CMRL to extend phase 2 till proposed airport at Parandur

The Chennai Metro Rail (CMRL) has planned to further extend the Metro rail service in phase II by 93 km in all 3 corridors of phase II.

The extension of Corridor 4 (from Poonamalle to Parandur, where Chennai’s second greenfield airport is likely to come) will be approximately 50 km.

A consultant will be finalised to conduct a detailed feasibility study by October.

Extension of corridor 5 (from Koyambedu to Avadi via-Thirumangalam and Mogappair) will be carried out for 17 km approximately. Corridor 3 (from Siruseri to Kilambakkam Bus Stand) will be approximately 26 km.

Initially, the phase II construction of Metro had been planned for 118.9 km with 128 stations overall. Already being the longest stretch with 3 corridors, the added extension will help residents of the respective locality.
