Kochi: As the Kerala State Construction Corporation began relaying works of KSRTC’s parking space at main depot, the transport corporation has decided to park the buses at the adjacent Ambedkar stadium during night. KSRTC has approached Greater Cochin Development Authority (GCDA) seeking permission to use the stadium owned by the city authority. It is expected that KSCC would complete the work within two weeks.

The parking lot at Karakkamuri was provided to the transport corporation, when Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) took over the former’s parking space to carry out preparatory works associated with Kochi metro project. But, as rains lashed across the city, the new parking lot became murky with slush and mud. And it became difficult for drivers to drive out vehicles resulting in creation of traffic blocks in the city. Following KSRTC’s complaint, KMRL handed over the task of relaying the ground to KSCC.

The transport corporation has also informed that they have appointed adequate staff to carry out full-fledged operations. The temporary appointments were made through employment exchanges.
