KOCHI: Activists of the NH 17 Samyukta Samara Samithi prevented officials from carrying out survey at Edapally on Saturday, demanding that the Edapally-Moothakunnam stretch of the highway be widened to 30 metres using the already acquired land.

The samithi has for many years been opposing the NHAI demand that another 15 metres-wide land is necessary to convert it into a four-lane road.
