Chennai Metro Phase 2: Construction of 20 Kms Network Across City Completed
At least 25 locations are connected by the 20 km of phase 2 of the Chennai Metro Rail project, which has been finished in various sections of the city and suburbs.

Phase 2 of the Chennai Metro Rail project has been finished, linking at least 25 locations over a total of 20 km across various city and suburban areas.

Three and a half years ago, the project’s construction got underway. This includes the upline and downline sections of the corridors, which are 10.77 km underground and 10 km above ground.

The 116.1 km Phase 2 consists of three corridors with 118 stations each, one of which being an underground section of 42.6 km connected by 45 stations.

A representative for Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) said that the lines are being installed piecemeal, in small increments. Around 47 stations are currently being built. Work on the entry and exit is ongoing at certain stations, while substructure or superstructure building is going on at other stations. The Times of India cited the official as saying, “They are in various stages.”

Additionally, Manapakkam, Mugalivakkam, Ramapuram, Kovilambakkam, Perumbakkam, Porur, Thelliagaram, Iyyappanthangal, Kattupakkam, Poonamallee, Alapakkam, Shastri Nagar, Retteri, PTC Colony, Okkiyampet, Karapakkam, Okkiyam Thoraipakkam, Vadapalani, Madhavaram, and Venugopal Nagar are connected to one another via elevated viaducts and underground tunnels.

On November 21, 2020, work on the enormous 61,843 crore project got underway. The Managing Director (MD) of CMRL, M A Siddique, has earlier said that Phase 2 would be finished in stages between 2026 and 2028.

Before the end of 2025, the stretch that connects Porur and Poonamallee is anticipated to open first, according to Times Now. The Thirumayilai metro will also be the final to open in 2028. It will act as an interchange between corridors 3 and 4 and the surrounding stations.

The investigations indicate that CMRL separated the three corridors’ work into smaller parts and awarded construction contracts for each, in an effort to expedite the process and guarantee that progress on any one corridor was not hindered by a standstill in another.

There are still areas in several already-barricaded areas, such Mylapore and OMR, where building is ongoing. OMR’s construction on the section from Sholinganallur to Siruseri SIPCOT was halted due to problems with contract awarding.

The CMRL authorities have stated that work on the OMR will soon begin. Furthermore, Mylapore officials stated that construction had stopped on one section when a few businesses filed a lawsuit against their eviction order.
