The restriction introduced by the district administration on movement of container carrier lorries came into force on Thursday. The entry of container trucks was blocked as part of the efforts to ease possible traffic snarls in connection with construction of Kochi Metro Rail.

From July 25, container trucks coming from Alappuzha and Kottayam sides should reach Willingdon Island along Kundanoor and utilise the the Ro-Ro ferry service to reach the Vallarpadom container road.

Vehicles coming from Aluva side should take the Vallarpadom container road and then Ro-Ro ferry service to reach the container station at Willingdon Island and proceed to other districts. Anticipating this diversion, the Cochin Port Trust(CPT), on a request raised by the Container Carrier Owners’ Association, had decided to increase the frequency of Ro-Ro (Roll-on Roll-off) service and to reduce tariff from June 1 itself. The Ro-Ro Service will be operated from 3 am to 10 pm.

The Ro-Ro barge can transport 20 TEUs in one trip and has a transit capacity of 480 TEUs a day.
