Kochi: The Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) on Friday said passenger services will be rescheduled from August 26 (tomorrow) and will start only from 8 am.
The change is part of the KMRL’s plan to extend the operations of Kochi Metro till Maharaja’s College by the beginning of October before the FIFA Under-17 World Cup event starts. In a statement, the KMRL said “in order to commission this reach, technical tests have to be done on the signalling system for the complete section from Aluva to Maharaja’s College. This delayed schedule will continue till September 2 for ensuring the smooth commissioning of the signalling system.”
As September 3 is Sunday, the services will be starting at 8 am. The services will start at the usual time i.e. 6 am from September 4, it said.
