Shashi Tharoor – MP, Congress leader:
Called on Minister Nitin Gadkari to raise personally issues relating to
(1) toll collection on a yet-to-be-completed NH bypass in my constituency, &
(2) construction of service bridge at Thiruvallam, to light vehicle underpasses & an Outer Ring Road from Vizhinjam to Paripally.
Delighted to announce that Govt will issue a discounted pass to residents near the incomplete stretch of National Highway so they do not have to pay the full toll to use just four km of NH.
NHAI has also promised to finish the remaining 16km stretch by December 2021.
