Thiruvananthapuram: Residents of the Rajaji Nagar Colony at Oottukuzhy will soon have better roads, footpaths and drainage facilities.
The City Corporation on Tuesday launched a Rs.39-lakh infrastructure development project to improve living conditions in the colony.
The project will be taken up under the Community Infrastructure Fund of the Kerala Sustainable Urban Development Project (KSUDP). It involves the construction of 894 metres of concrete roads of three metre width, footpaths and 30 metres of drainage.
The function held on Tuesday evening to launch the programme was marred by heated exchanges between residents owing allegiance to rival political parties.
A section of residents raised slogans demanding water and electricity connection for the flats constructed in the colony.
