THIRUVANANTHAPURAM (Metro Rail News): The Railway Board has given K-Rail the approval for the construction of 27 Railway over Bridges (ROB) which will help in tackling the traffic in the state. The construction of overbridges will be a major development initiative which will be executed by K-Rail, which is also implementing the SilverLine semi-high-speed rail project.  

Previously permission for 5 ROB was given last September. These are the Palli gate between Puthukkad and Irinjalakkuda stations; Thrippakkudam between Ambalappuzha and Harippad; Pattikkad between Angadippuram and Vaniyambalam; and the Nilamboor yard and Ezhimala gates between Payangadi and Payyannoor stations. Now, permission has been given for the remaining ROBs.

The social impact assessment, ahead of land acquisition, for 7 ROBs has already been completed for which reports were submitted to the respective district collectors as well. Other than 5 ROBs in the starting phase, SIA for the Uppala and Vellayil gates have also been completed. Tender proceedings are progressing for the Palli and Nilamboor yard gates. The ROBs’ construction is being carried out as per the MoU signed between the state government and the railway ministry last July. The construction cost of these ROBs will be handled equally by the state government and the Railways.
