Proposals are being drawn up to shift the proposed Metro Rail station at Vyttila from the Vyttila junction to the mobility hub.
The first phase of Kochi Metro might get a new stretch passing over the backwaters of the city. With proposals being put forward to divert the metro through Vyttila Mobility Hub, chances are high that the trains will pass through bridges built across the backwaters, adding to the scenic appeal of the project. Vyttila is one point where that the 25.5 kilometre-long metro line between Aluva and Petta will cross a water body. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) stated that the new route, through the hub, might help reduce land acquisition. The plan is to facilitate smooth and comfortable transport system for passengers coming from outside the district to the city.The idea has been discussed as part of the concept of seamless integration of all modes of transport, promoted by the Union Ministry of Urban Transport.
