In 1974 due to heavy traffic Government that time came with a proposal to construct a bypass via Karichi near Attingal. Since then various Government came with proposals to ease the traffic at Attingal, but nothing really happened. One can imagine the present situation of Attingal, as people wait for hours to cross the 4 KM stretch from Mamam to Poovanpara. The cause for these traffic blocks are because of a KSRTC Garage, a Municipal Bus Stand ,lack of parking space & unauthorized parking along the road etc.
We can hope atleast now, the authorities will take necessary steps to construct the Attingal bypass !
