Minister Admits Mexico’s New Maya Tourist Train Hasn’t Got Environmental Approvals

Mexico’s Environment Minister María Luisa Albores admitted that the controversial Maya Train railroad project intended for tourists lacks environmental approvals for four of its planned sections.

Luisa Albores said the four sections in question only have provisional approval, but have begun construction anyway due to a decree issued by President López Obrador in NOV 2021, reports Mexico News Daily. The Maya Train project has been mired in controversy as construction efforts have cut through portions of forest, prompting protests and cancellations.
