OK, here is my favourite section. Road development:

3.4.5.7.2.1 Road network development scheme
The road network development scheme include proposals for development of transit
oriented development corridor, strengthening of regional roads, major roads and other
important roads.

(1) Promoting transit oriented development Corridor

The existing stretch linking Angamaly – Nedumbassery – Aluva – Kalamassery - Kochi - Tripunithura – Mulamthuruthy- Piravom is to be promoted as transit oriented development corridor. As part of this, intense development shall be permitted in the Angamaly – Thrippunithura – Piravom corridor.

NH 47 (along with NH By pass) from Kalamassery to Maradu (meeting at proposed NH49 bypass), will form part of this development corridor. Transit stations permitting high density development around, are to be identified along this corridor.

(2) Strengthening of regional roads

• The existing regional roads identified in the Kochi City Region are:

(i) Kochi- Munambam Road (through Vypeen Islands)
(ii) NH 17- from Edappally to Kodungallur
(iii) Kochi - Aluva (NH 47)
(iv) Kochi - Perumbavur road (through Thrikkakara),
(v) Kochi - Moovattupuzha road (NH 49 through Thiruvankulam),
(vi) Kochi – Vaikom through Udayamperur
(vii) Kochi –Alappuzha (Old N.H) through EdaKochi
(viii) Kochi-Chellanam – Alappuzha through the coast
(ix) NH 49 A

• All these regional roads other than the National Highways were proposed to be developed as 27 m wide road in the Structure Plan for Central City, Kochi. As it is not possible to widen the existing Kochi-Munambam Road (through Vypeen Islands), a new regional road parallel to the existing road from Kalamukku Jn in Elamkunnappuzha Panchayat, with 22 m width is proposed. This road will join NH 17 near Munambam.

• The Kochi- Munambam Road (through Vypeen Island) and the Coastal road through Kochi - Chellanam - Alappuzha are proposed to be developed as 15m wide road.

• Kochi - Perumbavur road (through Thrikkakara), Kochi - Moovattupuzha road (NH 49 through Thiruvankulam), Kochi – Vaikom through Udayamperur, Kochi – Alappuzha (Old N.H) through EdaKochi and NH 49 A are proposed to be developed to
27 m width

• New bypass to existing NH 49, from Kundannur to Puthenkurisu via Chottanikkara is proposed for development. The mass transport corridor (transit oriented development corridor) from Kalamassery will join the proposed NH 49 bypass.

• Thripunithrua- Karimugal road is proposed to be developed to 27 m width only upto the Smart City Road in the first phase and could be developed further after the development of the transit oriented development corridor proposed from Kodungallur- Piravom via Kolencherry

(3) Major roads

• The existing road from Vallarpadam to NH 47 via Kadamakkudy and Eloor (Container Terminal road) is proposed to be developed as 45 m wide road. This road , is proposed for exclusive movement of containers from Vallarpadam towards northern side. A link road is proposed from this Container terminal road to connect it with with NH 47 at a point beyond Angamaly, so as to reduce congestion in the Kochi City Region. The alignment of this new link road is to be fixed after detailed studies. Container movement towards southern side is not expected to enter into the Kochi City Region. It is proposed to utilize Inland Water Ways for container transport towards southern side.

• New link road with 22 m width, connecting the 22 m wide proposed road (parallel to Kochi – Munambam road, from Elamkunnappuzha) and the Container Terminal road is proposed.

• A 27 m wide road linking Old NH at Edakochi and NH 47 at Madavana Jn (Kumbalam) is proposed to increase the connectivity from Fort Kochi, Mattanchery, Chellanam and Kumbalangi area to the new transit oriented development corridor.

• A new road (Smart City Road) connecting major potential job centres in the urbanizing peripheral areas in eastern side of Kochi City region viz. Kalamassery, Thrikkakara and Vadavukode Puthenkurisu is proposed . This road, from HMT road
at Kalamassery to NH 49 at Puthenkurisu, is proposed to be developed as 27 m wide road.

• The existing Sea Port Air Port road is proposed to be widened as 45 m road and is proposed to be extended from Irumbanam Junction (at Thiruvankulam) and connected to the proposed NH 49 bypass.

