Railroad blockade of the Tren Maya, without effects in the Yucatan Peninsula

The route of the Tren Maya in the Yucatan Peninsula did not have any interruption due to the brief blockade carried out by former railway workers demanding compliance by the Federal Government with the agreements with the Federation of Retired Railway Workers.

According to information collected from different sources, the bullfights scheduled in the three peninsular states, Quintana Roo, Yucatán, and Campeche, were carried out without setbacks.

Even the governor of Quintana Roo, Mara Lezama, and the general director of the IMSS, Zoé Robledo, traveled today with their delegations on the Tren Maya to Nuevo Xcan to supervise the Health for All program, which consists of a caravan of trucks with medical equipment that offer 15 free services to the population.

The blockade of the Tren Maya route was carried out in the town “Coronel Gregorio Méndez Magaña”, belonging to the municipality of Emiliano Zapata, in Tabasco.

According to information from El Heraldo de Tabasco, a group of railroad workers blocked a section of the Tren Maya on the Campeche-Tabasco-Palenque route, which prevented it from continuing its trip to Cancún, Quintana Roo for 3 hours.

The blockade ended with the arrival of military forces and the call from the Ministry of the Interior for a meeting on Thursday to address the demand of the country’s former railroad workers.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador reported in his morning conference last Monday that on Wednesday, February 28, he will carry out a supervision tour of the complete route, from the Palenque, Chiapas, to Cancún, Quintana Roo section.

The route will begin at 7 in the morning that day and the goal is to travel 860 kilometers at a speed that will increase from 120 to 140 kilometers per hour. On February 29, the Cancún-Playa del Carmen section will inaugurate, a route that has caused greater controversy due to the planting of steel and cement piles that affect the water in the cenotes and the natural formations of the caves.
