President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) announced that the Mayan Train project will be delayed, once again, this time due to the construction of a cable-stayed bridge.

Obrador referred to criticism of the project due to the contamination of a cenote in this part of the route.

“It was decided to build a cable-stayed bridge with a span of 200 meters, that is, we are not going to fix columns, but it will be a bridge instead (…) and this means a delay for the project.”

On April 11, the president accepted for the first time that a pile contaminated a cenote that was within Section 5 South of the Maya Train route.

That day, when questioned about alleged ecological damage – he was shown a clip of the site located between Akumal and Tulum – in Section 5 South of the Mayan Train published by the international press.

Lopez Obrador stated that some media outlets and civil associations related to the “opposition block” are “magnifying” information about the contamination of aquifers.

This is how López Obrador announced one more delay in one of his emblematic works that would originally be delivered and finished at the end of 2023.

In November 2023, AMLO declared that the Train would not be delivered in full in December, but in sections.

And now, the head of the Executive delayed the completion of the project until after the June 2 elections.
