Cancun has always been known for the majestic beauty of its shoreline and so has successfully begun the beach recovery project with an investment of more than USD $71 million dollars ($957 million pesos). The beach restoration project began on September 4th, 2009 with the delivery of more than two thousand tons of pipeline material to Cancun and the project will deliver(6.1 million cubic meters of sand to replenish Cancun’s Hotel Zone seashore. Although the beach recovery project has experienced some unforeseen delays due to the weather, it continues to advance successfully and it is already possible to to see a fantastic improvement. It is due to be completed on February 10th 2010.
The project has been funded by both federal and state governments, and between them both local participating municipalities and private investors will reinstate approximately 6.9 miles (11.1 kilometers) of Cancun’s coastline between Punta Cancun and Punta Nizuc, creating a spectacular beach oasis with a width of over 131 feet.
The projects’ main purpose is not only to replenish the sand, but to provide a long-term environmentally conscious result. A team of researchers studied a range of factors prior to the restoration initiation, such as the variety of cycles within climates that would provide the ideal moment to begin revitalizing the beautiful beaches of the state.
We will all look forward to seeing Cancun’s beaches restored to their former glory. For more information about this please visit http://cancun.travel/en/2009/12/04/cancun%e2%80%99s-beach-recovery-project-continues-with-great-progress/
