Kochi Metro Rail Project



The Kochi metro rail project is an undertaking of the state government of Kerala. The metro rail project at Kochi is meant to facilitate transportation in the industrial city of Kochi.
Currently, the means of transport in the city of Kochi are limited to auto rickshaws, buses, taxis and ferries. With the execution of the metro rail project in Kochi, traveling from one place to another in the city will not pose any more problems.

The government of Kerala has sought the active participation of the private sector companies to carry out this massive project of transportation with success. The metro rail project of Kochi is planned on BOT basis.

A couple of people who hold important posts in the government of Kerala have been selected to look after the overall work related to the project. Sheela Thomas, the secretary of the Kerala government, has been designated the special officer in relation of this project.

The project is planned to set up a metro rail connection as long as 25.253 kms. The proposed starting point of this metro rail connection is the place called Alwaye and the proposed ending point is the place called Pettah.

The Kochi metro rail project has a lot of significance, because of the economic significance of Kochi. The city of Kochi earns a lot of revenues for the entire state of Kerala, through its variety of industries. Therefore, to cater to the industrial needs of the city, the infrastructure of transport communication has become one of the most important concerns of the government. The metro rail project of Kochi is a part of the initiative of the Kerala government to better the infrastructure of the city.
