Kochi Metro project gets Rs 298 cr from Kerala govt

Rs 297.75 crore has been sanctioned for Kochi Metro by the Kerala government on March 28. Out of this, Rs 88.50 crore is State Government's equity share and Rs 209.25 crore is for land acquisition. The State government had sanctioned Rs 19 crore for preparatory works as equity share.

A meeting called by Kochi Metro Rail discussed ways to divert and regulate traffic during the construction phase of the project. The preliminary plan has been handed over to police and other departments to formulate a detailed proposal considering the ground realities. A review meeting will be held in two weeks to finalise it.

The civil works of the project from Aluva to Petta have already been tendered in four packages as Aluva to Kalamassery, Kalamassery to Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, and the stadium to South Railway Station, South Railway Station to Pettah.

In order to take up Metro works, four metres on either side from the centre of highway will be barricaded. Work has been planned in stretches of 200 metres and hence road widening will be taken up accordingly.
