Laying the foundation for a new subway at Paramekkavu junction on Saturday, Mayor R. Bindu said the work would be completed within six months.

The other subways will be constructed at the District Hospital junction and the Naikkanal junction. The city has a single subway now at M.O. Road Junction in the Swaraj Round. Under KSUDP, the Asian Development Bank will provide funds for constructing the new subways.
