Pazhakutty – Mangalapuram road

The road which connects Pothencode, Kallambalam, Kollam routes used to witness heavy traffic earlier. The renovations, including foundation of the bridge, road basement and drainage system based on a proper study of the geography of the area are progressing. 

The original project covers a total distance of 21 km passing through Mukkampalamoodu, Pothencode and Mangalapuram. According to an official from KRFB, the new road is being constructed at an increased height of 58 cm from the old road and the drainage is constructed at a width of 85 cm and a height of 75 cm.

Progress Made

The Pazhakutty – Vembayam road is the first phase of the project. KIIFB Approval granted and work order is issued. Land acquisition approved.

Next Milestones

As the road has a total of 17 culverts, each of it has to be demolished and destroyed according to the present width of 13.6 m. Among that, around 14 culverts will have to be started according to the completion of road formation works.
