Grateful to the one above … It was in January 2019 when AMLO announced that he would promote a Metro project that would connect the municipalities of Chalco, Valle de Chalco, Ixtapaluca with CDMX, specifically to the Iztapalapa Mayor’s Office. And apparently the president is determined to make this project a reality.
This Sunday, November 22 López Obrador met with Alfredo del Mazo, Governor of the State of Mexico, and Jorge Aganis Díaz Leal, head of the Ministry of Communications and Transportation, to supervise the works of the Interurban train Mexico-Toluca, which is expected to be ready by 2023 after an investment of 90 billion pesos.
AMLO says that he is already fine-tuning details of the project for the Chalco-CDMX train
Well, during his visit AMLO mentioned that the train to connect the Mexican entities has not been forgotten, because in fact is fine-tuning the executive project to check the costs and time it will take to build this modern transportation system, which he wants to end before the end of his six-year term (that is, before 2024).
In accordance with the president’s plans, Chalco, Valle de Chalco and Ixtapaluca are planned to be able to connect directly to the Calzada Ignacio Zaragoza, either through Los Reyes la Paz or the nearest Metro station. This is to help “that highly populated region of the State of Mexico and facilitate its communication with the capital.”
After many years it will be a reality?
As we discussed earlier, the creation of this new transportation line that will run from CDMX to the State of Mexico It is one of the campaign commitments that AMLO made to the inhabitants of Chalco and Valle de Chalco many years ago, because at that time he assured that if one day he became president of Mexico this project would be a reality.
Well, that moment has already arrived and we still have to see how things progress, well various previous governments (Felipe Calderón, Eruviel Ávila, Alfredo del Mazo, Juan Zepeda, Delfina Gómez) They also said at the time that a work would be carried out to unite the State of Mexico with the CDMX, but the years passed and everything remained in words that the wind carried away. Now will it be done to us?
