Cancun Airport – Tren Maya: Authorities prepare mobility plan
Everything is prepared to implement the infrastructure that will allow mobility to the Tren Maya station via stops in the vicinity of Cancun International Airport.
The Maya train station will be nearby, and users from the terminals will need to travel about eight kilometers on board a vehicle to get there, according to Carlos Trueba Coll, director of the airport terminal.
In order for passengers to reach the station using a constrained track, in each of the terminals there will be a stop and a unit that will be defined by the people of the Mayan Train.
He stated that although the circuit would be on airport property, it would be far enough away to allow for the eight-minute trip to the station and subsequent travel in the cars to the destinations.
Since an Environmental Impact Statement must be submitted to the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, he confirmed that there are preliminary studies of the works, such as soil mechanics and trajectory studies.
He made it clear that because this mobility project will only include a dedicated lane for it to pick up train passengers, it won’t have an impact on how the airport operates or cause more traffic.
One of the busiest stations is the Cancun International Airport station, which is one of the biggest and has a surface area of 34,745 square meters. It was designed by TEN Arquitecto.
The National Fund for the Promotion of Tourism’s schedule states that the Maya Train’s static tests are already underway in Cancun, that the megaproject will then start its dynamic tests, and that it will be officially opened on December 1st.
