Stating that no house would be vacated for the construction of the road, he directed the officials to conduct a survey at the earliest and also to  study the possibility of constructing the road without  scope for any eviction.

This parallel highway when completed will help local people and will also connect the Kerala-Karnataka highway. Private land would be acquired only if inevitable, Lobo said.

He  further stated that the state government has  sanctioned Rs 25 lakhs for the survey works and urged the National Highway Authority,  Revenue Department, PWD and MCC  to work in co-ordination and complete the survey works in minimum two weeks.

Addressing locals who greeted him, Lobo assured that  the project implementation would not inconvenience them in any way.
