Chennai’s Rs 40.80-bn metro extension to airport gets nod

The path has been cleared for the construction of Chennai’s airport-Kilambakkam metro line, as the Highways Department has approved the execution of the Rs 40.80 billion project. Chennai Metro Rail Ltd (CMRL) plans a mass rapid transit system between airport and Kilambakkam as an extension of the Phase I project in the southern part of the city. CMRL will make provisions for future projects of the highways department, such as an elevated corridor, on this stretch. Only some changes will be made regarding the height of the metro rail’s viaduct in certain locations.

The 15.3-km airport-Kilambakkam project will run through important locations in the southern suburbs with stations at Pallavaram, Kothandam Nagar, Chromepet, Mahalakshmi Colony, Thiru Vi Ka Nagar, Tambaram, Irumbuliyur, Peerkankaranai, Perungalathur, Vandalur, Arignar Anna Zoo and Kilambakkam Bus Terminus.
