Mexico Delays Riviera Maya Airport Construction Bidding, But Maybe Only for a Few Weeks
Bidding for construction of the Riviera Maya airport was to have opened April 15, but Mexico's department of Communications and Transportation has delayed the process, possibly only until later this month (May 2010). Secretary Humberto Trevino said that the Federal Competition Commission (Cofeco) had raised some issues that needed to be addressed. Mexican President Felipe Calderon said in March that the airport is one of the priority projects in his National Infrastructure Program. Both the airport and the Punta Colonet mega-port have been delayed due to the global economic crisis, but prospects for both projects have obviously improved in recent months.
