Kochi Metro Rail Project
Prime Minister Dr.Manmohan Singh laid the foundation stone for the Kochi Metro Rail Project for linking Aluva to Petta. When the project is completed, it would transform the face of the commercial capital of the state.

In his address, Dr. Singh said: “the Centre would support 19 cities with a population of over two million each to prepare detailed project reports for Metro rail projects. The Central support for the 25 km Kochi project, estimated at Rs 5180 crore, would be around Rs 1000 crore. 

Kochi would be the eighth city in India to have a Metro network. However, Metro rail is just one component of an efficient public transport system. We need to build in our cities multimodal transport systems that efficiently Info-Park, more space Kochi Metro Rail Project integrate different modes of public transport like buses and trains.” 

“Metro rail projects under implementation in seven cities cost more than Rs 1.15 lakh crore with a total length of 476 km. The Delhi Metro carries about 22 lakh people a day. The Union government would provide assistance for Bus Rapid Transit System projects in 11 cities with a total length of over 437 km, estimated at over Rs 5500 crore. 

Efficient public transport system is critical to the orderly growth and development of India cities,”said Dr Singh.
