Thiruvananthapuram: Minister for Law M. Vijayakumar said here on Friday that the construction of a new bridge at Maruthankuzhy would commence soon.
During a visit to the project site, he said the government had accorded administrative sanction for the new bridge and approved the Rs.7-crore estimate for the project.
A decision had been taken to relocate the pipeline carrying water to PTP Nagar. The pipeline had been cited as a major hurdle for the project, he said. “The relocation work is expected to begin soon. It is estimated to cost Rs.1 crore,” Mr. Vijayakumar said.
The Revenue Department would carry out a joint survey with the Kerala Water Authority (KWA) and the Department of Public Works on February 2 to identify encroachments on the project site, if any. The work schedule for construction of the bridge will be exhibited for the public to view, he said. KWA Chief Engineer R. Sukumaran and PWD Assistant Executive Engineer Chandrakumar were present.
