KOCHI (Metro Rail News): Kochi Metro Rail Limited has started to beautify Medians with the support of corporates and business community from Kochi. Already 215 of its medians from Edappally to Petta stretch have been given to sponsors who will maintain and beautify the medians with gardens.
Kochi Metro decided to beautify the medians as part of its endeavours to make a zero-carbon footprint system. Major Jewelers, hospitals, bakeries, textile shops and other institutions along the stretch have sponsored the medians. Cochin Shipyard, Petronet, Union bank and other banks also have sponsored the medians. The shipyard is currently maintaining 16 medians.

so far has found sponsors for close to 70 per cent medians in the stretch. At present, the sponsors are displaying their name in each median. KMRL has fixed a nominal one-time cost for sponsoring the median and they can choose either normal gardening or biodegradable gardening. The sponsor should spend money on the upkeep of the median for two years.
“KMRL has implemented several green initiatives. Maintaining all the medians was not practical and financially it was not sustainable so KMRL decided to find sponsors for the same. Several sponsors are coming forward to maintain the medians. The medians will not only look good but also help nature” said Alkesh Kumar Sharma IAS, MD KMRL.
“The gardens are maintained in such a way that only shrubs or plants suitable for different seasons are selected. Shrubs are preferred and the same is kept in a decent height to prevent headlight glare. The sponsors are also managing the aftercare as well as maintenance for two years”, it said in a statement.
