The TRIDA will hold talks with the traders at Thakaraparambu regarding the allotment of new shops on Central theatre road, where they are getting shifted. The traders would be asked their preferences, nature of trade and other details before allotting them the new shops, TRIDA Chairman P K Venugopal said.
‘’The electrification works are set to be completed soon. In two weeks, we will start discussions with the traders after which only the rehabilitation will be initiated,’’ he said.
As many as 32 shops, including five double room shops, have been constructed along the Central theatre road for the rehabilitation of traders. The traders will be rehabilitated as part of the ongoing works of Thakaraparambu flyover. Since piling works are progressing on the Power House road, the traders on the Power House-MG Road stretch will be shifted in the coming days.
Rehabilitation of traders was one of the major hurdles for the works of Thakaraparambu flyover. Traders will be temporarily shifted to the shops on the Central theatre road. TRIDA plans permanent rehabilitation of traders at the shopping complex planned on the compound of Government Central HSS, Attakulangara.
As many as 45 traders from Power House road, MG Road and Thakaraparambu will be shifted to the Central theatre road.
Issues Yet to be Resolved
As the traders on Power House road are gearing up to get shifted to the temporary sheds constructed by TRIDA along the Central theatre road, some issues are worrying them. Absence of a main line for water supply and drainage on the Central theatre road will be the major issues causing concern for them.
Recently, the traders had met Health Minister and local MLA V S Sivakumar and submitted a petition to sort out the issues. Also, they sent applications to the executive engineer of sewerage division Pattoor and executive engineer of Water Authority at Kuriathy division.
“Absence of main water line would be a major problem. As the shops are getting ready, it would affect the regular operations of the shops,” said Ravikumar, a trader on the Power House road.
