    Essar Ports Project
    In its quest to improve the basic infrastructure across state, the state government in Kerala has decided to build 1,917 km road length as quickly as possible at an investment of Rs. 12,000cr. The targeted projects included completing the hill and coastal highway with a length of 650 km and 1,267 km respectively, Public Works Minister, G Sudhakaran said, adding that after receiving the report being prepared by Natpac, the work will start on both types of projects. According to initial estimates, the Hill Highway will incur a cost of Rs. 5,000-cr and the Coastal Highway Rs. 7,000cr. The decision on constructing the hill highway and the coastal highway was taken during a meeting chaired by the Chief Minister, recently. It may be recalled that Natpac has been entrusted with conducting a study on the technical, economic, and environmental aspects of the project. On this score, two committees have been formed for both highways, wherein, Additional Chief Secretary, PWD, Subrata Biswas will be the chairman of the hill highway committee and PWD Chief Engineer (Roads and Bridges) will be its convener.
