The rail over bridge (ROB) at Mooledom was opened to the public by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Friday. The Chief Minister said the controversy over toll collection at the ROB will be settled amicably without creating any burden for the local people. Two- and three-wheelers have been exempted from paying toll while a system to exempt the vehicles of local people would be evolved soon.
Welcoming the gathering, local MLA and Minister for Forests and Transport Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan said that of the two ROBs on which work began two years agao, the Mooledom ROB has been completed. The other one being under construction at Kumaranallore on the northern side of the town, would be completed this year itself, he said.
