Abstract: Our project deals with planning and proposal of a flyover at Kallumthazham which is located at the heart of Kollam , Kerala and will become the center of attraction by the coming of Kollam bypass. This place is one of the most accident prone areas in the city. To reduce the traffic congestion at the region, a flyover connecting the bypass in the Mevaram-Kavanad side of Kollam city is proposed. The flyover at the region is introduced using echo-technic road system. Echo- technic road system is mainly focused on move towards a green infrastructure. It is a concept of an integrated infrastructure based on the most innovative technologies adopted inorder to control global air pollution due to traffic as well as water logging on road surfaces. These technologies can hence promote smooth transportation at the junction with reduced accident rates. As for air quality treatment, the main solution is the treatment of pollutants as close to the sources as possible. Therefore photo catalytic materials can be added to the surface of pavement and building material. The pollutants are neutralized by the action of light and then gets washed away by rain. Hence air pollution due to traffic can be controlled. Particles get charged and then grounded which can be cleaned periodically. For the successful completion of the project, we have mainly conducted the site survey and feasibility study of the region. Also; both traffic and rainfall data were collected. We further conducted tests for controlling air pollution and also for water absorption. For water controlling measurements, pavements with filtering type nature is to be provided. To prevent water logging, the pavements should be laid with permeable layers which act as a water absorbing or filtration unit beneath the top layer and hence the water will not be accumulated as such on the road surface.
