CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) begin the necessary cleaning and other preparatory work on May 4, 2020, at the ‘Central Square’ and the Wimco Nagar Depot after a gap of nearly a month and a half.

We will have only about 25-30% of the workforce in the construction site now, till the situation improves,” an official said.

The workers will be permitted into the sites only after temperature tests and if they don’t complain of any disease. Their tents are constantly disinfected too, to ensure there are no issues, the official said.
