Egis was appointed to work on two of the seven sections (tramos) of the Tren Maya project.
Our teams are responsible for tramo 4, 257 km in length, with three stations: Chichén Itzá, Valladolid and Cancún. The railway’s central 225 km section runs alongside the 180 D highway (between Kantunil and Cancún); diverging from the expressway only at its extremities.
Using an existing route helps to reduce the environmental impact and the land gazetting costs generated by the project. The line will be electrified in both directions and will require two tracks.
Egis is also in charge of works supervision on tramo 5 south. With a length of 59 km, tramo 5 South will run between two major tourist destinations in Mexico: Cancún and Tulum. A motorway is currently being built by Egis, and the railway line will be built in parallel. The line will run for more than 120 km with a total of four stops including the well-known coastal resort of Playa del Carmen.
