Mexican Judge OKs Construction in Historic Area of Capital

MEXICO CITY – A judge gave approval to the resumption of work on the Metrobus transit system in a historic zone of this capital after Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) supplied the necessary permit, the Judiciary Council said Thursday.

Federal Judge Fernando Silva Garcia lifted the injunction he had imposed on June 9 in response to a motion filed by the Mexican Academy of Environmental Law, which cited the municipal government’s failure to secure prior approval from INAH.

Mexico City’s decision to begin the work without INAH approval “generated legal uncertainty in respect to the safeguarding of the protected zones of Bosque del Chapultepec and Paseo de la Reforma,” the Judiciary Council said.

INAH granted authorization for the project on June 19 and the city asked Silva Garcia to lift his injunction.

The effect of Thursday’s ruling will be to allow the city to resume building the track and stations for Line 7 of the Metrobus system.

Construction must be carried out under the terms set by INAH: “zero damage to the essential protected areas and minimal intervention in the areas tangential or adjacent to Avenida Paseo de la Reforma, Bosque de Chapultepec, and its periphery, and the other moments there,” the Judiciary Council said.
