SC gives permission to reconstruct Palarivattom flyover

Kochi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday gave permission for the state government to reconstruct Palarivattom flyover.

The Kerala Industrial and Technical Consultancy Organisation (KITCO) had informed the Supreme Court that if the grids and slabs are demolished without conducting the weight test, the opportunity to test the flyover’s strength will be lost.

Refuting the submission, the state government has filed a rejoinder stating that KITCO is trying to derail criminal investigation process against its officers who were under judicial custody for a long period.
