No change in Metro Rail alignment

Special Correspondent

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs M.Vijayakumar ruled out any change in the alignment of the proposed Kochi Metro Rail project here on Wednesday.

The government will go ahead with the project despite a demand for change of alignment from a section of traders, the Minister told mediapersons.

Mr. Vijayakumar, who is also in charge of the Railways, said the government had asked the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, implementing agency of the project, to look into the demand of the shop owners on M.G. Road.

However, the Corporation opposed any change in alignment on technical and financial grounds. Hence, the government had no option but to go ahead with the original proposal. The shop owners wanted the project to be aligned through Shanmugham Road instead of M.G. Road since the project would affect the business establishments there. The government would hold talks with the shop owners.
