CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): Chennai Metro Rail Ltd. (CMRL) is currently exploring the possibility of running direct trains from stations located in Anna Salai. At present, commuters change trains at Alandur. If this new plan is executed without any problems, then the commuters who board trains at stations such as Koyambedu, Vadapalani or Ekkatuthangal can travel directly to Guindy, Saidapet, Teynampet or Nandanam in Anna Salai without changing trains at Alandur.

The aim of this new plan is to save the time and efforts of the passengers while travelling.

CMRL’s Phase I project with about 45 km distance has two corridors —Washermenpet to Airport (Corridor I – 23 km) and Chennai Central to St. Thomas Mount (Corridor II –21. 96 km). There are direct trains in some stretches which include from Chennai Central to the airport, Chennai Central to St. Thomas Mount and Washermenpet to the airport.

The officials are currently conducting a study and inspection to see if this plan can be executed effectively. According to the sources, if it is executed as planned, the frequency of Metro trains on some stretches may be reduced.
