CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): The proposed feasibility report which suggests an appropriate mass rapid transit system (MRTS) for Madurai has been completed and submitted to Chennai Metro Rail. The Tamil Nadu government will now soon receive the final detailed feasibility report.

Balaji Rail Road Systems (BARSYL) was given the assignment by Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) early this year and the consultant just finished the draft report, CMRL officials stated.

“We are examining the report. After making all the changes the consultant will incorporate them into the final report. Subsequently, we will hold discussions with the stakeholders and submit it to the state government,” an official said.

This report will include lots of details, including the alignment, the geographic areas the system will serve, the project’s cost and the best kind of transportation system for the city. After the DFR, a detailed project report (DPR) will need to be created which will include information on the design, the kind of stations to be used, the cost breakdown, the time needed to complete the project and the projected passenger traffic.

The centre once suggested MetroLite or MetroNeo for Tier II and Tier III cities. These two networks will be more affordable and smaller than the conventional metro rail systems.

The alignment between Othakadai and Tirumangalam is among those investigated.

A feasibility study will be carried out for a number of cities including Salem, Tiruchi and Tirunelveli in addition to Madurai.
