Two of the national highway projects—172-km Kazhakuttam-Cherthala and 111.73-km Edappally-Kuttipuram— in Kerala planned under the National Highway Development Project by the National Highways Authority of India have been stalled.

The projects are part of the four laning of the 318-km Thalapady-Kuttipuram national highway in three stretches. Land issues and opposition from villagers has stalled the four lane carriageway. The stretches also come under the 669-km Thalapady-Kaliyikkavila section on NH-66 and the 160-km Walayar-Edappally section on NH-544.

With these two projects not progressing in the state, the other ongoing projects on the 55-km Walayar-Wadakkancherry section, 22-km Wadakkancherry-Mannuthy section and 43-km Kazhakuttam-Inchivila section are expected to face challenges. Work has already started on four laning of Walayar-Wadakkancherry and Wadakkancherry-Mannuthy sections, while tenders have been floated for the Kazhakuttom-Inchivila section.

  1. IT IS VERY SAD THAT INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT IN KERALA ARE ALMOST STALLED DUE TO THIS KIND OF PEOPLE. IT IS MY OPINION THAT ALL HIGHWAYS MUST HAVE AT LEAST 45 M CORRIDOR IF NOT POSSIBLE 60M. ALL STATE HIGHWAYS MUST HAVE A CORRIDOR OF 30M MINIMUM AND LATERON WIDENED TO 45 M.
