By Benjamin Flowers: Yucatan’s District Court has temporarily suspended construction on the Tren Maya (Maya Train) project in Mexico, citing environmental concerns.

The project, now on its fifth section, is a planned 1,525-kilometer railway that will run through the Yucatan peninsula, to take tourists to major tourism hotspots and destinations less visited.

Earlier this month, the District Judge ordered that the project be halted on the grounds that there may be environmental damage that construction in the area of section 5, which is expected to connect the popular tourist hotspots of Cancun and Tulum, could cause. Travel Off Path, a travel and adventure news site, reports that environmentalists along with a group of cavers had claimed if the construction continued along its current path, it would cause irreversible damage.

The Judge noted that insufficient environmental studies had been undertaken relating to the construction of section 5.

Construction will resume after additional studies are conducted to thoroughly assess the potential environmental impact.
