Kaloor-Kadavanthra Road links northern and southern parts of Kochi.[1] Kadavanthra became a major hub following the completion of Kaloor-Kadavanthra Road. The presence of the Ernakulam Junction Railway Station and residential colonies raise real estate prices. Kadavanthra provides access to Cochin Shipyard and the naval base.
