Chennai Metro 2 underground station construction begins

The ambitious Chennai Metro Rail?s phase-2 project has marked a significant milestone with the initiation of construction activities for underground stations along Corridor-3, connecting Madhavaram to SIPCOT via Thirumayilai. The underground stations at key locations, including Otteri, Pattalam, and Perambur, are now underway.

The phase-2 project encompasses three key corridors: Madhavaram to SIPCOT via Thirumayilai (Corridor-3), Light House to Poonamallee via T Nagar (Corridor-4) and Madhavaram to Sholinganallur via Medavakkam (Corridor -5).

Corridor-3, spanning a total length of 45.4 km, stands out as the longest corridor in the phase-2 project. It strategically connects areas from the northern to southern parts of Chennai, traversing densely populated and bustling locations such as Madhavaram, Purasawalkam, Perambur, Royapettah, Thirumayilai, Mandaiveli, Adyar, Taramani, Perungudi, Thoraipakkam, and Siruseri.

The construction kick-off in Corridor-3 holds particular significance, considering the earlier delays in the Madhavaram-Taramani stretch due to tender cancellations and re-flotations. This setback resulted in a delay of over a year.
