Inauguration of Naval Base Bus Shelter at Kochi
A covered bus shelter, near naval base, Kochi was formally inaugurated by Shri Hibi Eden Member of Parliament, Ernakulam on 24 Febuary 2020 who dedicated it for the use of local populace in the presence of Commodore N Anil Joseph, VSM, Station Commander, Kochi Naval Area. The bus shelter was erected by Indian Navy adjacent to Travancore Gate of naval base to cater for the requirements of the public who commute to and from the Naval Base.
The long pending demand for a bus shelter from the general public caused Shri Hibi Eden, to request the Indian Navy to undertake construction of a covered bus shelter. The bus shelter has been erected at a cost of approximately Rs. 3.88 lakhs and would provide a great respite to the commuters going to west Kochi from naval base.
Speaking on the occasion, Shri Hibi Eden thanked the navy for providing a bus shelter for the commuters heeding to his request despite facing many roadblocks and objections with regard to construction. A number of civilian and service personnel as well as local commuters witnessed the inauguration and dedication of bus shelter.
