The project aims at setting up a system where different modes of transport converge at one single point making commutation easy for the public. The Project aims at setting up a system where different modes of transport converge at one single point making commutation easy for the public. Thus, the aim is to set up a mobility hub for Kochi, which is futuristic and technology driven and is able to cater to the ever-growing traffic and transport demands of the city.
According to a report drafted by CII, the site for the mobility hub in Vyttila is well-connected with all routes. It serves as a meeting point for all intercity and intra-city roads. The site is connected to the city through the Sahodaran Ayyapan Road. It is connected to Edappally and Kakkanad providing hassle free transition in various directions. Passengers can easily get down at the bus terminal at the hub and use the Mass Transit System like the inter-city bus, auto, taxi or metro train to enter the city. The site offers a sprawling 25 acres of land to develop 71 bus bays and 150 ideal bus parking spots for long and short distance buses. While accommodating 900 cars and 120 autorickshaws in its parking lots, it has the potential to host a world-class mega shopping mall, food courts, cultural centre and health club, a hotel, a 50m swimming pool, and a boat jetty in a total buildup area of 13,70,000 sq ft.
The entrance and exit points of the site are connected to National Highway 47, Eroor (via Kaniyampuzha Road connecting Vyttila and Eroor) and Tripunithura (via Vyttila Tripunithura Road).
Like any other city, Kochi experiences urban problems such as traffic-choked streets to grime and pollution, making life in the city often less than desirable. The Vyttila mobility hub has been envisioned as a long-term transport solution for the city. But everything depends on the approval from the State Government.
