round in the preventive maintenance programmed in neighborhoods and police stations, but also attending to reports from Ayuntatel, social networks and letters that reach Municipal Public Services,” he said.

“To expand the network of rainwater collectors, in the last six months, the Drainage department in the Poniente zone carried out the construction of 66 deep wells in areas where puddles have been recorded.

“In addition, a total of 17,546 linear meters corresponding to 8,773 ditches with grids have been dredged for a better functioning of the systems; and 181 collector wells have been dredged with machinery,” he said.

He also pointed out that Drenaje Poniente, also in the last six months, built 56 ditches with gratings, with a total of 112 linear meters, thus attending citizen reports; unblocked 176 deep wells and repaired 686 ditches and curbstones, actions that will allow better functioning of the systems.

In particular, he added, preventive maintenance focused on the main avenues and busiest streets to avoid traffic congestion or traffic accidents as a result of the rain.

He mentioned that some of these avenues are Prolongación Montejo from the Periférico to the Monumento a la Patria, Campestre in the stretch from Prolongación Montejo to 21st Street, Avenida Colón, Avenida Cupules, Reforma, from the Miguel Hidalgo traffic circle to Famsa; and Avenida Canek between Periférico and Itzáes, among others.

“The attention to the police stations has also been intense, as we have worked in the four cardinal points to provide quality care to the entire municipality and thus prevent possible flooding,” he said.

He also reported that preventive actions included the construction of cisterns on 67E and 138th Street in the Bosques de Poniente neighborhood, in the San Marcos Nocoh neighborhood, in the Industrial neighborhood, in the Francisco de Montejo subdivision, and on Avenida Merida 2000 in the Residencial Pensiones section.
