When this State Highway is completed, This Route Will be a Shorter and Less Hilly Route to Reach Theni and Madurai in Tamil Nadu state from Cochin City. This Will bring developments to the High-Range (Hilly Region in Central Kerala) Regions of Idukki District as well as Easier, Shorter Way to Reach Thodupuzha Muvattupuzha and Ernakulam. This Route is Essentially a Hill Highway. The route connecting Udumbannoor and Maniyarankudi is still under construction. There is severe objection from the Forest dept since the 10 km route is through the forest land. Historically this SH is through the fort separating princely kingdoms of thekkumkur and vadakkumkur. After construction this will be the shortest and easiest access from high range heartland to reach Kerala townships of Thodupuzha, Kottayam and Ernakulam. There is a huge demand from people to complete the construction of this route immediately.
