Playa Del Carmen Real Estate Area's Traffic To Be Alleviated By Two New Bridges
Playa del Carmen Real Estate owners generally enjoy the benefit of living in a citywhich provides all conveniences and necessities, but at the same time a city relatively free of traffic; crossing the city from one extreme to the other rarely takes more than 25 minutes. The TOPMexicoRealEstate Network, "Your Expert Property-Finders," realizes the benefits for home owners of not wasting precious time in traffic, which is one of the many reasons why we can recommend Playa del Carmen as an ideal place to live.
Besides being an excellent place to live, Playa del Carmen Real Estate offers solid investment opportunities. These situations are allowing the city to grow rapidly; for this reason the government is taking steps ahead of time to avoid future traffic problems. The Federal Mexican Ministry of Communications and Transport (SCT) has given approval for two new overpasses in Playa del Carmen. The bridges will be built on the federal Cancun-Playa del Carmen-Tulum highway, over three of the busiest intersections with main avenues.
The Director General of Public Works, Eddy Flores Villanueva, confirmed that the construction of two overpasses in Playa del Carmen will begin early 2010. The longer of the bridges will be built on the section of the federal highway between Juarez Avenue and 34th Street (also passing over Constituyentes), while the second is planned for the Colosio Avenue intersection. The "High Vehicular Bridges" will allow the movement under the bridge and freer movement on perpendicular streets.
In the near future local government will meet with the SCT to discuss the details of the beginnings of the physical work and to plan strategies to avoid affecting traffic flows during the process of the work.
SCT reported earlier that elevated bridges in Playa del Carmen were originally postponed to 2010 because of budget cuts.
The construction is could begin as early as mid-January 2010 since the preliminary work has already made a significant amount of progress. At the moment, the SCT has already made the down payments to contractors in order to acquire the entire prefabricated material to be used. Originally 18 months were allotted for the duration of construction; with this preliminary work complete, the Playa del Carmen Real Estate region could be enjoying the benefit of the bridges as early as 9 months from the beginning of construction.
Antonio Cervera Leon, president of the Association of Land Owners and Investors in the Riviera Maya and Quintana Roo, supports the Ministry's preliminary work to facilitate the construction, and avoid tying up traffic flow in the area.
"We know this work will be done in record time," said Cervera, "and we agree with the authorities and residents, who will benefit both locals and visitors by improving transit and travel time."
