Dating back to the ages before the 19th century, the major transportation means were by water. Trade and commerce between various town and villages were liked by the waterways.
Till the 19th century there were no proper roads in this area. The form of transportation was by boats. This also accounts to the reason why the main market of Kozhencherry is near the river.
However, the situation now is different. There are proper roads leading to all the small villages nearby. The T.K. Road (Tiruvalla-Pathanamthitta-Kumbazha Road/SH - 07) and M.K. Road (Mavelikkara-Kozhencherry Road) connects the town to other major towns. A bridge connecting Kozhencherry and Maramon was also opened in 1948.
