Kerala govt gives nod for Kochi Metro phase II extension Kochi Metro

Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government Wednesday gave the nod for extension of phase II of Kochi Metro from Jawaharlal Nehru stadium to Infopark, which is estimated to cost Rs. 2,577 crore.

The decision in this regard was taken at the State Cabinet meeting chaired by chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

The extension will be from the Nehru stadium to Infopark via Kakkanad, a government press release said.

Kochi Metro, which has secured the green signal from Rail safety panel, has begun service trials some one and half weeks ago, an important step ahead of starting commercial operations from Aluva to Palarivattom.

Kochi Metro is also the first Metro in India to cover a distance of 13 km in its first phase, from Aluva to Palarivattom, and is expected to be opened in June this year, KMRL officials said.
