    More update. :)

    While the Phase-I of the Chennai Metro Rail is slowly taking shape, CMRL is going to be busy with the Phase-II of the project. The alignments have been finalized. Phase-II covers 104.5 kms. Personally I think the connectivity to Siruseri will be hugely beneficial.

    Phase-II Alignment (Phase-I alignment is marked in dotted black)

    Now, Air travelers can take the battery operated shuttle FOC from the Metro station to the Airport terminal. :)

    Even heard that they would be converting the existing MRTS into Metro which would be wonderful.

    MRTS is a great project which TN govt took long back before metro came into India. It would be nice to see latest metro coaches in MRTS lines. Also I feel that the metro works in other cities like Coimbatore, Madurai should start. As I read in somewhere the development of a place is not just about poor man using public transports but even the rich shunning their cars and commute in them. One such service is our metro.

    Wow! wish it could be avoided. Or was it never a consideration, the aerial view..

    Am I the only one bothered by that atrocity. :)
