An agreement of Governor Ney González Sanchez with the Infrastructure Undersecretary of the SCT, Óscar de Buen, ”will enable a project, wished for by Nayaritas for many years – the highway system of the Riviera Nayarit”, affirmed the Secretary of Planning, Pablo Montoya de la Rosa.
”Already there is a concrete agreement and we have determined who is going to build the highways, and which will be built by the federation and which by the state. The state of Nayarit will be beginning work, as the Governor announced in his second address, on an ambitious road plan of statewide highway concessions:
The first between Tepic and San Blas, the next between Tepic and Compostela, another between Compostela and Las Varas, and the last one would connect Las Varas with Bucerías, and all of them of four lanes ”.
This civil employee clarified that ”the federal government is going to also make its own freeway: the one that comes from Jala to Compostela and from Compostela to Puerto Vallarta. This is going to give the region a great transportation infrastructure for the integral development of the state ”.
With this, he added, ”the nayaritas will have open highways north to South which is the side of the state showing dynamic growth in tourism.
As well it is necessary to not forget the other highways that already are in process, like the Tepic-Aguascalientes and Ruiz-Zacatecas projects, that are both regional axes that come to form the road system of Nayarit that has been lacking, and that throughout many years, the nayaritas have yearned for. I believe that this is an extraordinary step taken by the administration of Ney González which will equip Nayarit with the basic infrastructure needed for years of economic development, generation of jobs, and most obviously, improvement in the level of well-being of the population ”.
Montoya de la Rosa explained that, ”indeed, the roadsystem of the Riviera Nayarit, by virtue of the need for 4 lane freeways requires very high levels of investment; estimated at 7 billion pesos, but in addition, the contract for the winning company establishes, in one of its clauses, that the 40 percent of the construction of these freeways will have to be done with local companies, which guarantees to Nayarit that the economic special tax of those 7 billion pesos, will remain in the region, with nayaritas industralists and workers, and this will generate an effect multiplying of the investment, and increasing the economic activity ”, which is very positive for our state, he concluded.
