In Kerala's Angadippuram railway gate area the issue of traffic congestion will soon be resolved as the Roads and Bridges Development Corporation (RBDC) is expected to begin the work on the railway overbridge (ROB) at Angadippuram, on the National Highway 213. RBDC has submitted the general arrangement drawing (GAD) for the final approval of the railways.
Railways has already informed the State government that the project would be given final approval once the GAD is submitted. The railway gate on the Nilambur-Shornur route witnesses frequent traffic snarls. This has been causing trouble to motorists in the Kozhikode-Palakkad route.
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MRTH) had granted approval for the project, which was awaiting nod for more than six months, in August. The DPR of the two-lane ROB was prepared by Kitco, after a detailed survey by the revenue department and National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), amid protest from locals.
