Road to Sannidhanam needs repairs

Staff Reporter

PATHANAMTHITTA: Swami Ayyappan Road, lone ‘tractorable' route to the Sabarimala Sannidhanam from Pampa, is in a poor condition.

Though the Travancore Devaswom Board has submitted a project report and estimate of Rs.5.5 crore for widening the road to five metres from three metres eight months ago, the work remains a non-starter for want of mandatory clearance from the Kerala High Court, board sources said.

Inordinate delay

The poor condition of the road had led to inordinate delay in reaching materials for prasadom preparation and puja to the Sannidhanam during the previous festival season. Two workers were killed when a tractor carrying goods to the Sannidhanam along the ravaged road overturned in November 2010.
