CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): Detailed Feasibility Reports (DFR) for recommendation of Metro Rail for the Extension of Corridor 5 of Chennai Metro Phase II from Koyambedu to Avadi (Via Thirumangalam, Mugappair) and Extension of Corridor 3 of Chennai Metro Phase II from Siruseri to Kilmbakkam Bus Terminus via Kelambakkam were submitted yesterday.  

People present there include Thiru. M.A. Siddique, I.A.S., Principal Secretary to Government, Managing Director, CMRL to Thiru. Ramesh Chand Meena, I.A.S., Additional Chief Secretary, Special Initiatives, Government of Tamil Nadu at Secretariat, Chennai, Thiru. T. Archunan, Director (Projects), Thiru. T. Livingstone Eliazer, Chief General Manager (PP & D), Tmt. Rekha Prakash, CGM (PD), and Senior Officials of CMRL. 

Proposed Salient features of Detailed Feasibility Reports (DFR) for recommending Metro Rail in Corridor 5 Extension from Koyambedu to Avadi & Corridor 3 Extension from Siruseri to Kilambakkam Bus Terminus via Kelambakkam are as follows.

1. Study for Extension of Corridor 5 of Chennai Metro Phase II from Koyambedu to Avadi (Via Thirumangalam, Mugappair)

The proposed detailed feasibility study recommends Metro Rail for Corridor 5 Extension for a total length of 16.07 km with a tentative 15 nos of elevated stations for an approximate estimated cost of Rs. 6376.18 Cr. 

CMRL recommended considering the recent developments such as the Information Technology Park, land availability, and future growth potential in Pattabiram, the extension from Avadi to Pattabiram can be explored during the DPR stage. Following extensive alignment study at the DPR stage, the total number of stations will be finalized.

2. Study for Extension of Corridor 3 of Chennai Metro Phase II from Siruseri to Kilambakkam Bus Terminus via Kelambakkam:

The detailed Feasibility study was undertaken for the extension of Siruseri to Kilambakkam via Kelambakkam for a total length of 23.5 km with a tentative 12 nos of elevated stations for an approximate estimated cost of Rs. 5458.06 Cr. Considering estimated ridership in the proposed location is less for a Metro System. CMRL is recommending dedicated/improved city bus services in that stretch towards Kilambakkam Bus Terminus. Further study is recommended in the south extension towards Thiruporur, Mahabalipuram via Kelambakkam, which has substantial industrial and residential developments post-completion of the Phase 2 project.
