The 12 works that the Puebla City Council will carry out, including the remodeling of 16 and 18 Oriente-Poniente, with the 160 million pesos that it will request as a credit line, will begin in October and would be ready in May 2023.
This was reported in an interview by the head of the Ministry of Mobility and Infrastructure, Edgar Vélez Tirado, who said that the start date of the projects is October 3, after which there will be a maximum of ten months, however, he foresaw let them be seven.
He said that in the case of Calles 16 and 18 Oriente-Poniente, in the Historic Center of Puebla, it is estimated that it will be between four and six months, where the hydraulic infrastructure and the restitution of the cobblestone will be intervened, so it will not be new.
He recalled that these two roads are in the section from 11 Norte to 5 de Mayo Boulevard; It is estimated that in others, such as 8, 10, 12 and 14 Poniente, the Agua de Puebla company will be in charge of replacing drainage and drinking water.
He explained that in total, of the 12 projects, seven are for drinking water and drainage, which include two wells in auxiliary boards, while the other five are re-lamination of streets.
He explained that in 16 and 18 Poniente, it is because the intervention of two streets is urgent and Agua de Puebla is waiting for the authorization of a line of credit to be able to carry out the actions that are required in the first square.
The secretary emphasized that the municipal government has the obligation to attend to drainage and drinking water , so this action will be independent of the work carried out by the Agua de Puebla company in another area of the Historic Center.
It is worth remembering that it was last Friday when in a Cabildo session it was approved that the Municipal Treasury initiate the process to acquire the line of credit for 160 million pesos, for which five banks will be invited and one of them will be chosen.
