Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal led the start of construction works for the Caucel Multimodal Transfer Center (Cetram) located on the Mérida Periférico Ring Road. This center will allow the interconnection of various modes of transportation and the organization of routes coming from different parts of the state, prioritizing the use of public transportation, user transfers, and the development of infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists, as part of the “Va y Ven” System.

From the inner circuit of the Mérida Periférico Ring Road to the west, Vila Dosal flagged off the construction of this facility, which is the first of 5 in total. It will be built along the edge of the aforementioned circuit as part of the 10 concrete actions promoted by the Governor to strengthen this service.

Virgilio Crespo Méndez, the head of Public Works Conservation (Inccopy), stated that the plans include a vehicular area with 13 platforms, administrative offices, a warehouse, an interior walkway, a rest area for operators, a ticket booth, 4 public restrooms, open parking with 11 spaces, an ascent and descent bay, as well as 2 concessionable spaces.

In the presence of Rafael Kisel Reinisch, the leader of Volvo Group Mexico, the official mentioned that the layout of the site focuses on 6 platforms for vans and 7 for buses, which will allow for the reorganization of public transportation to avoid unnecessary trips in certain areas of the city and its surroundings.

This site will be served by 140 vans from different municipalities such as Hunucmá, Kinchil, Celestún, and Tetiz, as well as around 40 transport units. This will enable users to make transfers at a single point, which, with the integration of “Va y Ven” and other benefits, will be free of charge for the people of Yucatán.

Within the building, all the groundwork with masonry and foundation chains will be carried out, using reinforced concrete structural elements and, whenever possible, local materials such as block walls, reinforced concrete pillars and beams, and insupanel roofing.

As announced by the Governor, five Cetrams will be built in Progreso, Motul, the Cancún highway, Umán, and Caucel East. These centers will facilitate the interconnection of various modes of transportation, with a focus on public service, transfers for people, and the development of infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists.

Additionally, another Cetram will be located at the Gran Parque de la Plancha, which will be the main one. It will feature 5 bays for boarding and alighting, waiting areas, commercial premises, offices, a Control and Monitoring Center for the Ie-tram on the second floor, and a station for this vehicle with 16 chargers and 3 pantographs.

The Cetrams aim to modernize public transportation, enhance the urban landscape, and provide quality infrastructure to citizens, thus improving safety, accessibility, and efficiency in the transfers carried out daily by people both within and outside the city of Mérida.
