Way to smoother traffic
LONG AWAITED: A view of the Maruthankuzhy bridge that was opened for traffic by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday. The bridge over the Killi river was envisaged two decades ago to ease the traffic congestion at the Maruthankuzhi junction but delays, in the form of relocating water supply pipelines and acquiring land, put off its completion. The structure spans a length of 26.58 metres. Photo: S. Mahinsha
