The project has been awarded under the Rebuild Kerala Initiative
The US-based Louis Berger has been awarded the project to design redevelopment of roads in Kerala damaged during 2018 floods.
The project, under the ‘Rebuild Kerala Initiative’, will be implemented through Kerala State Transport Projects (KSTP).
The objective is to redesign around 250 km damaged roads as all-weather resilient roads. The Rebuild Kerala Initiative was started with an aim to give robust shape to infrastructure of the state.
