Kochi: The apparent quality of work on Kochi Metro stations is better than that of Bengaluru & Chennai metros and the safety certificate to commence commercial operations on its 13.20-kilometres-long Aluva-Palarivattom corridor will be submitted to KMRL on Monday, CMRS (Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety) K.A. Manoharan has said.
