Major works to commence only in December: Mayor

Kozhikode: Basic repairing on arterial roads in the city will begin on Sunday. A sum of Rs. 85 lakh had been allotted for the purpose, Kozhikode Mayor M. Bhaskaran said here on Saturday.

Addressing a news conference, Mr. Bhaskaran said that minor repair works would be carried out at major junctions including Stadium and Mananchira. The delay in commencing repair works was on account of rain. Materials for the work had also been kept ready, the Mayor said. However major road repairing would be carried out only in December. Some of them and road-widening works would be done with the funds of the Kerala Sustainable Urban Development Project, Mr. Bhaskaran said.
