Background:

  • The Kerala government’s proposed ‘Silver Line’ project has received in-principle permission from the Ministry of Railways.

The Project’s Background:

  • It entails the construction of semi-high-speed railways between Kerala’s two corners.
  • It stretches over 532 kilometers.
  • The corridor will be constructed separate from the existing Thiruvananthapuram-Thrissur route.
  • Its goal is to link major cities and districts with semi-high-speed trains that will travel on their own lines.
  • The nodal agency would be the Kerala Rail Development Corporation (K-Rail), a joint venture between the Ministry of Railways and the Kerala government that will carry out projects on a cost-sharing basis.
