President Enrique Peña Nieto delivered road infrastructure in the Tijuana-Tecate-Rosarito metropolitan area in Baja California.
“Today we are inaugurating, for example, maintenance work on the four lanes of the Tijuana to Tecate route and improvements have been made to the Tijuana-Ensenada highway.”
In 2012, the government made a commitment to improve road infrastructure in the Tijuana-Tecate-Rosarito metropolitan area. Four years later, these works have been completed.
Works in the metropolitan area:
- 100 km of roads have been modernized.
- Maintenance work has been carried out on the four lanes that make up the Tijuana-Tecate route.
- improvements have been made to the Tijuana-Ensenada highway, which goes through the center of Rosarito.
- “Conservation work has been performed on Juárez Avenue and University Avenue and on the Mexicali-Tecate highway, where a third lane was built.
These works entailed an investment of over 617 milion pesos and benefits more than 1,750,000 inhabitants of the border region.
Works completed on the northern border:
- Construction of Pedestrian Bridge at Tijuana International Airport. (185 million pesos).
- Construction of new pedestrian access East Puerta Mexico, at the intersection of San Ysidro-El Chaparral, the world’s busiest crossing point.
With these infrastructure projects, Baja California and Mexico as a whole will be able to attract more investment, create more jobs and, above all, improve families’ quality of life.
"Here we can already see the various other infrastructure projects with private sector participation being promoted in Baja California.”
Projects in progress:
- BRT articulated transport system in the city of Tijuana, together with the state government (2,859 million pesos).
- Expansion of Puerta Mexico San Ysidro-Puerta El Chaparral International Crossing Point (600 million pesos).
- Construction of new international crossing point Otay II (2 billion pesos).
"And for the first time, today, Baja California and Tijuana have the first binational airport, an airport that is located precisely in the middle of the border of two nations, and where the crossing from one nation to another, from Mexico to the United States and the United States to Mexico, can be done directly at Tijuana International Airport. This is the impact of these infrastructure projects that are being developed.”
