Kerala to go for more rubberised roads, Sudhakaran says

June 7, 2017

rubberised-roadsThe Indian state of Kerala is pushing for the construction of more rubberised roads in order to increase the state’s use of natural rubber, said Minister for Public Works K. Sudhakaran.

The discovery that waste plastic could be used to reinforce asphalting of roads had given a new impetus to road development in the state, the minister said during the inauguration of the modernised office of the Aymanamgrama panchayat and declaring its ISO certification last month.

Sudhakaran also said that along with these two new options, the PWD had also decided to use coir Bhuvastra for strengthening the roads, a local news agency reported.

“These steps would go a long way in fighting the menace of plastic waste in the state and also strengthening the sagging fortunes for the traditional industries such as coir,” Sudhakaran said.

He said the department was in the process of mechanisation to speed up road development and maintenance works.“It has been decided to use imported German technology and machinery to this end,” he added.

Taking stock of the past one year of the LDF government, he said the government could do a lot to support Malayalam language and also the agriculture sector. K. Suresh Kurup, MLA, presided. VaikomViswan, V.N. Vasavan( both former MLAs) and others spoke on the occasion.
