KOCHI (Metro Rail News): The Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) has started the process of preparing the Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP) to find the best model for the proposed Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode metro rail projects. The district administrations and mayors of both cities have received a letter from KMRL MD Loknath Behera requesting their cooperation and assistance in finishing the project.

Urban Mass Transit Company Ltd has been tasked with preparing the CMP and the Alternative Analysis Report (AAR) for the project. “The KMRL has not finalised what could be the metro model in Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode. Though a light metro was proposed, we will implement the model separately for both cities. We are making a comprehensive plan for the project, which is foreseen to be a reality in the next five years,” Behera stated.

The preparation of the CMP is expected to be completed by the end of March 2023. The KMRL aims to prepare the AAR within one month after getting approval for the CMP. Meanwhile, the tender for the construction of the Sreekaryam flyover will be invited soon, said KMRL officials.
