Beach station to undergo transformation as Chennai Metro Rail plans to take over MRTS

Chennai Metro Rail plans to take over the Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS), running between Beach and Velachery, from Southern Railway. The Beach station is expected to undergo a huge makeover as Metro Rail plans to convert it into a railway terminus. While the MRTS stations will undergo a transformation to be at par with Chennai Metro Rail stations, the MRTS fares might also increase.

The suburban rail network that operates from beach station will continue to be under Southern Railway.
