Tijuana BC.- Due to the serious traffic problems generated in the Santa Fe area, the Chamber of the Mexican Construction Industry (CMIC) made its experience available in the City Council, to prepare a traffic engineering study and prepare a solution in an expert opinion. .
In conversation with Eng. Gabriel Vizcaíno, president of the delegation of CMIC Tijuana, commented that the municipality recently carried out a citizen’s council among the residents of Santa Fe to decide on the future of the roundabout that was located there.
On behalf of the mayor’s office, Montserrat Caballero Ramírez, we offer to carry out a road traffic engineering to solve this problem, since in the CMIC we have road experts who have the equipment to make the guesswork”.
The president mentioned that the objective would be to prepare a formal study considering the regulations established by both the SCT (Secretary of Communications and Transportation) and the state government, in order to generate a more professional and technical solution.
He explained that the guesswork consisted of counting the number of vehicles, checking where they would go, which schedules are the most complicated, and determining the traffic engineering factors that would help drive the largest flows.
“I think this guess should be made for at least a week, we will be given an idea of the traffic, and after the municipal executive office will be in charge,” he said.
Lat Vizcaíno explained that the main problem in Santa Fe is the number of vehicles, so that the bypass was an option, although somewhat expensive, hence other solutions such as access roads should be developed.
Likewise, he considered that the use of land that can be changed in the territorial reserves still exists in the province could be another solution: to build industry, offices, schools, and so most of the people of Santa Fe do not have, as the community is called. born
“As an expert on the road, I can tell you that the built infrastructure is always overwhelmed by the growth of the city itself, because if a bridge is built, it will alleviate the problem at this time, but not for 10 years); therefore, what is required is to look for solutions from different angles, he said.
Finally, the leader of the CMIC Tijuana repeated to the Mayor Montserrat Caballero his offer to complete the task of studying the way of operation and to decide, based on the opinions of experts.
