KOCHI: A writ petition seeking a directive to complete the construction of the proposed six-lane Vyttila flyover, in consultation with the Kochi Metro Rail Limited(KMRL)and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), was filed before the Kerala High Court on Wednesday.

The petitioner Francis Manjooran submitted the study conducted by different agencies had found the construction of the flyover at Vyttila could decongest the traffic at the junction, considered one of the busiest in the state.

Considering the importance of the Vyttila junction, the KMRL had suggested a plan for the development of Vyttila by decongesting it. However, the authorities were unable to decide on the location of the flyover owing to the lack of clarity regarding the construction.

According to the petitioner, despite spending a whopping Rs 10 crore on preparing the three study reports,the government was now planning to conduct another study.

The foundation stone for the project was laid by the then Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in February 2016.
