Providing relief to the residents of Eroor from the Constant   traffic woes, land acquisition for the construction of Railway Over-Bridge  (ROB) is expected to commence by the end of January.

Deputy Collector (land acquisition) M Latha told City Express that the  Revenue Department has submitted a detailed project report before the State Government’s high-level committee.

“As per our estimation, a total of 76.82 cents of land should be acquired for the ROB at Eroor. We will start the procedures after getting the nod from the high-level committee,” Latha said.

She added that a meeting has already been scheduled by the high-level committee to discuss and analyse the plan designed by the Land Acquisition  Department. 

“The meeting will be held on January 15. The members of the high-level  committee, including chief secretary, members of the Revenue, Finance and   Public Works Department will take part. We hope to get the sanction to   commence the land acquisition. Thereafter, by appointing a land acquisition officer, we are planing to complete the acquisition process quickly,” she said.

Meanwhile, Tripunithura Municipal chairman R Venugopal said the municipality will provide rehabilitation for those who have to surrender their land for  the ROB with the help of the State Government. 

“Nearly 17 shops are running at the proposed area of the ROB. They will have to give up their land. As per the current rehabilitation package, the shops will be shifted to another place allotted by the state government. The alternative buildings will be constructed by the municipality. Sufficient funds have already been allocated in the municipal budget for the purpose.  We hope the overall construction of the ROB will completed this year itself,” the chairman said.
