National Highway 47 (India)(old numbering)|
National Highway 47, commonly referred to as NH 47, is a long highway connecting the city of Salem to Kanyakumari town in southern India. The highway runs through the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu,.,〔() National Highway 47〕 The important towns are Salem, Palakkad, Thrissur, Alappuzha, Kollam, Thiruvananthapuram, Nagercoil and Kanyakumari. The NH 47 runs within a few kilometers of Coimbatore International Airport (within Coimbatore city limits), Cochin International Airport (Nedumbassery) and the Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) International Airport.
The Salem-Coimbatore-Kochi stretch of the highway is included in the North-South Corridor of the Indian highway system. It is currently undergoing conversion to 4 lane, with some sections 6 lane. At the end of 2010, 40% of this stretch is 4 laned, and 35% under implementation.
The stretch between the Industrial city of Coimbatore and the Port city of Kochi is one of the busiest in the Indian Highway system. Most of the traffic in this stretch comprises trucks carrying consumer goods, construction materials, container lorries (bound for Kochi Port and Kochi International Container Transhipment Terminal) and passenger vehicles. During night, the highway experiences a huge volume of traffic. On an average, around 8,000 lorries use this highway to reach Coimbatore every night. The highway has several motels and restaurants along the entire stretch. Fatal accidents frequently happen in this highway, mostly due to irresponsible bus drivers and over-speeding lorries colliding head on. Many number of Large Industries and Textile parks are located on this highway between Coimbatore, Erode and Tiruppur districts.
Earlier the National Highway-47 which used to pass through the centre of Coimbatore city, now completely bypasses the city, with the commissioning of L&T by-pass road. The arterial Avinashi Road and Palakkad Road in Coimbatore city's stretch from Neelambur to Madukkarai through Ukkadam, Karumbukadai, Attuppalam, Kuniyamuthur has now been transferred to the State Highways Department, and is not part of the NH 47 anymore. In case of any mishaps on the highway, the emergency services are sometimes delayed several hours due to the volume of traffic in the Coimbatore-Salem Industrial Corridor.
