THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The work on the much-anticipated Thakaraparambu flyover is expected to start within a week. As TRIDA is going ahead with the work to rehabilitate the 40-odd traders now based on the Power House Road, the major hurdle before the work has been removed.

The Thiruvananthapuram Road Development Company Limited (TRDCL), concessionaire of the City Road Improvement Project (CRIP), has begun the preliminary works for the construction.

 “We have already started the preliminary works and are in the process of bringing inventories to the location. The works will begin in a week,” said TRDCL project director Anil Kumar Pandala.

 The flyover will be three-lane, bidirectional with a width of 12 metres. It will be a full-length grade separator with a height of 5.5 metres above the ground level. There will be 13 piers. The 512-metre road will connect Power House Road and Thakaraparambu. It will be the second flyover in the city after Bakery Junction Flyover, which connects Palayam to Panchapura.

 Around 40 traders will be rehabilitated temporarily in the shed being constructed by TRIDA on the Central theatre road. The traders will be later permanently rehabilitated in the shopping complex proposed on the compound of Government Central School, Attakulangara.

 Thakaraparambu flyover is part of the first Intermediate Ring Road which passes through Vellayambalam Junction, Thycaud, Choorakattupalayam, Power House Road (access to the southern entrance of the Railway Station), Thakaraparambu Road, Vazhapalli, Kavadi Road, Pettah, Naalumukku, Kannammoola, Law College, PMG, LMS and Museum Junction.

 The flyovers, along with the Palayam Underpass, are considered the major components of the road network development in the city for ensuring efficient and uninterrupted flow of traffic across MG Road.
