Minister of State for External Affairs V. Muraleedharan said here on Saturday that the State government was focussing on elevating two-lane roads into four-lanes and four-lanes into six-lanes while not exploring the immense possibilities of developing its waterways.

“The State can improve its transportation facilities by developing waterways. Instead, we are talking about expansion of highways,” he said in his inaugural address at the Kerala Science Fest organised by Swadeshi Science Movement at Marine Drive.
