COIMBATORE(Metro Rail News): The DPR (Detailed Project Report) for Phase 1 of the Coimbatore Metro Rail Project has not yet been approved by the Tamil Nadu government, according to the Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL), the project executing agency. The CMRL has not begun any work, including land acquisition, as the DPR submitted by consultants has not been approved.

The feasibility study for Coimbatore Mass Rapid Transit System (144 km) was conducted by Systra and Rites Ltd, with the DPR for Phase 1 of the project, worth Rs 9,424 crore, submitted last year. In response to an RTI query filed by a city-based social activist, the CMRL stated that it is waiting for government approval before proceeding. The activist expressed concerns about the uncertainty surrounding the project’s start date, land acquisition, compensation, and other issues affecting those living and trading on Avinashi Road. However, the CMRL did not provide any answers to the nine topics raised by the activist.
