Narendra Modi to Inaugurate Kochi metro on June 17
The much awaited Kochi Metro is set to roll on its tracks soon. Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be inaugurating it on June 17. But would be open for public only from June 19. It has been a long wait indeed for the Kochi city dwellers and for the people around. For thousands of Malayali’s it’s a dream come true. Soon there would be tons on people waiting for a joy full ride across the city in Kochi Metro.
Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh laid the foundation for the project 5 years ago on 13 September 2012. Since then, there has been no looking back. KMRL worked day and night to fulfill gods own countries dream. The Metro would first start operating between Aluva – Palarivattom and later by August it would connect till the Maharaja’s ground.
KMRL has already predicted the crowd to pile and is ready with necessary measure. DCP YatIsh Chandra has deployed necessary measures and has also asked the vehicles not to enter the metro bound roads as there is a high possibility of traffic congestion along the rail line. Parking facilities would be provided at all major stations. Kudumbashree workers have been appointed by the KMRL for various posts and Kochi Metro Special Police have been deployed for the internal security of the Metro Stations and trains. Along with it around 135 State Industrial Security Force (SISF) personnel have been recruited for the job.
The metro stations are going to be equipped with Wi-Fi to attract the net savvy commuters. Each station is said to have a theme based on which its interior and exterior would be designed. Kerala has always been known for its natural beauty, its flora and fauna and so does each station brief you about the different nature related experiences. It is also floored with rough tiles for the blind man’s comfort while the rest of the floor is granite.
Ahead of the opening, the security has been strengthened to welcome the chief guest. Orders have also passed to repair the roads that lead from Naval base to the JLN Stadium for the convenience of our Prime Minister.
