CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): As part of the upcoming 118.9-km phase II project, Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) has planned to construct an at-grade station at Venugopal Nagar in the northern region of the city. The station will be partially underground and partially above ground level. CMRL officials have stated that the Venugopal Nagar station falls in corridor 5 of phase II project, which connects Madhavaram to Sholinganallur. The concourse or ticketing level of this station will be built at ground level, while the platform will be constructed underground.

The upcoming phase II project of Chennai Metro Rail will feature an at-grade station at Venugopal Nagar in the northern part of the city. Unlike other stations in the project, which are either elevated or underground, this station will be half-underground and half-on-ground. According to officials of Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL), the Venugopal Nagar station is located in corridor 5 of the phase II project, connecting Madhavaram to Sholinganallur. It will serve as a link between an elevated corridor in corridor 5 (Assissi Nagar to Retteri Junction) and the underground stretch in corridor 3 (Madhavaram to Taramani), hence the unique construction plan.

According to sources, work on the construction of this station has been underway for the past few months. Officials have stated that there will be two entry and exit points for commuters, and sufficient parking space will be made available.
