National Highway 183A, also known as NH 183A, is a National Highway in the Indian state of Kerala that runs from Titanium Junction(Kollam Metropolitan Area), to Vandiperiyar via Adoor and Pathanamthitta.[2][3] It is the 4th National Highway passing through the Kollam district.

Elevation to National Highway[edit]

The road was declared a National Highway (NH) on 4 March 2014. It conforms to NH standards for a two-lane traffic highway from Adoor to Plapally. The section past Plapally is only 4 meters wide and passes through forest and wildlife areas. The Forest Department raised concerns over the road's alignment. Once upgraded, a new connection from Vandiperiyar to Sabarimala is planned.
