Iconic area in Mexico City renovated with Cemex concrete

Cemex expects to supply over 27,000m3 of special concrete for the renovation of 15 streets in Zona Rosa, an emblematic area in Mexico City.

Since Zona Rosa is located among some of Mexico City’s major streets, including Insurgentes Avenue, Paseo de la Reforma and Chapultepec Avenue, the renovation project will promote the economic development of the area and the rest of the city.

Due to the area’s high vehicular and pedestrian traffic, the project posed a significant challenge for the companies involved in the construction. To replace the existing pavement with concrete solutions, eliminating bumps and imperfections in the roads, required replacing the drainage installation and relocating the entire fibre optic network.

“Our participation in projects that improve the quality of life for all Mexicans is one of our strongest motivations,” said Alejandro Vares, vice president of Sales to Infrastructure and Government, Cemex Mexico. “We are confident that, once the renovation of Zona Rosa is completed, thousands of people will benefit from this significant improvement.”

To enhance Zona Rosa’s appearance, Cemex developed architectural concrete pavements of integral colour and a special design for the sidewalks, featuring a hammered non-slip finish to ensure increased pedestrian safety.

Several of the roads under construction have recently been opened to the public, and it is expected that new streets will be opened during August. According to the local authorities, the renovation is expected to be completed fully in December 2017.
