Metrorail tweaks line to connect core Chennai and western suburbs

March 15, 2019

    When a metro train operates from Lighthouse on the Marina, people who are now settling down in rapidly developing localities such as Iyappanthangal, Kattupakkam and Poonamallee could also board a direct train to the heart of the city.

    Chennai Metro Rail Ltd. (CMRL) has changed the alignment on one of the corridors in Phase 2 to link areas in the western suburbs.

    Certainly, these neighbourhoods were added to the alignment after a decision was taken to extend the line to Poonamallee.

    As a result, Corridor 4 will now stretch from Lighthouse in the west cutting across Mylapore, Nandanam, T Nagar and Kodambakkam.

    Under the earlier alignment, the line was also passing via Vadapalani, passport office in Saligramam, VirugambakkamKoyambedu and join CMBT.

    Now, it will bypass Koyambedu and Virugambakkam, pass through Alwarthirunagar, Porur, Iyyappanthangal, Karayanchavadi and reach Poonamallee Bypass.

    Above all, commuters can shift corridors through five interchange stations on the western suburbs —Alwarthirunagar, Valsaravakkam, Karabakkam, Alapakkam junction and Porur junction.



    Moovit wishes you happy and safe travelling!!
