Minister promises steps to ease traffic congestion in Kannur city

Public Works and Tourism Minister P.A. Mohamed Riyas has said that immediate steps will be taken to reduce traffic congestion in Kannur city and surrounding areas. He was speaking at a meeting of people’s representatives and officials on Wednesday.

The Minister said that Kannur is a district with immense potential in the field of tourism.

He said the ongoing projects, including the Malabar River Cruise Tourism project, will be completed soon.

MLAs who attended the meeting said that steps should be taken to expedite the completion of ongoing projects such as airport roads, hill highways, KSTP roads, construction of bridges and land acquisition.
