Kochi Metro

In a move that would change the way Kochi travels, and indeed lives, the Centre accorded sanction for the much-awaited Kochi Metro rail project. When the trains actually start running, which should be no later than 2016 according to the official deadline, it will be possible to travel the 25.6 kilometre distance between Aluva and Petta in 30 minutes. 
The decision was announced after the cabinet meeting in New Delhi on Tuesday. It was after a long hiatus that the Centre gave the nod for the Rs 5,181.79 crore project. Sanctions have also been accorded to procure loans from Japan International Cooperation Agency. 

He said that KMRL was looking at integrating various forms of transportation including rail, water and road, which will be Kochi Metro’s USP.
