Demand for flyover at Eravipuram

By Our Staff Reporter

KOLLAM, FEB. 17. A mass movement demanding the construction of a flyover at the Eravipuram railway level-crossing in Kollam city is gaining momentum.

Hundreds of persons living in the area attended a meeting in this connection organised on Wednesday by the Eravipuram Janakeeya Samithy.

P. Rajendran, Kollam MP, inaugurated the meeting. In his address, he appealed to the people of Eravipuram to cut across party lines and extend full support to the Samithy's movement. N.K. Premachandran, Rajya Sabha MP, who was out of station, sent a message extending support to the movement.

Resolution

A resolution adopted by the meeting, while welcoming the line-doubling and electrification of the Thiruvananthapuram-Kollam sector, noted that Eravipuram would be isolated if the proposed flyover was not taken up.

Frequency

After electrification of the line, the frequency of train services would increase. Between Mayyanad and Kollam, there are more than 10 level-crossings.

This hampered Eravipuram's access to Kollam city, isolating the area.

The resolution pointed out that at present the level-crossing remained closed for six hours during the day.

The meeting elected the Eravipuram MLA, A.A. Aziz, as chairman of the Samithy and T. Devasya, as general convener.
