The Ministry of Environment & Forests on Friday granted Environmental and Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) approved to the Kochi Water Metro Project. It is after going through the compliance report submitted by Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) that the Centre gave the go-ahead for the work on the Water Metro.
This is a major boost to the much-awaited Kochi Water Metro Project. According to Alkesh Kumar Sharma, The managing director of KMRL, We are committed to protecting the environment and all the construction activities of KMRL will be done as per the norms.
While giving the green light, the Centre has asked KMRL not to block creeks or rivers and ensure smooth flow of water in the project area. The authorities concerned have been instructed to devise a disaster management plan and frame safety guidelines. “A detailed traffic management plan should be drawn up,” the ministry said in its order.
The KMRL in its project proposal clarified that Water Metro intends to introduce modern, energy-efficient, fast environment-friendly and safe boats with low wake and draft characteristics to increase ridership.
KMRL has already awarded the tender for construction of boats to Cochin Shipyard Limited.
