Kochi, Waterlogging, Kochi metro rail, Kerala, Manholes

The Kochi Municipal Corporation and the district administration in Kerala are likely to soon begin Phase-II of Operation Breakthrough to resolve the city’s waterlogging issues before the monsoon sets in.

As many as 33 projects are part of Phase-II, estimated to cost around Rs 15 crore. Thirty-six projects were completed under Phase-I at a cost of Rs 10 crore.

Though over 200 projects were initially listed under Operation Breakthrough, the remaining work comprised routine desilting and cleaning that the corporation will now do.

Before small drains can be desilted by the corporation, the slabs or interlocking tiles over them will have to be removed and manholes will have to be provided by Kochi Metro Rail for water to flow into them. All of this will have to be completed within a month.
