SourceThe Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB) will repair the Pampa-Sannidhanam Swami Ayyapan Road by concreting the badly damaged portions on a war-footing, Devaswom Minister Kadannappally Ramachandran has said.
The decision was taken at a meeting of various department heads and board officials convened by Mr. Ramachandran here on Saturday to review the arrangements for the annual Sabarimala pilgrimage.
Mr. Ramachandran said the government was bound to complete the repair and maintenance work on various roads leading to Sabarimala before November 15. He said special government permission would be ensured, if needed, for the time-bound completion of the work.
He said cooperation and coordination among various government agencies and the TDB were necessary for the smooth conduct of the pilgrimage.
An official representing the Forest Department informed the meeting that the department had not opposed concreting of Swami Ayyappan Road as in the case of the Marakkottom-Sannidhanam Chandranandan Road.
Mathrubhumi is/was/will be against development projects. They are of the same kind of Solidarity movement. They were dead against the express highway project too.Just one question... If some one has meaningful insight, would appreciate..
Why Mathrubhumi is dead against the road widening projects in Kerala??..
Even the latest reports appear seem to do more harm than good by saying "eventhough the centre has not approved the reccommended package by the state govt, they are going ahead with aquisition.."
KTC ,a major share holder of Mathrubhumi, will loss acres of prime land in Calicut and Kochi if they support widening highways inside these two CitiesMathrubhumi is/was/will be against development projects. They are of the same kind of Solidarity movement. They were dead against the express highway project too.
Sorry for my ignorance. But where is this Karamana-Kaliyikkavila highway and why is it not getting widened to 45 meters?Those who know the difficulty;they will support road widening and request for 45m.
- Pappancode Vikasana Samithy(The joint committee of Residential Associations,Social & Cultural Organisations) requested the Govt. to develop all the major junctions fro Karamana to Kaliyikkavila to be developed in 45m.
- FRAN requested the Govt. to extend the LA process upto Kaliyikkavila.
But Craps like these will always oppose that
- The Vyapari Vyavasayi Ekopana Samithi will conduct harthal on November 10(Today) from Pappanamcode to Kaliyikkavila.
Once the widening/NHAI project kicks off, NH-47 will bypass TVM city from Kazhakkoottam till TN border. This widening is of the "current" NH, which will no longer be a NH once the NHAI stuff gets done. The bypass will become the real highway.Sorry for my ignorance. But where is this Karamana-Kaliyikkavila highway and why is it not getting widened to 45 meters?
Karamana-Kaliyikkavila is a stretch in that part of old NH 47 which connects Trivandrum with Kanyakumari.Sorry for my ignorance. But where is this Karamana-Kaliyikkavila highway and why is it not getting widened to 45 meters?
