Video posted on Kochi metro’s Facebook page turns an instant hit
The informal video is rather unusual for a government-run organisation, what with even the managing director, directors, managers, administrative staff, and depot workers shaking a leg to thank patrons and to ring in the New Year.
But the video posted on the Facebook page of the Kochi metro has already become a hit.
is candid, as not many knew at the time of shooting that it would be part of an official promo, said Anoop Mohan, assistant manager, signalling and telecommunication department, Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL).
“It has come out well and has covered a cross-section of employees. It also reflects on the good work culture at the metro,” he added.
And sure, the metro has a reason to celebrate. “After all, it was the sole mode of transport that could be relied on along the national highway and many parts of the Greater Kochi area when floods lashed the State. We turned Good Samaritans by operating trains free of cost for people desperate to move to safer areas and for volunteers to transport food and other items,” said KMRL managing director A.P.M. Mohammed Hanish, who is seen grooving to the rhythm of the musical video.
Daily footfall on the metro touched 50,000 during the season. “It will further increase when the 5.5-km extension up to Thykoodam is realised in June. The commissioning of the Champakkara bridge will follow suit,” he added.
Phase II work
The agency, Mr. Hanish said, was expected to start work on the second phase of the Vyttila Mobility Hub whose DPR had been approved by the VMH Society’s executive committee.
“The governing body chaired by the Chief Minister has to ratify it now. We also helped install GPS in 900 private buses, while e-buses as the metro’s feeder service are expected to be rolled out once the UMTA Act is passed. e-autos too will be introduced in the metro corridor,” he added.
