The reason for the development deadlock is the delay in taking a decision on implementing the light metro proposal.
However, the state government has neither taken any initiative to proceed with the light metro project nor taken any decision on widening the NH stretch.
The revenue department has began land acquisition proceedings for three flyovers at Sreekaryam, Ulloor and Pattom and 19 light metro stations in the first phase.
When T’Puram Express contacted Sajeev S, superintendent engineer, PWD (NH), he said that land acquisition was under way.
For the last two years, we have been carrying out land acquisition as it is a difficult process.
