CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): Eight design and engineering firms have submitted bids to prepare three detailed feasibility reports (DFR) for extending the 118.9 km Chennai Metro Phase 2 project by 93 kms to connect Kilambakkam, Parandur Airport, and Avadi.

Three corridors are currently being built as part of Chennai Metro Rail Ltd.’s (CMRL) Phase 2 project for the city: Line-3 (Madhavaram-Siruseri), Line-4 (Lighthouse-Poonamallee), and Line-5 (47 km).

The ambitious new extensions for the project include the following extensions:

Line-3: Siruseri to Kilambakkam Bus Terminus via Kelambakkam (26 km)

Line-4: Poonamallee to Parandur Airport (50 km)

Line-5: Koyambedu to Avadi via Thirumangalam, Mugappair (17 km)

In September 2022, CMRL floated a tender for the line’s feasibility contract (3 packages), which had a 120-day completion deadline. Instead, technical bids were opened at the end of October.

The package I Bidders (Line-4)

Aarvee Associates Engineering & Consultants Pvt. Ltd.

AECOM India Pvt. Ltd.

The brief Scope of the project includes the Selection of a Consultant for the Preparation of a Detailed Feasibility Study Report for the Extension of Chennai Metro Rail Phase –II Corridors.

The chosen consultant for each package will review the city’s Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP) and current transportation choices to create a feasibility report, which will happen around 2023.

Compared to the 9.051 km Phase 1 extension project (Washermanpet to Wimco Nagar), this extension will be far more expensive.
