Giving a positive signal to the possible timely completion of the Kochi Metro Rail project, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), floated two tenders on Thursday for the construction of viaducts.

The tender notifications came only two days after an official announcement that the DMRC would be given charge of the project implementation.

 The first tender was floated for the construction of an elevated viaduct and six elevated stations at Cusat, Pathadippalam, Edappally, Changampuzha Park, Palarivattaom and Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kaloor, at an estimated cost of `400 crore.

The last date for submitting the tenders is March 3.

The second tender is for the construction of elevated viaducts and stations at Aluva, Pulinchodu, Companypady, Ambattukavu, Muttom and Kalamassery, including finishing works of stations connecting the elevated viaduct and ramp to the metro rail depot that would be set up at Muttom.

According to an official spokesperson of the DMRC, tenders for the construction of viaducts and elevated stations from Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium to Tripunithura-Petta would be floated once the land acquisition along the stretch is completed.

The DMRC had already floated the tender for the work of the Muttom yard. DMRC principal advisor E Sreedharan had earlier mentioned that the DMRC is confident of completing the Kochi Metro Rail in three years.
