In an effort to promote new development opportunities for the state capital, the Government of Quintana Roo is beginning dredging operations on the Zaragoza Canal.

The Governor Carlos Joaquín, together with other state and federal officials, yesterday marked the start of the dredging works on the Zaragoza Canal.

During the ceremony, the Governor presented the project that will, as he said, “allow the creation of new commercial and tourist routes with Belize and Central America”.

The project calls for dredging of the canal to remove the hazard of shallow water increasing the canal dept to three meters and the extension of 4.8 kilometers into the Chetumal Bay to obtain a sea passage with a total length of 6.3 kilometers.

According to the officials, once complete – the Zaragoza Canal will connect the state capital with Xcalak.

The project is being carried out in coordination with the Ministry of the Navy and state agencies including the Ministry of Environment (SEMA), Ministry of Finance and Planning (SEFIPLAN) and the Integral Port Administration of Quintana Roo.
