Consequent to the meeting taken by the Mr. Abraham Oommen, Director (Finance), KMRL with Mr. V.K. Anil, Director (Technical) of FACT and other officials, FACT have agreed to permit resumption of works at the Kochi Metro’s Casting yard site at Kalamassery, which had been leased out by KMRL from FACT, for the period of the Metro construction.
The work has been put on halt from 13th November`13 due to some concerns that were raised by FACT regarding cutting of trees in the compound. The work resumed as soon as the settlement took place today by morning itself.
“I am happy to see the work resumed at the casting yard, which is very important for the timely completion of the project. We are hopeful such issues do not impede the progress of Metro work, in the larger interests of city development,” said Mr. Elias George, MD, KMRL.
