A smart route map for Kochi Metro Rail

The dream IT project of Kochi, the Smart City, may soon get metro rail connectivity. The state government has decided to extend the alignment of Kochi Metro Rail to the proposed Smart City site.

The authorities will soon start the study for foxing the alignment for the new route. “We have decided to extend the alignment. It will be fixed without much delay,” said Minister Aryadan Mohammed who is in charge of the Railways in the state.

According to the existing plan, the metro rail starting from Nedumbassery will end at Petta in Tripunithura. The authorities are exploring the possibilities of two routes. The first proposal is to extend the metro rail line to InfoPark at Kakkanad from Petta. The second option is to provide a connecting line from Petta to Kalamassery so that the trains will run in a circular route around the city. “We have to conduct studies about extending the project to Kakkanad. The study will start after getting the directive from the state government,” an official with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said.
