Is there any drawing available on how the stadium will look like, after construction of the grand stand? A very wrong place for an international stadium.. Ideally they should have identified space on Paroppady - Parambil Bazar road.. There are lot of vacant spaces available there..Reconstruction of Grandstand of corporation stadium begins
Have any one of your immediate friends and family studied in Silver Hills. Make this suggestion to them and see their reaction. The region below the foothills of the Police Kunnu gets inundated in water every rainy season.Is there any drawing available on how the stadium will look like, after construction of the grand stand?

My dear friend, I have studied in Silver Hills.. I was not talking about bring down a hill and constructing a stadium.. One whole side of the road are open areas (erstwhile paddy fields) where a few townships have come up.. If we construct an international stadium there, the whole area will get a facelift and more importantly downtown Calicut and Mavoor road will get decongested.. As a second step, Moffusil stand should also be shifted from Mavoor Road to somewhere near Medical College.. The road from Medical College to Mavoor will be an ideal place for that.. Monorail can start from there as well..Have any one of your immediate friends and family studied in Silver Hills. Make this suggestion to them and see their reaction.

During one of the floods in the 1990's the whole area was evacuated by the Army.
I would vouch to build a stadium at the site of one of the hills that is brought down for construction activities. the entire eco system of the place would have damaged already anyways.
