A committee constituted by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways held detailed discussions and carried out site visit to settle issues related to permissions required from National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) for the construction of the proposed Metro viaduct.

The committee consists of Project Chief Engineer (Ministry of Road Transport and Highways) Nahar, Director Projects KMRL Mahesh Kumar and Project Director Palakkad NHAI P Ramanathan.

The site visit was held along the Aluva- Edappally stretch of the national highway for the construction of the proposed Metro viaduct along the central median of NH 47 on the stretch.

Issues like the width of the road during the construction with barricading and the width of the road after construction of viaducts and the ways to ensure smooth traffic near the Metro stations on the NH were the key points of discussions.

“The discussions were positive and we are hopeful of finalising the matter very soon,” said Elias George, MD, KMRL.
