Marina del Pilar toured Colonia Altiplano and spoke with the community of this neighborhood to find out their needs firsthand

The governor of Baja California, Marina del Pilar went to Colonia Altiplano in the eastern zone of Tijuana where she spoke with its residents in order to find out and learn more about their needs. During her tour, the governor offered direct aid to families, seniors, as well as people with disabilities and students. In addition, she offered free medical assistance to the entire community of Altiplano.

As part of her activities, Marina del Pilar spoke with all neighbors, recorded their requests, and offered the diverse services of the state government to promote the wellbeing of all people, especially those who need it the most.

“We came here to assist citizens of this entire Tijuana zone. We are working with our heart above all with a government which is all about actions, not staying in an office. That is why we are going, home by home, to the neighborhoods of Baja California,” she said.

The Secretary of Health of Baja California, J. Adrián Medina Amarillas, was present and he highlighted the presence of a Health Mobile Unit for consultations and medical care for people who need it and haven’t had a chance to go to the hospital.

For his part, the Secretary of Wellbeing, Netzahualcóyotl Jauregui Santillán, pointed out that the instruction by Governor Marina del Pilar is to listen and resolve the needs that are a priority, through programs such as the Violet Card for women heads of families, delivery of basic baskets, the Ilumina tu día program, among others.

Regarding public projects at Colonia Altiplano by the State Commission of Public Utilities of Tijuana (CESPT), Director Víctor Daniel Amador Barragán pointed out that they are introducing drainage, sewage, and approximately 35,000 cubic meters of a network of potable water, while also working on requests from all citizens.

In addition, the Secretary of Infrastructure, Urban Development, and Territory Redesign, Arturo Espinoza Jaramillo, spoke about the projects carried out by the agency he leads in order to make key roads more efficient in this municipality; all part of the RESPIRA program promoted by the state government. One of them is the Casa Blanca bridge at Corredor Tijuana-Rosarito 2000, which will allow Casa Blanca Boulevard to be unclogged of traffic, as it is an important access point to Tijuana that connects to the metropolitan zone.

Espinoza Jaramillo stated that this project, which has an investment of around 250 million pesos, is moving forward as planned. It is estimated that the surface of the upper part of the bridge will conclude in the first week of March, and at the end of March, the necessary excavations will take place in order to begin with the overpass. According to what’s scheduled, this part of the project should be finished in July so that work on the lower part can begin.
