IDEAM, S.A. is collaborating with “LAMAT Tramo 1” Consortium, led by Mota-Engil, in the detailed design of 3 composite (steel&concrete) viaducts with a total length of 5,270 m on Section 1 of the Maya Train, in Mexico.

After the completion of the detailed design of the New Boca del Cerro Bridge over the Usumacinta River (, also in Section 1 of the Maya Train, IDEAM SA is carrying out the detailes design of the viaducts:
– Tenosique, 2,920 m long
– Candelaria, 1,270 m long
