The Kochi Municipal Corporation and Kerala Merchants Chamber of Commerce signed a Memorandum of Association (MoU) for the maintenance and beautification of Broadway, one of the oldest and busiest trade centres in the city. As per the project, the Broadway will be spruced up with 52 ornamental lamp posts with lamp shades starting from Shanmugham Road to Canal Road, surveillance cameras and arches. Cast iron benches will also be installed on either side of the Broadway. In addition, the Broadway will be equipped with mobile food kiosks that functions from 9pm to 1pm.
