Kozhikode: Is it possible to leave Kozhikode without buying haluwa and chips? Is it possible to return without walking through the heart of Candy Street? The answer is no. Now the sweetness and sweetness of Heritage Street has increased. Hence the rush of ‘selfies’. Nida and her friends, who reached Kozhikode from Malappuram Kondotty, have no doubt.
The walls are full of SK Pottekkad’s characters who tell the story of the sweet city to the world, and the seats are in the shade of a friendly flowering tree. At Pudumodi, Mithaitheru, which caters to visitors, is now not only sleek but also safe. At a cost of Rs 6.5 crore, the tourism department changed the face of Mithaitheru and realized the need of the country for years.
This historic center of Malabar was inaugurated by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in December 2017. The need to upgrade this street is due to the occasional fire. The 30-year-old demand has not materialized for a number of reasons and is now being met.
As part of the renovation, fire hydrant valves were installed at nine locations along the street. Power lines and telephone lines were replaced by underground cables. The iron pipes used for water supply were replaced. Drainage has been upgraded. The sidewalk was paved with special tiles. Lanterns were installed to provide light. The seating arrangement in SK Square is a great relief to travelers and visitors alike. Traffic is restricted to maintain the uniqueness of the street.
“It simply came to our notice then. Traders and people can come here without any worries including fire. The beautification also went a long way. The project needs to move forward with more lighting and completion of the remaining works. At the same time, if transportation is allowed, it will be more conducive to trade, ”said CP Abdurahman, a CP store owner who sells sweets.
