Thuravoor-Pamba highway project faces roadblock

In Kerala, the first phase construction of Thuravoor-Pamba state highway has faced hindrances as defects have been detected in the construction of Thyckattussery bridge. The iron pillars that were installed for the bridge, were found bent. After this, Thuravoor-Pamba State Highway Formation Forum on October 28 approached the State government demanding an inquiry into the incident. It was in 2012, the State government began the construction work of Thuravoor-Pamba state highway's first phase. Rs 150 crore was also sanctioned for this purpose. The constructions of Thyckattussery Bridge and Makkekadavu Bridge have been included in the first phase. Construction of these two bridges is a must to to start construction of the state highway. Once the Thuravoor-Pamba state highway is opened, the transportation facilities especially cargo movement between coastal areas of Alappuzha and high-range areas will be improved.
