Kerala govt begins work on Rs 20 bn corridor project

Work on the Rs 2,000 crore coastal corridor project to link Vallarpadam with Kozhikode in Kerala began with the state Chief Minister Oommen Chandy inaugurating it recently.

The corridor is expected to bring about tremendous development to the coastal belt and it involves upgradation of the existing Tipu Sultan Road.

The new corridor passing through the coast would promote the industrial, commercial, and tourism development of Ernakulam, Thrissur, Malappuram and Kozhikode districts.

Chandy said the comprehensive project would lift the coastal area between Kochi and Kozhikode to new levels of development.

The fishery development is also expected to get a boost from the project.
