Five new highways

Staff Reporter

KOCHI: The Roads and Bridges Development Corporation of Kerala will begin work on five new highways in the State in the next 18 months.

It will build multi-level car-parking facilities in cities where there is inadequate parking space. This is apart from 17 overbridges that it will build within March 2011.

The corporation’s highway projects include a 66.90-km four-lane west coast highway along the sea coast from Ponnani to Elathur. The project cost is Rs.1,671 crore. The people displaced along the coast will be resettled in houses/ flats built at fish-landing centres along the route, having community facilities. The road will reduce the distance between Kochi and Kozhikode by 40 km.

A 28.50-km Chertala-Kottayam tourist highway, an east-west corridor, is another project. It will increase the connectivity between Kochi and Kottayam. The highway will be extended to connect K.K. Road with Manarcadu.

The other projects include the second phase (14.9 km) of Ernakulam’s Airport-Seaport Road, linking Kalamassery with Kariyad on NH 47, and four-laning of the existing Airport-Seaport Road which links Irumbanam with Kalamassery HMT Junction. The fifth project, a Rs.203.90-crore, 27-km Thankalam-Kakkanad highway, will connect Kakkanad with areas lying further east in Ernakulam.
