CHENNAI(Metro Rail News): The Chennai Metro Rail Ltd (CMRL) has resumed piling work at numerous locations, including the Adyar river, and commuters of the metro rail eagerly awaiting the completion of the 47-km length connecting Madhavaram with Sholinganallur.

The proposed corridor, which runs through the major IT parks, including WIPRO, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), and Infosys, as well as industrial estates, including Small Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu (SIPCOT) and Nehru Nagar Industrial Estate, is likely to provide commuters with much-needed relief whose only mode of transportation is the bus.

According to a Metro Rail official, piling work has begun for the elevated section of CMRL’s Corridor-5 near Nandambakkam along the Adyar river. They said that the contract for the elevated stretch which has been divided into three packages has been awarded. It has been learned that the elevated portion of Corridor-5 will be 40.07 km long and 5 km underground.

“Across all of the elevated lengths, the foundation and pier works have begun, for which a tender has been awarded. The tender has been called for the underground length, official sources stated. 48 stations will be on the railway, including six subterranean, one at grade, and 41 elevated. The State government recently announced a feasibility study to expand the metro rail’s corridor-5 from Thirumangalam to Avadi through Mogappair and Ambattur, though details are not yet available.
