Kozhikode Metro – Information, Route Map, Fares, Tenders & Updates

Menu: Latest News & Construction Updates | Overview


Kozhikode Light Metro is an urban Light Rail Transit (LRT) system with 1 line and 14 stations proposed to be built in the city of Kozhikode in Kerala.

Kozhikode Metro’s 13.3 km Phase 1 project will be executed by Kerala Rapid Transit Corporation Limited (KRTL), a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) of the Government of Kerala. In January 2016, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) was appointed as the interim consultant, but quit the project in 2018 due to slow progress.

In 2017, the project was put on hold due to its high cost and low ridership projections which were not in line with the Government of India’s new Metro Rail Policy.

A revised DPR prepared by the DMRC was approved by KRTL’s board in October 2020 and by Kerala’s state government in February 2021.
