[Pics] Track Installation Work for Kochi Metro at South Kalamassery

Track installation work on the 25.6 km long Kochi Metro is rapidly progressing on different sections of the elevated line which runs from Aluva to Tripunithura. As a reminder, the track laying work began on the morning of August 24 (for info & images see: Track Laying Work Starts for Kochi Metro).

Here are some new images shot last week at South Kalamassery between the TVS junction & University Signal junction. If you’re not familiar with Kochi’s geography, then you may use this map to see where Kalamassery is.

The Kochi Metro requires about 7,000 metric tonnes of head-hardened rails. As per my last update around 3,500 tonnes of rails for the project had been imported from France. The third rail which provides power to the train has also been imported from Germany.
