Kerala has announced a suburban railway project connecting Thiruvananthapuram with Chengannur, near Kottayam. A cabinet meeting gave in-principle nod for the project and decided to initiate its feasibility study. The decision was announced by chief minister Oommen Chandy.

He said most parts of the railway line linking Ernakulam to Thiruvananthapuram had been made double lane. Additional lanes for the suburban service would not incur much expense when compared with Kochi metro and mono rail projects.

The proposed railway line would have high speed trains, and stops in main towns. Chengannur is the nearest railway station to the Sabarimala temple.

The Cabinet also gave administrative sanction to implement road renovation projects with an estimated cost of Rs 433 crore. It also approved the market intervention schemes of civil supplies and co-operative departments during the festive season in order to regulate prices of essential commodities.
