The proposed Kochi Metro Rail Project could be completed in three years time once the Centre gives its sanction, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) Chairman E Sridharan said today.
The preliminary work in connection with the project, including land survey and station drawing, are on, he told reporters here.
When pointed out that no fund had been earmarked for the Kochi metro rail project in the central budget, he said that would not be a problem.
DMRC is the implementing agency for the project, which was proposed to be taken up as a Centre-state joint venture. It has been delayed for the last three years due to various reasons.
The elevated metro rail, expected to ease the traffic congestion in the city, is to be constructed on the model of Delhi Metro. - (Agencies)
