Union Minister of State for Food and Consumer Affairs K.V. Thomas has said the Kerala Industrial and Technical Consultancy Organisation’s (KITCO) report on elevating Ernakulam Junction railway station to one of international standards will be ready within three months.
Speaking at a meeting convened here to discuss about various railway projects, Mr. Thomas said action based on the report would be executed in a time-bound manner, with the support of the Union government and public sector units. The station would be renovated in the traditional Kerala architectural style.
A design in this regard had been readied and Kitco was appointed as consultant to prepare a detailed technical report and estimate, he said.
Divisional Railway Manager Rajesh Agarwal said the now unused Railway line that links Pachalam with the ERG yard (the Old Railway Station)would be brought back to life, as a prelude to renovating the station.
