Separate townships are planned in between Technocity near Pallippuram and Neyyattinkara for the funding of proposed Monorail at Thiruvananthapuram. The company which is to be formed for the Monorail project would be responsible for setting up townships. As many as 35 stops have been identified with multi-storeyed parking lots in the stations. Skywalks, Elevators and Escalators are also planned in the proposed Monorail.
The project will be implemented in two phases with the first phase extending from Pallippuram to Thampanoor (22.2 km) and the second phase from Thampanoor to Neyyattinkara (19.6 km). The project is estimated to cost Rs.6,270 crore, taking into account the Rs.150 crore needed for one km of the corridor and the cost of providing low-floor bus connectivity.
