TN to extend Phase-II metro corridor to Sriperumbudur
The state government is all set to carry out feasibility studies to extend three corridors of metro rail phase-2, which includes a line to Sriperumbudur via Thirumazhisai. The 118.9km phase-2 lines of metro rail will cost ₹61,843 crore and is likely to be ready by 2025, said state finance minister PTR Palanivel Thiagarajan. The feasibility study will be conducted to extend Light House to Poonamallee bypass corridor-4 of phase-2 to Sriperumbadur. The extension of the line will cater to the Thirumazhisai satellite town, intercity bus terminuses and also the growing number of factories and companies along the Chennai-Bengaluru national highways. Already, preparation is underway for a 4km stretch from Poonamallee bypass to Thirumazhisai satellite townships. The metro line to Sriperumbudur will also be an advantage as the two sites now identified for a second airport for Chennai - Pannur and Parandur - are near Sriperumbudur. Southern Railway is also carrying out a final location survey for a line from Avadi to Sriperumbudur. The government has announced feasibility studies to extend metro rail's corridor-5 from Thirumangalam to Avadi via Mogappair and Ambattur. Currently, the proposed corridor-5 links Madhavaram with Sholinganallur via Koyambedu, Alandur and Madipakkam. The extension is expected to ease traffic congestion in the densely populated northwest greater Chennai localities. Metro rail's Madhavaram-Siruseri Sipcot via OMR corridor-3 will be extended from Siruseri to Kelambakkam for which a study will be conducted to assess the need for transport services for the growing residential complexes and commercial development along this stretch.
