San Diego Mayor's Office proposes financial project for new transborder airport construction.
The mayor's office in San Diego has proposed a new project to finance the construction of a trans-border airport in North America that would use capital obtained locally and from Mexico and Spain. The plan is to expand the airport in Tijuana, Mexico to some 200m from the Californian border and to then connect it to the US via an access ramp. The expansion would give San Diego access to an international airport, which it cannot provide for itself because the existing Lindbergh Field in San Diego cannot be extended due to surrounding land use and the ocean. The Pacific Airport Group, which comprises Mexican and Spanish investors, has already indicated its interest in the project to the San Diego mayor according to Agencia EFE.
