KERALA: Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, is all set to visit Kerala on January 15, 2019, to attend various events in Kollam and Thiruvananthapuram, including the inauguration of Kollam bypass on NH-66.
The Kollam bypass is a 13 km long 2 lane bypass, with a project cost of Rs 352 crore. It includes three major bridges over the Ashtamudi Lake, having a total length of 1540 metres. This project will reduce travel time between Alappuzha and Thiruvananthapuram, and will also decongest traffic in Kollam town.
In Thiruvananthapuram, the Prime Minister will visit the Padmanabhaswamy Temple. He is likely to unveil a plaque to mark the launch of some visitor facilities. In Kollam, Prime Minister Modi is also expected to hold a non-official public meeting.
