CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): Chennai Metro Rail Limited(CMRL) reduced the phase II project’s length and station count.

According to officials, the number of stations has decreased from 128 to 118, and the project’s length has been cut from 118.9 kilometres to 116 km. On Wednesday, the Madras High Court instructed CMRL to post the updated route alignment map on its website. This order has led to CMRL uploading the map.

The three corridors of the Phase II project, anticipated to cost 61,843 crores, have recently undergone revisions. From Madhavaram to SIPCOT, Corridor 3 will now be 45.4 km long instead of its previous 45.8 km. Corridor 5, which was once 47 km long and ran from Madhavaram to Sholinganallur, has now been shortened to 44.6 km. However, Corridor 4 is still 26.1 km long between Poonamallee and the Light House.

According to an official, Corridor 3 from Madhavaram to SIPCOT will have 47 stations (from Light House to Poonamallee), while Corridor 4 and 5 from Madhavaram to Sholinganallur will have 27 and 44 stations, respectively.
Many stations, including Medavakkam, St. Joseph College, and Doveton Junction, were abandoned because they were too close to one another and did not require the necessary investment.
