Railway overbridge ready at Payyannur in Kannur

In Kerala's Kannur region, the railway overbridge at Kotti, near Payyannur, has finally become a reality, and the State Chief Minister OommenChandy will open it for traffic shortly. Though the works of a major part of the bridge as well as the approach roads were completed in time, in March 2012, the commissioning of the bridge got delayed because of the delay in the work of the span over the railway lines, as they were waiting for the clearance from the Railway Safety Commission to get the work done.

Once the railway overbridge is opened, the approach roads could revolutionise the road connectivity from Ezhimala and other western parts of Payyannur with the National Highway.

The flyover, which cost over Rs 15 crore, has been constructed in 'Y' shape. While one is connected to the road to Ramanthali, which leads to the Indian Naval Academy (INA) Ezhimala, the other goes towards Trikkaripur. Once opened for traffic, the authorities will also start collecting tolls from the vehicles passing through this flyover.
