Things seem to be moving in the right direction for Chennai Metro. After the news of tunneling work moving at a record pace, now there are reports of two key stretches of Chennai Metro opening by year end.
The upper level line of Chennai Central Metro Rail station linking Nehru Park and Chennai Central, and another stretch from Saidapet to AG-DMS are likely to be operational by this year end. The track work is nearing completion in the Nehru park – Chennai Central stretch, while trail runs are being conducted in the Saidapet to AG-DMS line.
The lower level of Chennai Central Metro Rail Station, which will have trains coming in from Washermanpet, is expected to be open by mid 2018.
