Flyover, roads on Thiruvananthapuram Medical College to open by May

A flyover and the roads included in the first phase of the comprehensive master plan for the facelift of the Thiruvananthapuram Medical College are likely to be operational by the second week of May.

The first phase comprises the development of roads leading to the medical college, besides those on the campus. Infrastructure Kerala (Inkel) is implementing the ambitious Rs 717 crore project to make the medical college a centre of excellence. The project was envisioned by the state government in 2018, with Kerala Infrastructure Investment Fund Board (KIIFB) funding.

A top Inkel official told the media that all the infrastructure work incorporated in Phase-I has been achieved with some finishing remaining.

The work of the 340-metre long 12-metre wide flyover has already been finished, including painting work, and it is ready to open to the public. Besides, five roads inside the campus have also been constructed with proper signage. The finishing work will be completed within a week, the official said.

The flyover begins from the men’s hostel on the Kumarapuram side and takes different roads to the casualty and the OP block.

The project is being implemented at Rs 33.48 crore. The roads have been built with proper signage, name boards, and other traffic signs to provide vehicles and pedestrians with smooth movement. Once the roads are operational, the heavy rush in front of the main gate can be avoided, said the official.

Meanwhile, the second phase of development has also started with the initial work – including the installation of CCTV cameras and the replacement of lab machines progressing.

The main work in the second phase is the demolition of the old building, including the operation theatre.

The official said that the authority is waiting for clearance from the Airport Authority of India (AAI) to build new buildings after demolishing the old buildings.

The master plan, envisaged in three phases, will provide modern medical instruments and facilities, including new complexes, all constructed in an environment-friendly manner. It is designed to accommodate development initiatives that may happen in the next 25 years, said the official.
