Kochi Metro begins service trial today Wednesday May 10,2017

The final service trial run of the Kochi Metro began earlier Wednesday May 10,2017 paving way for commercial operations to begin soon. 

The trials have begun after the Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety gave clearance certificate to Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL), that helms the project, and considered to be the fastest to get safety clearance compared to other metro projects in the country. 

The metro train project in Kochi is the first in Kerala and will span 13 kilometres in the first phase from Aluva to Palarivattom.

The project, which has seen five years to see the light of day, will significantly cut travel time for a commuter within the city and will solve larger traffic and pollution problems in Kochi.
