Bnamericas Published: Wednesday, September 27, 2006
The transport and communications ministry ( SCT) in northern Mexico's Nuevo León state is planning to request 1.7bn pesos (US$154mn) in next year's budget to spend on highway projects, local SCT head Raúl Cadena was reported as saying by daily El Norte. If approved by legislators, the funding would represent double the amount invested this year, Cadena said. The bulk of the money would be used to continue projects already underway, including the Libramiento Noroeste bypass, widening the Carretera Nacional highway and works on the road to Miguel Alemán. The budget would also provide 200mn pesos to carry out the first stage of the Libramiento Oriente, a new bypass designed for truck transport that will be the main project for the STC in the state in 2007. The road is planned to link the highway from Monterrey to Nuevo Laredo on the US border with the Carretera Nacional via the Cadereyta-Allende highway. The first phase of the Libramiento Oriente would include a 13km stretch between the Aeropuerto del Norte general aviation terminal and the Monterrey international airport.
