Guiengola, Tehuantepec: Address, Guiengola Reviews: 5/5
Isthmus of Tehuantepec will begin with investment of billion pesos
The centerpiece of the project is the modernization of a railroad between Salina Cruz, Oaxaca, and Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, that will significantly cut travel time between the Pacific and Atlantic ports and allow greater volumes of cargo to be shipped from coast to coast. Among the projects that the region has missed out on are a brewery, a sugar refinery, a rice processing plant and more recently, a massive wind farm project. Local activist Betina Cruz told Milenio that investors and the government consistently promise that large-scale infrastructure projects will bring economic and social benefits to isthmus residents but argued that many people remain without access to basic services. Community-owned land and the environment end up being collateral damage of the projects, she added. But the National Indigenous Congress and the Zapatista Army of National Liberation EZLN , among others, argued that the consultation was a simulation and that the rail project will go ahead regardless of the opinions voiced by local residents.

The ambitious project has been estimated to cost a total of 8 billion pesos, and will entail the modernization of existing port and railway infrastructure and the construction of a new stretch of rail. The whole project relies on the rail connection between both sides of the isthmus, and million pesos has been allocated to that end. An additional stretch of railway is to be laid to connect the transisthmus rail line to the port of Salina Cruz.
