Works minister V K Ebrahim Kunju on Tuesday said the national highways in the state would be developed in 45 metres only. The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) had informed the government that it would not be able to develop the highways in 30 metres, he said.

“We proposed 30 metres in view of the hurdles in land acquisition. The NHAI said the state would have to take charge of the highways if the width is 30 metres. It is not possible for us to develop the highways and we have informed the ministry that we agree to the 45-metre plan,” he told a news meet.

The minister dismissed the chances of elevated highways, saying they are not feasible. “It can be done only in special cases.”

He said the KSTP phase II and state roads improvement projects were on track. On condition of roads after rain, he said a performance guarantee of three years has been imposed for bituminous macadam and bituminous concrete roads and five years for heavy maintenance roads.
