Contract for the Mayan Train was finalized due to an ‘impossible’ term from the Government – ​​El Financiero

Grupo México responded this Monday to the accusations of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who assured that the company did not comply with the construction of a section of the Mayan Train that goes from Playa del Carmen to Tulum.

The conglomerate indicated that it terminated the contract early before the deadline granted for the construction of Section 5 South.

“It was due to the technical impossibility to carry out the project in 11 months and deliver it in July 2023. A breach derived from new requested delivery dates was avoided, ”he explained in a statement.

Grupo México stressed that the deadline given represented an “imposed haste” for the completion of the section.

“The consortium did not commit any breach during the term of the contract,” he added.

“Finiquito is attached to the law”

After that decision, Grupo México indicated that it has followed the process to terminate the contract in compliance with the requirements established by the National Fund for Tourism Promotion (Fonatur).

“The consortium has accepted the Government’s proposal that the settlement derive from the analysis and conciliation that take place with the military engineers. Grupo México maintains its absolute conviction that the settlement must be transparent, attached to the facts and legality”, he added.

“An agreement is going to be sought because they worked and invested and they want an amount for what they did and the technicians Fonatur maintain that it is not that amount the one that corresponds to them, that is, they are wanting to charge more or Fonatur pay less as they want to understand, ”López Obrador explained in his ‘morning’ this Monday.

The consortium made up of Grupo México and Acciona Infraestructuras, to whom the contracts had originally been awarded, delivered the works carried out until July 15 for which Fonatur offered to pay 37.9 million pesosaccording to information obtained by Reform.
