CHENNAI, INDIA (Metro Rail News): For the first time, Metro rail has taken the initiative to install flood-proof doors to the pedestrian subways, which are connected to some underground stations, to prevent the entry of rainwater into the stations. As per the official statement, the doors are placed near the Government Estate, Anna-Nagar East Stations, AG-DMS. However, due to this, the metros will remain shut for some time for the general public.

Apart from the water leaking problem, the Government Estate Metro Station also faces the waterlogging issue as the rainwater enters the station. Recently, the forecast issued by the government of heavy rainfall made the government install the doors at all the entry points of the two subways linked to the Government Estate Metro Station.

According to the official reports, CMRL is also planning to install the same doors at Saidapet station. Moreover, a small bund is also built-in front of the subway’s entry point to prevent rainwater from flowing inside. The bund is temporary and will be removed once the rain stops. The doors would be used again and again during the rainy season to prevent underground seepage.
