Picture of Delhi Metro
Soon Junctions at Uloor, Sreekaryam and Pattom will be widened and developed as part of Metro rail project. The government has given administrative sanction to develop these junctions along with the widening of Kseavadasapuram-Kazhakootam Stretch.
The development will also include small by-lanes reaching the junctions. The decision to widen these junctions came when a study conducted by Natpac found that traffic congestion will be present even after Metro rail is implemented and development of junctions is the only solution. When the junctions are widened, vehicles from by-lanes will be able to commute smooth without messing with the regular traffic flow on the main road.
There will be double lane flyovers at Pattom and Sreekaryam and the pillars will be erected on the median of National Highway.
The plan for the development will be prepared within a week by DMRC. There will be double lane flyovers at Pattom and Sreekaryam and the pillars will be erected on the median of National Highway.The metro will run on pillars which are 1.6 Meter wide.
Stretch at Chempzhanathi-Poudsikonam road and Akkulam Road will be widened with a facility for a free left. There will be a 630-metre flyover.
