New Metro stretches may be launched from Egmore

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.

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 earlier plan was to have the function at the Central station, which sprawls over 70,000 sq.m, but there is a delay in finishing civil and other works and, hence it may not be possible to hold the event at the station, according to the sources. “When the operations begin, all necessary passenger amenities will be available,” an official claims.

But the entry/exit points at the ground level have not been built yet, sources said. Every station needs four entry/exit points, but to begin with, they plan to open only two entry/exit points.

They said it was still not clear when the entire station would be fully finished.

They refused to comment on why there was a long delay in finishing the construction of the station. This led to them choose the Egmore station, which looks completed. “The authorities at the CMRL have inspected this station to see what needs to be set up further for the inauguration,” an official said.

The Egmore metro station is about 8,000 sq.m.

and is located adjacent to the railway station.
