Driving times from the Puerto Vallarta International airport to the Southern Shores of Banderas Bay will be reduced considerably if Semarnat gives Mexico’s Communications and Transport Ministry the go ahead on a 32.8-kilometer ring road from Las Juntas to Boca de Tomatlan.

According to a recent article in the Guadalajara Reporter:

A bypass skirting Puerto Vallarta came one step closer to reality after Mexico’s Communications and Transport Ministry (SCT) asked environmental authorities for permission to begin construction.

The 32.8-kilometer ring road will run from near the Vallarta airport at Las Juntas to the north of Boca de Tomatlan. The SCT justifies the expensive project, saying that keeping heavy north and southbound traffic out of the city center will improve the quality of life and environment in the tourist resort.

The Environment Secretariat (Semarnat) will have until August 19 to emit a decision on whether the libramiento should go ahead. The agency is expected to carry out a complete study on the impact the highway will have on local fauna and flora.
