Kerala MP demands elevated route, underpass on NH-66

Member of Parliament from Kerala Hibi Eden has demanded that the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) must construct an elevated highway on the 16-km Aroor-Edappally NH-66 bypass and an underpass at Edappally to decongest the bypass and NH-544. He raised the demand at a meeting of NHAI officials and others convened at North Paravur this week to discuss the need to develop the NH-66 corridor through Ernakulam, which was encountering frequent traffic snarls. It will worsen as the Edappally-Muthakkunam-Ramanattukara NH-66 corridor is being developed as a six-lane stretch.

It will be in stark contrast with the much-busier NH-544 bypass that has only four-lane width in most places. This necessitates the need to build an elevated highway on the bypass and an underpass at Edappally. The NHAI must, in addition, build underpasses at busy junctions in the Edapally-Muthakunnam NH corridor, he said.
