This will soon be a major a Tourist attraction as well as an economical cargo transport mode. Vallakadavu – Kollam stretch (68 km) is nearly complete. The 722 metre Sivagiri tunnel (constructed in 1880), and 350 metre Chilakoor tunnel, have been made navigable. Trial run was carried out by 24-seater indigenously-manufactured solar boat procured by the Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL). Regular transport and cargo services are to be started at the earliest.
