- The Centre’s cut in funding was a setback
- The level of tar dropped
- Construction defects due to road cracks
It was found that the thermoplastic paint and road studs to be used in the tarring were reduced. AM Arif had lodged the complaint when G Sudhakaran was the minister.
According to the Public Works Department, Arif’s complaint was investigated a year ago. The executive engineer says the MP is raising a complaint that was once investigated and then concealed the fact that it had been investigated before.
The reason for the road cracking during the monsoon season is the imperfection in the construction. The report also said that the Centre’s cut in funding was a setback. The estimate has been reduced from Rs 44.34 crore to Rs 41.7 crore.
Arif alleges irregularities in the reconstruction of 23.6 km of National Highway 66 from Aroor to Cherthala. Arif wrote a letter to Public Works Minister PA Mohammad Riaz pointing out this.
