Chief Minister Oommen Chandy declared that the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) would be entrusted with construction of overbridge at Pachalam. In his inaugural address, Mr. Chandy said the work would be assigned to DMRC as part of the Kochi Metro Rail project. A Cabinet decision in this regard would be made shortly, he said.

The Chief Minister wondered whether there was any further need for a meeting, scheduled for January 4, to take a decision on the issue. The only question was whether DMRC was willing to take up the work and E. Sreedharan, Principal Advisor to DMRC, confirmed it, Mr. Chandy said.

Earlier, the ministers and people’s representatives who spoke at the function had requested the Chief Minister to take a positive decision on giving the Pachalam overbridge work to DMRC.

Union Minister of State for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution K.V. Thomas said Mr. Sreedharan had given an initial report to construct the bridge viably and with minimal land acquisition and requested the Chief Minister to give nod to the proposal.
