Kerala State Government have conveyed to the Union government that it is not willing to develop five National Highways (NH) in the State that are included in the National Highway Development Project (NHDP) Phase IVA and imposing toll on them. The State’s response has come in reply to a letter from the Secretary, Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, seeking the willingness of the government to develop NH 85 Bodimettu-Kundannoor, NH 744 Kollam-Kazhathuruthy, NH 766 Kozhikode-Muthanga, NH 966 Kozhikode-Palakkad, and NH 183 Kollam-Theni under the NHDP.

The Chief Minister said that many stretches of these NHs had two-lane carriageway and paved shoulders. What the State needed was the development of some of the stretches into four-lane ones where it was warranted and of the remaining stretches into two-lane ones with paved shoulders and proper sewerage facilities.
