Times Of India reported that Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a 13km highway bypassing Kerala's Kollam city that was in limbo for many decades. Addressing a jubilant crowd, he said infrastructure development had been the priority of his government, and the Kollam bypass is an example. He said the project got final sanction in January 2015 and now it has seen the light of the day. It will reduce travel time between Alappuzha and Thiruvananthapuram and decongest the traffic in Kollam city.

He said about 500km of the national highway had been added in Kerala since May 2014 and a detailed project report for the Mumbai-Kanyakumari corridor is under preparation.

The government is committed to ensuring timely completion of all projects, and he had reviewed more than 250 projects worth Rs1.2tn.

Highlighting the progress in road connectivity, he said the pace of construction in national highways and rural roads has almost doubled now.
