The Nuevo Necaxa-Tihuatlán 85 km-long
motorway, being built by FCC in a joint-ven-
ture with ICA, crosses the states of Puebla
and Veracruz and is part of the Tuxpan 283
km-long Mexico Tuxpan corridor, the main
road network connecting Mexico DF with
the Gulf of Mexico.
The motorway is divided into two sections:
one which is 36.6 km-long, Nuevo Necaxa-
Ávila Camacho and the 48.1 km-long Ávila
Camacho-Tihuatlán section.
This motorway is the shortest route connec-
ting Mexico City with the sea.
Nuevo Necaxa-Tihuatlán Motorway
”The Nuevo Necaxa-Ávila Camacho project
is highly relevant for Mexico, concluding the
Mexico-Tuxpan road network and offering
Mexicans a direct route from the central part
of the country to the Gulf of Mexico. The
motorway will promote development of the
large regions in the State of Puebla, Hidalgo,
Tamaulipas and Veracruz, bringing down the
historical barrier created by the eastern part
of the Sierra Madre mountain range.
This motorway will spark the development
of the Tuxpan harbour and will contribute
to making the states in the country’s cen-
tral region strategic logistic centres through
the Mexico—Tuxpan-Tampico-Matamoros-
Chicago-Toronto corridor, connecting the
central region to the Gulf of Mexico in 2
hours and 30 minutes, providing users with
efficiency, safety, and economy, and slashing
operational costs of vehicles by reducing tra-
vel time.”
According to Juan Carlos
the representative
of the Communications and Transport
Department for this project:
One of the most important water works in
Mexico, the objective of this project is to
meet the water supply challenges in the
short, medium and long-term of Santiago de
Querétaro and relieve the current pressure
on the sustainability of the aquifer, ensuring
also the lowest possible production costs.
Water will come from the El Infiernillo springs
at the Montezuma River, four kilometres
downstream from the rocky formation that
gives rise to the canyon of the same name.
This water is of exceptional quality and cap-
turing it will not cause any negative environ-
mental impacts.
The Los Cabos project involves the construc-
tion of the junctions at the Cabo San Lucas-
San José del Cabo ring road in the Mexican
state of Baja California.
FCC is building the road sections from km
0+000 to km 27+484.6 which connect the
interior highway with the cities of San José
del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas involving the
construction of four road junctions (El Mangle,
San Lucas, San Jose and Corral de Piedra).
The length of these sections is 6.5 and 6.6
kilometres, respectively.
The road is 14 metres wide has two 3.5
metre-wide lanes in each direction and
will enable traffic speed of 110 km/h. The
junctions will be built over flat terrain to ensure
the minimum environmental impact.
