Task force draft of Kerala road development policy 2009-21

Provision of adequate infrastructure is a prerequisite for sustained growth of economy and inherent to such growth is the need to ensure cost-effective movement of people and goods. An efficient road infrastructure is therefore an essential requirement. Over the successive five year plans, investment in road infrastructure has been increasing progressively in the state. Kerala has developed an extensive road network which provides connectivity to all settlements. This is an achievement few other states in the country can lay claim to. Government of Kerala has formulated a State Road Sector Policy which sets out the strategic direction to guide decision-making by various agencies involved in the planning, implementation and management of the road transport sector in the state.
