The Ernakulam Vikasana Samiti (EVS) held a dharna on Thursday near the North Railway Overbridge (RoB), in protest against the non-execution of a 200-metre approach road that leads to Pulleppady RoB. EVS president Laxmi Narayanan inaugurated the dharna. The samiti members said that the lackadaisical approach of the Kochi Corporation has led to the delay in construction. “As a result, the motorists are now forced to cover two km, instead of 200 m, to reach Pulleppady from Padma Junction. The vehicles have to take Veekshanam Road and Aragathu Road to reach the ROB,” he said.

He also noted that with construction work going on at the North ROB, vehicles are being diverted through Pulleppady ROB. “This has resulted in increased traffic on this stretch. To make matters worse, the corporation has not installed lights on the ROB,” said Lakshmi Narayanan.

He added that the corporation officials said that we will acquire land for the approach road soon as per the Transfer of Development Rights. “There are issues related to land acquisition. We hope it will be cleared soon. The approach road will also be constructed soon,” the corporation official said.
