The venue for the inaugural of the Metro Rail’s two new underground stretches might be the Egmore Metro Rail station and not the Central station, as planned earlier, sources at the Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) said. The Egmore metro station is about 8,000 sq.m. Every station needs four entry/exit points, but to begin with, they plan to open only two entry/exit points. This led to them choose the Egmore station, which looks completed. But the entry/exit points at the ground level have not been built yet, sources said.
