The Kerala Water Authority (KWA) will buy pipes worth Rs. 4 crore for the Guruvayur drinking water project.
A meeting held here under the leadership of District Collector M.S. Jaya and KV. Abdul Khader, MLA, discussed the technical hurdles in implementing the much waited drinking water project for Guruvayur.
Officials of various departments also participated in the meeting.
The work for laying pipeline after digging the road from Chettuva to Chavakkad has been delayed for years. The company which obtained the contract said it didn’t have enough money to buy pipes. To tackle the problem, the meeting chaired by the MLA asked the KWA to buy pipes worth Rs 4 crore for the company.
In the first phase, pipes will be laid after digging the road from Manjulal to Thahani junction. The officials were given strict instructions that the next phase of digging should start only after resuming vehicle traffic after completing the road re-tarring.
Guruvayur Municipality Chairman T.T. Sivadasan, water authority executive engineer Praveen; National Highway Executive Engineer Satheesh and others participated in the discussions.
