He said the project works are in the final phase and are expected to be completed by January end. Traffic will be allowed on Thokkottu  flyover by December end, he said.

He also cited various factors that led to the delay. Nalin said the delay in shifting the Brahma Kalasha structure at Mahaveer Circle, the proposal to have a  bus terminus adjacent to the highway  proved hurdles to the NH works which though were initiated in 2010 picked up pace  only in 2016. Though the blue print of the NH was ready 15 years ago itself, the  bus terminus project at Pumpwell necessitated change in the same. The delay  in executing various processes by the state government, then  Deputy Commissioner and elected representatives all led to the delay in completion of the works, he said.

NHAI Project Director Samson Vijay Kumar and other staff of Navayug firm were present.
