NHAI directed to repair Kerala highways within a week

The Kerala High Court directed the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) to complete the repair works of the roads in the state under it within one week. Justice Devan Ramachandran, who was hearing a case taken up by the court on its own over the potholes on national highways, directed the District Collectors to act proactively in the matters of poor roads in their districts.

The High Court took up the case on its own after a recent incident in which a man riding a scooter lost his life when his bike fell into a pothole at Nedumbassery near here.

The court said the District Collectors have a responsibility under the Disaster Management Act as the head of the District Disaster Management Authority. Meanwhile, the NHAI told the court that it was initiating steps to repair the roads on a war- footing.
