B Anbuselvan ByExpress News ServiceCHENNAI: A new subway that connects Central station with Central metro, MRTS and suburban stations was thrown open a few days ago.With this, traffic police have banned pedestrian crossing at the busy junction of EVR Periyar Salai (Poonamallee High Road) in-front of Central station.
As part of Metro works, a subway was proposed to link Central with Chennai metro, Park Town station (MRTS), Park station (suburban) and Rajiv Gandhi Government General hospital.
Though the Airport - Nehru Park metro train services were extended till Central in May last year, the subway link from Central metro to Central station was delayed.
A few months later, Chennai metro developed a pathway connecting Central metro station with Park Town station parallel to Hutton Bridge (Stanley viaduct) towards Pallavan salai.
“Given that Central - Park station subway and Central - Central metro subways linked, rail commuters can now access the Metro, Central station and Park stations through subways.
