The update of the PMDUBJ responds to international policies as is the case of the New Urban Agenda UN-HABITAT III, approved in October 2016, of which Mexico is part and has endorsed the commitment to transform cities making them more inclusive, compact and connected to each other; through planning and urban design, governance, legislation and urban economy, creating a link between urbanization and development. Based on the axes of UN-Habitat,the New Methodology for the Elaboration and Updating of Municipal Urban Development Programs, as well as the New General Law of Human Settlements,Territorial Planning and Urban Development, in which the principles of the right to the city, equity and inclusion, protection and progressiveness of public space, resilience, environmental sustainability and mobility, among others, stand out, the compact city model is proposed for the development of Benito Juárez.

These are the Luis Donaldo Colosio Boulevard and the Airport Distributor, which together generated more than 2,000 direct jobs and more than 8,600 indirect jobs. These works will benefit more than 20 million tourists and 1.3 million in habitants of the region.
The head of the SICT said that the rehabilitation of the Luis Donaldo Colosio Boulevard and the modernization of the Airport Distributor were inaugurated two months ahead of schedule, thanks to the hard work of the team and the commitment of the construction companies.

The transportation will be a minibus that will use the internal roads of the airport, going around the perimeter of the terminal in acircuit of "no more than 20 minutes" to reach the railway terminal,currently under construction.

Thousands of tourists arriving at the Mexican Caribbean Air Terminal will be able to transfer without any problem to the Tren Maya station,which will allow them to continue on their way to other points in southern Mexico, thus benefiting them while continuing to generate more employment in the identity.
