In order to decongest the entrance of Technopark in Kerala, the civic authorities will soon likely to start the construction of Technopark-Kazhakuttam road flyover. The 2.7 km long four-lane highway will provide hassle-free connectivity to the daily commuters who spend their most of the time in snarling traffic jams.
Earlier the length of the flyover was 1.4 km but later on, civic authorities has decided to increase the length by 2.7 km to end it at Kazhakuttam police station. In order to kick-start the work, the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has started construction on the earlier decided stretch i.e. 1.4 km from Technopark.
The flyover will also pass through NH-66 and NH-66 Bypass and will finally reach to Karode at Kerala-Tamil Nadu Border.
Elaborating on the same, a senior official said, “Work on land acquisition is still underway. Notices for the same have already been issued. It will take around three more months to complete the whole land-acquisition process. So, to stop any kind on delay, the authority officials have decided to start the work in phases.”
At present, Technopark is home to approximately 50,000 IT professionals of the city. It houses many leading MNCs and globally renowned IT companies like Allianz Cornhill Information Services, EYME Technologies, Infosys, Oracle India, Tata Consultancy Services, Tata Elxsi, Experion Technologies, etc.
Once operational, this will become the longest flyover in the city. And, hence will provide relief to these IT professionals who have cross Technopark-Kazhakuttam road daily to reach their offices on time.
