The president of the Veracruz South Region Business Council, Claudio Velazco Martell, stated that the construction of the Coatzacoalcos III Bridge is an unfinished project.
The above is an alternative measure to facilitate traffic in the industrial zone after the crowds just recorded at the entrances of the city.
He said that the necessary infrastructure is needed to avoid economic losses such as those caused by traffic in the Ex Caseta area and other roads that connect industries.
“It costs a lot of money to everyone who brings the raw materials, but also to the ordinary citizen. Well, they stay in the projects. Unfortunately, they are big money investments that no one wants to take anywhere. Nobody wants a Coatza III bridge, but if we are going to blow up the place, we need better infrastructure,” he said.
The new bridge It was thought about five years ago, and it will cost 2 billion pesos. But it is only a proposal that will happen during the six-year term of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
In the last few days, frequent traffic jams have been recorded from the Transístmica highway to the Caracol bridge and the Coatza I bridge above, as a result of the repair that takes place on the Nuevo Teapa-Cosoleacaque highway, which causes the load of vehicles and especially heavy units to reach the southern port, coupled with the fact that the roads are in poor condition.
“We collapsed at one point; the north was so strong that there was no power, no water, no services; now we have another occasion,” he concluded.
