Kochi: To make space for hulking machines that will shortly begin to pound SA road for the Metro Rail’s Kadavanthra station works, the traffic police have advised motorists to take AL Jacob flyover and Subhash Bose Road to reach Vyttila.
The construction barricades have been causing traffic hold-up as the four-lane road narrows down to two lanes in front of GCDA office. “This can be prevented if cars and smaller vehicles use alternative routes to reach Vyttila. Delay can be avoided if people begin their trip earlier than usual,” said K.S. Baby Vinod, Assistant Commissioner of City Traffic Police.
Similarly, vehicles moving from Vyttila to MG Road can turn left at Elamkulam, take Chilavanoor Road and Ponneth Temple Road, enter Girinagar and Panampilly Nagar and gain access to South overbridge. Piling for the station will commence shortly at the site. Mr. Sreedharan also checked out the site near Ernakulam Junction railway station.
