FONATUR representatives confirm that the congestion will continue. They estimate that the first stage of the Tren Maya will be completed within 45 days.
Authorities announced that FONATUR has finally taken over the control of the highway and are now in the planning stages of a 22.7 KM (14 miles) detour that will relieve traffic on a highway travelled by more than 50 thousand vehicles transiting every day.
This week FONATUR has been given the task of repairing the highway, carretera 307, that runs between Cancun and Chetumal.
The inaction of the federal authorities to repair the sinkholes in the in the stretch of highway between Playa del Carmen and Cancun has caused economic losses in millions to the tourism sector.
Beginning June 21, the National Tourism Promotion Fund (FONATUR) will begin repaving the Kukulcán Boulevard in the Cancun hotel zone.