• A 22 m wide link road connecting NH 47 Bypass and the Smart City road is proposed as extension from Thammanam –Pulleppady road.

• A 22 link road connecting NH 47 bypass (at Madavana Jn, Maradu) and Kaloor – Kadavanthra Road is proposed

• Another 22 m link road is proposed connecting Kochi- Chellanam –Alappuzha Road and Kumbalangi Road


There is no mention about the Kakkanad-Thankalam road. Probably because this being a proposal specifically for the KCR.

Oh same here too - THINGS ARE GETTING BETTER!!
The Master plan unlike the previous ones - see the city in a broader perspective - in a metropolitan scale.
Thanks for the masterminds behind this.

The proposals for bus service:

(1) Bus Transport System

It is proposed to develop a bus transport system to serve Kochi City Region by complementing and supplementing the other three mass transportation systems identified. The planning of the bus transport system involved the assessment of travel demand along various travel corridors for different horizon years, rationalization of bus routes, development of terminals and working out an operation plan for the bus transport system. In the initial years, priority needs to be given to the optimization of bus line network, the construction of transit terminals and the rapid development of high capacity public passenger transportation. The terminals located at various places in Kochi along with terminals identified at new locations need to be constructed or renovated so as to form a rationally located, easily accessible and efficient public passenger service network.

The development of bus transport system of Kochi City Region includes the following:

• Development and optimization of the bus and mini bus service network and integration with other modes of public transport including sub-urban rail, metro rail and inland water transport. Expansion of the service areas to form an efficient passenger transport network by rationally grading and structuring the various categories of roads proposed
• Development of dedicated bus ways on selected corridors
• Construction of bus interchange terminals and improvement of service facilities.
• Introduction of GPS, wireless communication systems and lower chassis vehicles to upgrade the operation level and the application of science and technology
• Promoting the application of clean energy in public transit vehicles with the buses using clean energy
• Improvement in the public transport information service system to meet the demand of high quality communications and information search
• Introduction of electronic ticketing with unified ticketing system for all public transport modes

Bus Routes:

a. Proposed routes

• The high demand corridors for urban mass transport travel are identified (NATPAC, 2006) as follows:

(i) Kaloor-Palarivattam section (369,331 passengers/day)
(ii) Kaloor-Madhava Pharmacy (332,893)
(iii) High Court-BTH (300,319)
(iv) Madhava Pharmacy-High Court (278,262)
(v) Jos-Pallimukku (277,713)
(vi) Valanjambalam-Vyttila(248,764)
(vii) Palarivattam-Kaloor (368,430)
(viii) Pallimukku-Thevara (246,560)
(ix) Edappally-Palarivattam (196,858)
(x) Madhava Pharmacy-Jose (170,660)
(xi) Edappally-Edappally bridge (169,773)
(xii) South-Valanjambalam (158,704)
(xiii) Vyttila-Petta (158,083)
(xiv) Palarivattam-Palarivattam bypass (152,316)
(xv) Thevara-Thoppumpady (150,733)
(xvi) Hospital-Maharaja (121,845)
(xvii) Palarivattam-Kakkanadu (128,389)
(xviii) Paramara road (104,451)
(xix) Palarivattam-Vyttila (94,266)
(xx) Kacheripady-South (88,416)


There is minor, but basic flaw in this data, which is glaringly evident in (xviii) Paramara road. This traffic is purely because the traffic going east from Kacheripady being routed around the bottleneck. Similarly, at South, there are lot of such route-arounds.

Also, one thing being masked here is the significant chunk of passengers going from Palarivattom to Vytila, right through the city. They have to do that, because that is how the busses routed. We can't really collect the statistics on this, unless you count the passengers, not vehicles.

Now, this is interesting:

(2) Ring rail system

Two major railway lines (Thiruvananthapuram – Thrissur railway line via Kottayam and Ernakulam to Thiruvannathapuram via Alappuzha) connects Kochi to other major urban centres of the State. The Thiruvananthapuram - Alappuzha - Ernakulam railway line enters Ernakulam South Railway Station via Nettur and Thiruvananthapuram – Kottayam- Thrissur
railwayline enters Ernakulam North Railway Station via Thrippunithura. The rail traffic, directed to these two stations located in the city centre and then outwards again, cause unnecessary congestion.

