With the addition of 700-metre the total walkway length in Marine Drive is now 4.5 km.
Greater Cochin Development Authority (GCDA) has developed 700-metre long, 12-metre wide Marine Drive walkway in Kochi with a novelty touch. It has a Kettuvallam (houseboat) shaped bridge. The bridge has a restaurant and a refreshment centre. From atop the tower in the restaurant the public can view the beauty of backwaters and city.
In the near future there will be a cable car service, the first of its kind in the State. A snow city and and an open stage at north end will also come up.
