K-Rail will build 27 railway overbridges in Kerala, Railway Board gives approval


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Railway Board has given permission to the Kerala Railway Development Corporation (K-Rail) to construct flyovers at railway level crossings at 27 places in the state. The state government and the Union Ministry of Railways had given permission on July 9, 2021, for the construction of flyovers at level crossings in Kerala. On September 1 last year, K-Rail was given permission to build five flyovers.

The flyovers that were given permission in the first phase are- Palli Gate/Church Gate between Puthukkad and Irinjalakuda, Thripakudam gate between Ambalapuzha-Harippad, Pattikad gate between Angadipuram-Vaniyambalam, Nilambur yard gate and Ezhimala gate between Pazhayangadi-Payyanur. The social impact study prior to acquiring land for seven flyovers, including these five, has been completed and the reports have been submitted to the respective district collectors. The construction permit for the remaining 22 flyovers has now been obtained.

The cost of construction of the flyovers will be borne equally by the Railways and the state government. The railway overbridges are a major development project being implemented by K Rail in addition to the SilverLine project.
