The Mayan Train station in Cancun will be the largest of the railway project that will link tourist destinations and archaeological sites in southeastern Mexico, informed those responsible for section 4 during a meeting and supervision tour of the construction works.
Two lines converge in Mayan Train Cancun station: line 4, which will connect Cancun with Izamal, in the state of Yucatán, and line 5, which goes from this city to Playa del Carmen, in the state of Quintana Roo. The station will be connected to the Cancun International Airport, and it will be the largest as it will have 10 platforms, offering great connectivity to travelers.
During the presentation, those responsible for section 4 of the Mayan Train Cancun station reported that a marathon work is being carried out for this project, advancing in time to conclude at the end of this year, in addition to generating an economic benefit for the region by contemplating workers from the zone.
In terms of safety, they explained that according to studies by the National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred), the trains that will be used will be able to withstand the winds of a category 5 hurricane, allowing citizens and visitors to be transferred to nearby stations.
They also mentioned that in section 4, which will connect Cancun with Izamal in approximately 43.3 kilometers of track, the application of 12 environmental programs is projected to mitigate the impact in the area, considering having the first nursery in Cancun and later one in each station, in such a way that the flora removed for the construction of the train can be relocated.
