March for Mexico motorway completion date
Mexico City is known as one of the worst cities in the world for traffic congestion but its new elevated motorway will help reduce jams at peak periods
The new elevated motorway connecting Mexico City ring road with Mexico-Cuernavaca motorway is due for completion in March 2016. The Mexican Secretariat of Communications and Transport (SCT) originally said that the link would be completed by December 31st 2015. The delays have been attributed to the complication in coordinating operations between the construction of a 5km-stretch built by SCT and the 2km section built by Mexico City’s Government. The two works could not be carried out at the same time. When it opens, the new elevated stretch will help reduce Mexico City’s notorious traffic jams.
