Water Transport

Thiruvananthapuram District is noted for its rivers, lakes, and coast line .These natural favours from Thiruvananthapuram to kozhikode District gives plentiful opportunity to those who like to make journey through water ways. However, the outdated two tunnels of 282 meters and 721 meters at Varkala obstruct the water transport at present. Though the Government makes effort to revitalize these waterways, it does not find its outcome. The government of kerala has started a project of international deep-water container transshipment at vizhinjam. The acquisition of the land for the project is going on... The present project will soon be completed and it will open new ways for water transport.
