Just as rail blockades end in one country, they resume in another.
On the same day Canadian protestors in Quebec ended an almost month-long blockade [see “Trains News Wire Digest for Friday, March 6“], Kansas City Southern has informed customers that protests are once again disrupting operations on Kansas City Southern de Mexico, as well as other railroads.
For KCS de Mexico, protests are blocking the main line between Uruapan and Morelia in the state of Michoacan, disrupting service to the Port of Lazero Cardenas. The railroad says it is arranging detours where available, communicating with state and federal governments to urge a resolution, and pursuing legal remedies.
Previous protests have been staged in the same area several times in 2019 [see “Protesters block KCS de Mexico mainline in Mexico,” Trains News Wire, Sept 12, 2019], leading the railroad’s president to call for jail terms for those responsible [see “KCS de Mexico President: Whoever blocks railways should go to jail,” Trains News Wire, Dec. 27, 2019].
