Tulum begins the work of moving power lines underground

With the electric modernization work on Tulum Avenue “poles and cables are going to disappear,” municipal president Víctor Mas Tah said at the start of the work, in which they will invest $1.5 million pesos.

“We want Tulum to continue being the favorite place for tourists and visitors, so we will continue working hand in hand with businessmen and citizens to achieve the progress of the entire municipality,” he said.

He expressed that the poles and cables “only contaminate the image of this beautiful place” and committed to generating more works for the benefit of society “because with more infrastructure we will generate greater well-being and a better image”.

The works, which will last an average of 75 days, will provide greater security to citizens and tourists and will prevent the distribution network from being affected during the hurricane season; according to the mayor, they will try to have the least impact on tourism and business activities.

The businessman Germán Gallegos Cruz, better known as “Don Cafeto”, told the president that he expects more from him because “he is committed to our municipality and I congratulate him because he will end this image as a cobweb on our main avenue”.
