KOCHI: The Kerala High Court has directed the State government to specify which agency was entrusted to construct flyover at Vyttila junction. The government has also been asked to check whether the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is ready to take up the project.

The court issued the directive while seeking the government’s view on a petition filed by Vyttila-native Francis Manjooran, demanding an order to have the flyover built by September 2017, as announced earlier.

The government in an affidavit said most probably the Vyttila flyover would be constructed by the NHAI. “Construction of the Vyttila and Kundannur flyovers is under the consideration of the NHAI, while the DMRC and the Roads and Bridges Development Corporation of Kerala have already completed the Edappally and Palarivattom flyovers, respectively,” stated the affidavit.

“The Vyttila flyover has been included in the NHAI’s proposed project to build a four-lane road from Vengalam in Kozhikode to Thuravoor, via Edappally. The government has taken up the matter with the NHAI on multiple occasions, and is awaiting a favourable response,” stated the affidavit.
