The first phase of the monorail to be executed by Kerala Monorail Corporation Ltd (KMCL) will be from Technocity, near Pallippuram, to Karamana, as per the Detailed Project Report (DPR) prepared by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).A 28-km monorail, an elevated rail-based mass rapid transit system (MRTS), has been mooted on the Pallippuram-Uloor-M.G.Road-Thampanoor-Karamana-Balaramapuram stretch of the capital.

The depot of the monorail will be at Karamana as adequate land had been identified by the side of the National Highway. The Natpac suggested the 22.2-km phase from Mangalapuram to Thampanoor as the first phase and the 19.6 km from Thampanoor to Neyyattinkara as the second phase. Sources said the DMRC had decided to scale down the distance and shift the depot from Thampanoor citing technical reasons.

Principal Adviser to the DMRC and Member of the State Planning Board E. Sreedharan will make a presentation of the DPR to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and his Cabinet colleagues on December 11. The government on Monday issued orders entrusting the monorail project in the capital to Kerala Monorail Corporation Ltd, a fully owned company being formed under the government.
