The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) would identify a new contractor soon to complete the pending portion of the semi-ring road connecting Thuvakudi with Panchapur which has been dragging on for more than 10 years now.
The expansion project connecting Jeeyapuram (on Karur-Trichy stretch of NH 67) with Thuvakudi (Trichy-Thanjavur stretch of NH 67) was proposed by the NHAI in 2007.

Owing to legal hurdles, poor planning and official apathy, the project saw several struggles in the past decade.
