Land acquired for four-lane, says MP

Staff Reporter

Project will cost Rs. 750 crore

Nagercoil: The government has acquired 150 hectares of land for laying a four-lane road between Kanyakumari and Thiruvananthapuram, according to J Helen Davidson, MP.

She told The Hindu here on Saturday that the work would be commenced at the earliest. The project would be implemented at a cost of Rs.750 crore.

Third tender

The tender had been floated twice, and since there was no response, it has been decided to call for the tender for the third time.

One could reach Thiruvananthapuram from Nagercoil within 45 minutes after the implementation of the project. The vehicles would travel through Adaikkakuzhi (Kerala border), Ponnappa Nagar Junction, Kappikadu, Palliady, Parakkadi, Pookadai, Mylodu, Thuckalay-Eraniel Road via Alvarkovil, Paraseri-Villikuri Road via Konnakuzhivilai, Thottiyodu-Kalliankadu road via Paraiyadi, Balamore Road, Putheri Kulam, APTA Market, Vazhukkamparai, Pottaiyadi, Vadakkanpattu and reach Mahadhanapuram (National Highways 7).

Steps would be taken to ensure that the road does not disturb agricultural land or irrigational tank. As demanded by some, whose land had been acquired, the compensation amount would be enhanced.

She said that she had submitted a memorandum to Union Minister for Railways Mamta Banerjee to operate a daily night train from Kollam to Velankanni via Nagercoil and Tirunelveli, Nagercoil – Bangalore daily train service, Kanyakumari – Mangalore daily train service and Kochuveli-Chennai Egmore Express via Thiruvananthapuarm, Nagercoil, Tirunelveli, Madurai, Tiruchi, Thanjavur, Myladuthurai, Seerkazi, Chidambaram, Cuddalore and Panruti, said Ms. Davidson.
