The detailed project report (DPR) for the proposed Thiruvananthapuram-Kasaragod Semi High-Speed Rail (SHSR) corridor will be ready by early January 2020. The work is expected to get underway in 2020 itself.


The implementing agency of the project is the Kerala Rail Development Corporation (KRDCL). The traffic survey for the project had been completed and the soil testing is over by 70 percent. The Environmental Impact Study is underway.

The preliminary work on the alignment of the project will start soon, for which the approval from the authorities concerned has been obtained. In Thrissur-Kasaragod stretch, the stations of the SHSR will be located close to the existing railway stations. There will also be feeder stations, and locations for these in Kollam and Thiruvananthapuram districts include Attingal, Kallamblam, Paripally and Chathannur.

The 55 km distance between Thiruvananthapuram and Kollam will be covered by SHSR in 24 minutes. From Kollam to Chengannur it will take 48 minutes; to Kottayam one hour and to Ernakulam one hour 26 minutes.

The SHSR will have world-class technology, such as automatic train control and ticket distribution systems and the state-of-the-art communication channels. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 56,443 crore, but can escalate upto Rs 66,079 crore by the time of its completion.
