PM lays foundation stone for Kochi Metro rail project

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Thursday laid the foundation stone for the Kochi Metro Rail project and said it would facilitate the city's "overall social and economic development".

"Kochi's transport infrastructure is already under severe stress, with the demand for travel having risen steeply in recent years. The Metro would provide this area with a modern mass transport system, not only making it convenient for the residents to commute, but also further facilitating Kochi's overall social and economic development," said Singh.
