“The work on the four lane would start in the beginning of the next financial year,” the meeting was informed.

Decision will be taken on the revised alignment of Karamana bridge, Karakkamandapam and Pravachambalam junctions in a week.  The hearing would begin this month and the survey works would be completed by mid-December. The basic valuation report would be prepared and submitted to the state-level empowered committee with the district-level purchase committee’s recommendation by January. Detailed valuation statement would be passed and money for the acquired land would be handed over to the owners.

Acquisition would be completed by March and the government had allowed Rs 300 crore for this process. 

A high-level review committee and a executive committee headed by the special officer would assess the progress of the work every two weeks.

The meeting was attended by TRIDA chairman P K Venugopal, PWD secretary T O Sooraj, District Collector K N Satheesh, Balu Kiran, Rajamanikyom, Purushothaman and Pennamma.
