Enchakkal Junction

With roads from Kovalam, East Fort, Kazhakoottam and Vallakadavu meeting at Enchakkal junction, the junction experiences heavy traffic congestion. The service road doesn’t have enough width to handle the traffic.

The present traffic congestion at Enchackal junction is temporarily eased through traffic regulation. A flyover at Enchakkal, the busiest junction on the NH 66 bypass, has been a long-pending demand of the public and is seen as the only option to decongest the junction.


Progress Made

With the state government proposing a flyover at Enchakkal on NH 66 bypass to ease the traffic congestion at the junction, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will soon prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) on the project. NHAI officials said the DPR will be submitted within three months and further proceedings will commence afterwards. The project cost is estimated at Rs 200 crore.
