Chennai Metro|St. Thomas Mount Metro station work yet to be completed

Share post:

Chennai: The St. Thomas Mount station, one of the biggest elevated stations of the Chennai Metro Rail, has not been completed yet even five months after the first train carrying commuters ran on the stretch.

The station was planned to be commissioned in time for the first service between Koyambedu and St. Thomas Mount, but slow construction work at that time forced the officials to stop the service at Alandur station itself.

But, officials of the Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) said the construction work was going on as per schedule and there was no delay.

“The track work from Alandur to St. Thomas Mount was completed sometime ago. The station work will also be over in the coming months,” an official said.

One of the reasons for the delay in the construction of the station was the termination of the contract of Consolidated Construction Consortium Ltd. (CCCL) more than a year ago and the subsequent awarding of the contract to another company.

This station — that integrates MRTS station — would see at least 5,000 people travelling through it and also have parking facility for about 1000 vehicles. Recently, the officials launched a trial run from Officers’ Training Academy (OTA) to Little Mount.

In the coming weeks, they would extend the trial run from Alandur to St. Thomas Mount. The State government announced that the service between the Little Mount and the Chennai airport would be launched in 2016, and officials were planning to commission the station around the same time.
