metro tunnels
Construction of twin metro rail tunnels covering nearly 1.4km each between Thiruvanmiyur and SRP Tools on Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR) in Tamil Nadu will start shortly. A survey to map the existing underground utilities like pipelines and cables is underway, while preliminary work on the road surface including removal of structures like median and barricading a portion has already started. The metro rail line will cover nearly 20km from Thiruvanmiyur to Siruseri SIPCOT with 22 stations to link the city's IT hub and the neighbouring residential areas. It is part of the 118.9km three-corridor phase-2 project which is expected to be completed by 2026. The contract for the construction of underground twin tunnels between Thiruvanmiyur and SRP Tools junction has been awarded and tenders have been opened for the construction of underground stations and the elevated lines. OMR will also have two stations and an 18.8km elevated line from Nehru Nagar to Siruseri SIPCOT with 20 stations. The OMR stretch is part of the 45.8km corridor of phase-2 from Madhavaram to Siruseri SIPCOT.
