Highway authority okays shifting of parking area, toll plaza

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has said it is ready to shift the truck parking area from Kanjiramkulam village and the toll plaza from Chenkal village if alternate land is made available.

The NHAI has come up with the offer following the intervention of Union Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor and George Mercier, MLA, in the wake of protests from residents of the two localities.

The NHAI Project Director said in a press release that they were temporarily withholding the notification under the NH Act to acquire land.

About 13 acres of land is needed for setting up the truck parking area and another 6 acres for the toll plaza.
