Marine Drive could mean High Court itself. Not sure... KMRL signed agreement with GCDA to develop a world class boat jetty station with a Marina. I feel, such a project is more viable near HC itself.

Maharaja's don't have a water terminal station. Maharaja's is located nearest to a Boat station at Ernakulam Boat Jetty which is less than 400M of walk. A dedicated walkway will connect these two.

KMRL to initiate for mega cleanup of Vembandu Lake ahead of Water Metro

Quote:
The Kochi Metro Rail Ltd (KMRL) which had announced a campaign for systematic cleaning of Kochi's backwaters, which is part of Vembanad Lake, will soon come out with a detailed plan.

The programme, which was announced in July this year, focuses on cleaning and de-littering the lake and its adjoining areas.

Though the Metro agency had announced plans to launch the programme in the August, it got disrupted as the attention was on the launch of commercial operations of Metro till Maharaja's College Ground.

"Now, as we go ahead with the Kochi Water Metro project we have also started working on the lake cleaning programme. The ministry of urban development (MoUD) is also interested in the initiative," said KMRL spokesperson.

The Metro agency will soon hold a seminar on the subject by roping in experts from different countries, including Germany, which has successfully implemented similar programmes. KMRL has signed an agreement with the German funding agency, KfW, for implementing the Rs 747-crore integrated water transport project for the Greater Kochi region.

Germany also has vast experience in cleaning and rejuvenating European rivers such as Rhine and Danube. It is reported that India has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Germany to clean Ganga by adopting successful models of management.

The project aims at preserving and protecting the Kochi backwaters or the Vembanad ecosystem. The Metro agency plays the role of a catalyst by bringing in specialized expertise, technical assistance and manpower support along with other stakeholders such as government organizations, NGOs, environmental activists, corporates and other interested organizations to work together in pursuit of a sustainable plan for preserving and cleaning the backwater eco-system.

"Several rounds of discussions have been held. We will have to find out what can be done for cleaning up backwaters," said KMRL spokesperson adding that the entire programme can be executed in a phase-by-phase manner.
KMRL will have to bring in experts depending on various needs arising during planning and programme implementation.

"We will need the support of local NGOs and other agencies for successfully executing lake clean-up programme. We are also talking to various people who are interested in funding the programme," she said.

More pics of the terminals at Fort Kochi and Vytilla.

The aim is for larger public spaces and make ferry a priority choice for commuters
