Rains hinder ghat road repairs in TN's Nilgiris district

In Tamil Nadu, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) plans to complete the repair and maintenance works on the ghat road to the Nilgiris at the earliest. Though it started the works last month, rain in the Blue Mountains has slowed down the job. NHAI said that it planned to repair and strengthen the road for 114 km from Kallar to Kakanallah in three phases.

Rs 20 crore was sanctioned by NHAI for the project. The first phase was for 12 km from Kallar to Law’s Falls (Coonoor). Traffic to and from Udhagamandalam was made one way for a week in May to facilitate the works taken up by NHAI. With permission available for just the first and second phase, the NHAI continued with the works on the second phase (24 km) though there was two-way traffic flow on the road.
