Karaikal: The construction work for the proposed Rs 75 crore super-specialty hospital here would commence soon, Tirunallar MLA P R Siva said on Wednesday.
Work on the project was yet to commence even after identification of lands, Siva told reporters here.
"When the (Puducherry Chief Minister N Rangasamy`s) attention was drawn on the issue, he said the construction works will commence within a couple of months," he said.
The project would be carried out on the 30-acre land procured at Pillai Theru in Karaikal, Siva said.
The MLA expressed hope that the super-specialty hospital would prove to be a boon not only for the people of Karaikal district, but also for those of neighbouring districts in Tamil Nadu.
