National Highways' width

Thiruvananthapuram, June 22

The Association of Engineers, Kerala has expressed strong reservation against the move to reduce width of national highways to 30 metres during the next phase of highway development.On the contrary, six-lane roads would become inevitable in the near future if the growth in pattern in vehicle population is any indication, according to Mr R. Venugopal, President, and Mr V. V. Binu, General Secretary of the association. A meeting of its state committee was recently held in Kalpetta, where resolutions to this effect were passed. A 4.5-metre-broad centre median was inevitable for the safe movement of vehicles at 80-100 km/hour along the main path. Service roads, as also footpaths, have to be provided for on both sides to accommodate slow-moving traffic and pedestrians. — Our Bureau
