Thiruvananthapuram City Improvement, India
Population density gives a strong push to improve infrastructure in India as that is the engine of each economy. The scientists are clear about it, the more you build new roads, the more obstacles will be in the way: more CO2 emissions, more environmental issues. The Indian state of Kerala faced infrastructure problems when the roads were too narrow and traffic increased which thus caused a threat to the state economy. At the same time Kerala had a budget deficit
Concessions between the Kerala Road Fund and the Thiruvananthapuram Road Development Company Limited, with the financial assistance of IL&FS Transportation Networks Limited, became a way out which not only resolved an infrastructure issue but provided a high-quality road that addressed CO2 emissions and environmental issues with the planting of trees and other measures, such as the capturing of water, which makes it a multi-use project
SDG 9: Infrastructure improvement by investments in the Thiruvananthapuram road empowered the Kerala community
SDG 11: The growing vehicle density was resolved by the project
SDG 13: The improvement of the environment with the planting of 2200 trees and the absence of traffic congestion has been achieved, in spite of the phenomenal increase in the number of vehicles on the road
