Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government today 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.

  1. We request Kerala Govt. to approve extension of Kochi Metro Rail from Aluva to Angamaly Karukutty Junction at the earliest with a stop near Cochin International Airport Road junction. Angamaly being an important town and a large number of people commute daily to Ernakulam, this extension will ease the road traffic, benefit commuters from Angamaly and nearby places.
