Suggestions for development of Trivandrum City
Four laning of Kazhakootam – Parassala Byepass and transforming it into the New National Highway 66. (Just like what had been done at Ernakulam and Trichur). Flyovers at Kazhakkootam, Technopark Jn , Chackai, Eanchakkal, and Kovalam. Underpass for Sreekaryam – Kulathoor – Kazhakkootam Road under the new highway. Four lane approach road to Vizhinjam Harbour (Proposed port site).
Four laning of Sreekaryam – Ulloor road. Flyover at Ulloor towards Medical college. Converting the old NH 66 Passing through the city as State Highway.
Flyover at Kesavadasapuram from Pattom St. Mary’s to MC Road (near MG College).
Construction of Sky-walk from Thampanoor Bus station to East fort City Bus station.
Flyover at Thampanoor RMS Jn. and Traffic Island at Thampanoor Railway Station Jn.
Four laning of Killipalam – Chenthitta – Power House – Pazhavangadi road. A traffic island at Chenthitta.
Modification of the unscientific Mettukada Jn. At Thycaud. Proper two laning of the road from Taj Vivanta Hotel to Thycaud W&C Hospital. Traffic Islands and widening at Thycaud Guest House Jn. Construction of footpaths.
More bus services through the Thycaud - Vazhuthacaud – Vellayambalam stretch.
Reconstruction of old Bus shelters at East fort. Two lane Bus Bay in front of Putharikandam Maidan. Flyover at Pazhavangadi Jn. connecting MG road, so that vehicles need not wait there at the traffic island waiting for the signal. Vehicles from Pazhavangadi can easily pass under the fly over to other roads.
Numbering of Bus routes isn’t practical at present. People aren’t aware of the route nos. So Bus shelters at Important bus stops displaying the route nos. in large bold letters is practical. Also the bus should display large route no. boards at its front.
Four laning of road from Karamana to Pravachambalam.
A two lane flyover at Medical College Jn.
Circular Bus services (Blue line, Red line, Green line, Yellow line) after 8 o’clock evening to 12 o’clock night as shown below.
1. Blue line – Eastfort- Thampanoor- Bakery jn.- Vazhuthacaud- Edapazhinji- Pangode- Thirumala- Valiyavila- Maruthankuzhi- Vellayambalam- Kowdiar- Nanthancode- Palayam- East fort.
2. Red line – East fort- Palayam- General Hospital- Pallimukku- Kannammoola- Medical College- Ulloor- Kesavadasapuram- Pattom- PMG- Museum- Vellayambalam- Vazhuthacaud- Thycaud- Thampanoor- Eastfort.
3. Green line- East fort- Perunthanni- Eanchakkal- Valiyathura- Airport- All Saints- Chackai- Karikkakom- Kochuveli- Technopark- Kazhakkootam- Karyavattom- Sreekaryam- Ulloor- Medical College- Murinjapalam- Pattom- Palayam- East fort.
4. Yellow line – Thampanoor- Bakery- Vazhuthacaud- Vellayambalam- Sasthamangalam- Maruthankuzhi- Vattiyoorkavu- Peroorkada- Kudappanakkunnu- Mukkola- Mannanthala- Kesavadasapuram- Ulloor- Medical College- Kannammoola- Pattoor- Vanchiyoor- Kaithamukku- East fort- Thampanoor.
All the above services must be carried out in special Semi low floor buses with fluorescent bands of respective colours stuck on them (Instead of route nos.).
All the above goals can be successfully (That’s what I hope!!!) reached here only if we have enough fund. My only opinion and request is to kindly suspend the monorail project, which is of very little use to our city and utilize that 4000 crores to develop the essential needs of City dwellers.
