The Supreme Court has set aside a Kerala High Court judgment which directed the Government to conduct a load test before demolishing the Palarivattom Flyover on the National Highway in Ernakulam. It is very difficult then to say that the Government, in accepting Expert Committee Report, could be said to have behaved arbitrarily. Justice RF Nariman led bench noted. The Kerala High Court had, while considering a batch of writ petitions, directed the Government to conduct a load test of the Palarivattom flyover through an approved qualified agency capable of conducting such a test, with notice to all the stakeholders.
