TPURAM: Kerala Cabinet Wednesday accorded sanction to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to take up the work of infrastructure connected with Kochi Metro rail project.
Talking to reporters after the cabinet meeting, Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan said DMRC had been permitted to take up the work of road widening and construction of overbridges as part of the Metro project.
The Centre was yet to give full clearance to the Kochi Metro Project, mooted by the state government to ease the traffic problem of the commercial capital of Kerala. The state had selected DMRC to execute the project.
Kerala was expecting an early clearance for the project, Achuthanandan said to a question. The project has to receive sanction from some more departments of the Union Government, he added
