#SICT.- The Ministry of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation (SICT) reports that during the current six-year term, 417 labor roads will be built in 10 states of the country: Oaxaca, Guerrero, Chihuahua, Hidalgo, Sonora, Tlaxcala, Veracruz, Durango, Nayarit and Puebla.
Its extension will be equivalent to going from Chetumal, Quintana Roo, to Tijuana, Baja California, since the goal is to cover 4,144 kilometers (km), which will be developed with an investment of almost 19 billion pesos (million pesos) to benefit 2.3 million inhabitants and generate 71,000 direct jobs.
During this six-year term, the right of people to move and communicate in conditions of safety, accessibility, efficiency and quality is one of the priorities.
For this reason, through the labor roads program implemented by the Government of Mexico, in addition to improving connectivity between communities in the region, it brings schools, health, work and commerce centers closer to families so that, without distinction, they have access to more and better opportunities for development and wellbeing.
It is aimed at communities of medium, high and very high marginalization, through the granting of subsidies for the paving of roads that give access mainly to the municipal capitals. The construction of these roads employs the labor of local men and women under a participatory scheme, through which resources are transferred directly to the local authorities of the municipalities.