It is proposed to divert long distance rail traffic from the city centre. For this, a new line is proposed to connect the existing Ernakulam – Alappuzha line (at Nettur) and Ernakulam-Kottayam line (at Thrippunithura) along proposed NH 49 bypass. From Thrippunithura, a new line is proposed to be connected to Kalamassery via Thikkakara. All long distance trains will be diverted through his proposed line.
{What are they smoking? Where will the diverted trains stop? Build new huge stations at Kalamassery? I don't see any advantage with this at all!}

A major railway station is proposed to be constructed at Eroor road (near the extension of Thammanam –Pulleppady road to Smart City road.
{For what? The station should be part of the mobility hub.}

A ring rail service is proposed to be introduced in the existing railway line for intra-city traffic connecting South railway station, Thrippunithura, Kalamassery, High Court junction and North railway station. Tentative alignment of the proposed railway line and the tentative location of new railway station is shown in Map no 3.4.5.2. The alignment has to be finalized after separate feasibility studies
{This is based on the erroneous notion of diverting mainline traffic.}


Unless you are going to build a major rail terminal somewhere on the diverted track, and link it with the rest of the city by road and rail, this whole proposal is unviable.

About Metro:

(4) Mass Rapid Transit System- Metro Rail

Public transport system is an efficient user of space and with reduced level of air and noise pollution. As the population of a city grows, share of public transport, whether road or rail-based, should increase. Experience has shown that, in cities like Kochi where roads do not have adequate width and which cater to mixed traffic conditions comprising slow and fast moving vehicles, road transport can optimally carry 8,000 persons per hour per direction (phpdt). When traffic density increases beyond this level average speed of vehicles comes down, journey time increases, air pollution goes up and commuters are put to increased level of inconvenience. In any case, it is not feasible to operate bus transport beyond 10,000 phpdt in mixed transport scenario, prevailing on Kochi city roads.

Greater Kochi area, with its present population of 1.9 million and employment of 7 lakhs has a travel demand of 14 lakhs passenger trips every day, with 2.4 lakhs trips during peak hours. With growing population and mega development plans coming up for this port city, the travel demand is expected to grow steeply. With inadequate public transport services, passengers will shift to private modes, which is already evident from the high vehicle ownership trends in the region. This will not only aggravate the congestion on the city roads but will also increase the pollution level.

Peak hour traffic demand on Aluva - Petta Corridor has been assessed as 13,681 phpdt for the year 2011 and this is likely to increase 23,621 phpdt by the year 2025 as reported in the study report “Detailed Project Report Kochi Metro Project – Alwaye - Petta Corridor’. Road-based public transport, therefore, cannot meet this demand. There is an urgent need to introduce a light Metro System in the city to provide fast, safe, economic and environment-friendly mode for mass movement of passengers. Carrying capacity of Light Metro System is up to 25,000 phpdt which will be adequate to take care of the traffic problems for Greater Kochi area for the next about 25 years.

Delhi metro rail corporation has prepared a detailed plan for the development of metro rail corridor between Aluva and Petta (25.253 kms). A total of 24 stations have been proposed by DMRC along the proposed corridor. The alignment of metro rail, as proposed by DMRC, is shown in Map no 3.4.5.2

About Flyovers

(a) Flyovers/underpass

The location of Flyovers proposed is as follows:
Sl No Location
1 Atlantis junction on MG road
2 Ravipuram junction on MG road
3 Pallimukku junction on MG road {Doesn't 1,2,3 make one bigflyover?}
4 Kundannur junction on NH by pass
5 Chakkaraparambu on NH by pass {I wonder why?}
6 Palarivattom junction on NH by pass
7 SN junction at Thripunithura {You will not need this once NH-49 bypasses Thripunithura town.}
8 Fly over at NH 47 (Thammanam – Pulleppady road
extension to sea port – air port road) {I guess 5, Chakkaraparambu is the same as this.}
9 On NH by- pass from Aroor to Edappally {Then why specify all the individual flyovers?}
10 On MG road from Manorama jn. to foreshore road {Doesn't this clash with 1,2,3? }

Not a well made proposal IMO.

