  • Work on six-lane Vyttila flyover to begin on Nov 25

    Summary: The PWD will sign an agreement to build the ?86-crore Vyttila flyover with the Thiruvananthapuram-based Sreedhanya Constructions on November 18. The underpass at Vyttila, through which traffic will be rerouted once work begins on the flyover, is too narrow to handle the expected pressure. On Tuesday night, Mr. Safirullah inspected the Vyttila junction to have a first hand account of the movement of vehicles and pedestrians. The RBDCK will, in the meantime, begin work on the ?80-crore flyover at Kundanoor in December end. With piling for the six-lane Vyttila flyover set to commence on November 25, the traffic police and other stakeholders are expected to submit a report on traffic regulation to District Collector K. Mohammed Y. Safirulla on Wednesday.

    According to the Newspaper,Those from Thrissur will be diverted from HMT Junction through the Seaport-Airport Road. The police held a meeting on Tuesday to fine-tune plans to divert and regulate traffic. Officials of the NHAI, which owns the Edappally-Aroor NH Bypass, too are expected to chip in with help, since vehicles will have to be diverted through the underpass of the Vyttila bridge. The narrow underpass has been a cause for concern, since it can hardly accommodate two cars, leaving little space for pedestrians. Heavy vehicles can use the stretch only if an alternative, wider underpass is developed nearer to the railway lines beneath the bridge.
