MG Road to be closed on Saturday night
M.G. Road will be closed to traffic as part of the preparatory work for the Kochi Metro Rail on Saturday night.
The road will remain closed between 9 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. on Sunday for the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to detect the underground sewage lines. This is crucial before launching the piling works in the stretch along the M.G. Road.
The works may stretch beyond the allotted time, if rain plays spoilsport. DMRC has decided to press in extra workers and equipment for the time-bound completion of work. The work will be launched from near the Doraiswamy Crossroad.
