CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): The Chennai Metro Rail Corporation (CMRL) has commenced work on drafting a tender document for a consultant to conduct a feasibility study on South India’s first inter-state metro connectivity project. The proposed project will connect Bommasandra in Bengaluru to the industrial hub of Hosur in Tamil Nadu. The Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) has approved CMRL’s proposal seeking feasibility study for the Bengaluru-Hosur metro link.

CMRL has written to MoHUA seeking its nod for a metro rail link from Bommasandra to Hosur, which is home to top business houses. The proposed stretch is 20.5 km long, of which 11.7 km is in Karnataka and 8.8 km in Tamil Nadu, which will fund the feasibility study. The Tamil Nadu government has already sanctioned Rs 75 lakh for the study. Karnataka and Tamil Nadu are likely to share the project expenses in their respective states, along with MoHUA.
