Chennai Metro | Underground tunnel likely to be ready ahead of schedule

Chennai: The city’s first underground metro line is likely to be ready way before its deadline in December 2016, as it has reached the final stages of inspections.

A trial run with a four-car train was conducted on the 2.7km stretch between Shenoy Nagar and Tirumangalam recently after electrification was completed. Work at the four underground stations is almost nearly complete with minor work like setting up of emergency stairs and plastering being done.

CMRL officials say they are likely to receive an approval from the commissionerate of metro rail safety in the next four months. Getting a safety certification from the commissionerate is a pre-requisite for getting the final go-ahead to run the services.

The stretch, which will give residents of upmarket localities access to the mass transit system, will link Koyembedu through a ramp, which in turn will give connectivity to the Chennai airport. The elevated stretch between Saidapet and Chennai Airport is also undergoing trial runs.

Metro rail was launched in June 2015 with the inauguration of the 10km elevated line between Koyembedu and Alandur.

With the lines between Shenoy Nagar and Tirumangalam, and Saidapet and Airport reaching final stages of approval, officials hope it will increase their patronage.
