Kochi Metro’s Phase 2 project with one new 11.2 km Pink Line and 11 stations was approved by the Kerala Government in July 2018 with an estimated cost of Rs 2,310 crore.

Phase 2 includes the construction of a spur line from Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium to Infopark II in Kakkanad. Its construction contract was awarded to Afcons Infrastructure in June 2024.

Phase 2’s detailed project report (DPR) was approved by the Central Government’s Cabinet in September 2022 with an estimated cost of Rs. Rs.1,957.05 crore

This phase will likely be funded by a loan from the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). I expect Kochi Metro’s Phase 2 to be completed and opened in 2028.