I propose a single elevated freeway from Kalamassery to Aroor, with interchanges at Edapally, Palarivattom, Chakkaraparambu (for the new highway), vytila and Kundannoor. If that is not feasible, build interchanges at Edapally, Palarivattom, Vytila and Kundannor, and build proper service roads on either side.

I feel flyovers are not possible for MG Road because of space problem. There could be an elevated road from Manorama Jn to Foreshore road, WITHOUT interchange with MG Road. there is no space there.

Once the NH-49 bypass is built, you will not need a flyover at SN junction anymore.

What about Pachalam roundabout?

The location of Under pass/ Sub way proposed is as follows:

Sl. Location
1 Kaloor junction on Banerji road
2 Vyttila junction on NH by pass {Even after flyover? Maybe needed. Not sure. Need walkways to the mobility hub in any case}
3 Edappally junction on NH by pass {Same here. Need walkways to Lulu as well.}
4 NH – 47 at Kochi university
5 Sub way at Menaka with connection to Broad way
6 Sea port – Air port road near collectorate {Seriously? If we go like that there are a lot of locations that need them}


What about Palarivattom Jn, Kaloor church, Kadavanthra etc?

i dont think so!!!

The Govt, nor the GCDA, nor Coorp., nor the GIDA, nor any other agency will fund(they r out of funds) for these proj's!! MP eyeing 2031 will not be completed by 2031!!!!!

Well, at least there is a guideline, to be referred to when funds come (like in JNNURM). It is very important that we get the guidelines right.

They have just suggested Flyovers @ all main junction in and around the city without much thought.

FIrst of all..Building flyovers in City center (spclly MG road ) is just not possible. :!:

The location of Flyovers proposed is as follows:
Sl No Location
1 Atlantis junction on MG road - Required and Possible
2 Ravipuram junction on MG road - Not Possible
3 Pallimukku junction on MG road {Doesn't 1,2,3 make one bigflyover?}- Not possible
4 Kundannur junction on NH by pass - Required and Possible
5 Chakkaraparambu on NH by pass {I wonder why?} - Even I wonder why..may be once the road is ready we ll be able 2 say.
6 Palarivattom junction on NH by pass - Required and Possible
7 SN junction at Thripunithura {You will not need this once NH-49 bypasses Thripunithura town.}- Required even if NH49 Bypass is ready ..BUt is it possible ?
8 Fly over at NH 47 (Thammanam – Pulleppady road) - Required and Possible
extension to sea port – air port road) {I guess 5, Chakkaraparambu is the same as this.}
9 On NH by- pass from Aroor to Edappally {Then why specify all the individual flyovers?}
10 On MG road from Manorama jn. to foreshore road {Doesn't this clash with 1,2,3? }- Will they built multilevel flyovers like the one they are building in mumbai :?

My point is, many of the suggestions look like haphazard, and that reduces the value/credibility of this document.

Also, the road infra doesn't address a major point (of course, I am biased here, as I had been working on it) that the feeder area of Infopark further stages being on the east side of that area.

(iv) Kochi - Perumbavur road (through Thrikkakara),
(v) Kochi - Moovattupuzha road (NH 49 through Thiruvankulam),

Transit Stage 2 Road Developments to Perumbavoor and Muvattupuzha Can be Joined if the Route is Via Kakkanad.Already a Proposed SHORTER Highway to Kothamangalam(and Muvattupuzha) from kakkanad exists;But not mentioned in this master plan.Kakkanad Muvattupuzha(or Kothamangalam) Highway if ever become Reality will Cover Vast Underdeveloped Areas between Ernakulam and Muvattupuzha.

rather than from Thiruvankulam to Muvattupuzha NH49.

Kochi Master Plan
The master plan seems so elaborated and well studies with a lots of proj/plan to develop Kochi into a world class metro. But the real question is, will these projects be implemented??? The MP have plotted devpt proj's worth billions of dollars, where do they assume to get funds for all these projs??

It is not a project plan. It is a guideline plan. That is to say IF something is to be done, it must be LIKE THIS.

The major lacuna in my opinion is the total disregard of the future 'feeder' area to the east. The newly included Vadavucude/Puthencruz region is going to host the biggest IT development. Its feeder can only be to the east. I don't see any east-west corridor defined there.
