Chennai is developing


The 14,600-crore project has been approved by the Central Government.

Funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The money will be made available for the project through the Central Government.

The two corridors now accepted for implementation are: Washermanpet to Airport (about 23 km) and Chennai Central to St. Thomas Mount (about 2 km). More project will be taken up after completion of these two projects.

There will be 36 stations in this route. Completion slated for 2015.

Advantages of CMRL project:

Requires only 20% of the energy used by a road transportation system resulting in much less pollution, less noise. A 6-cocach metro rail can easily replace 16 buses or 300 cars or 600 two-wheelers during peak time. Is it not a great blessing for us, Chennaites?

The local government is also contemplating to extend to Tiruvotrtiyur on public demand, but after the first stage is completed.
