Wellington Water Works was build in 1933 and now in its Platinum Jubilee.
Every time you travel the Museum-Vellayambalam Road, you are also unwittingly crossing over a 75-year-old engineering marvel - a Travancore-era tunnel.
With one end at the Wellington Water Works, Vellayambalam, the tunnel (Tunnel No: 1) - one of the three running beneath Thiruvananthapuram city with a 33-inch water pipe - will be opened to the public as part of the 75th birthday of Water Works. The Kerala Water Authority is also planning a ‘Water Museum’ at the Water Works campus.
