Plea to reconsider decision on road width

HIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The organisations of industries have asked the government to reconsider the decision to reduce the width of national highways in the State.

In a joint statement here on Friday, they contended that the reduction of the width of the highways from 45 metres fixed by the National Highway Authority of India to 30 metres would affect the progress of the State.

They felt that some sections which attached more importance to selfish interests than to the development interests of the State were behind the move.
