For Metro, days of swift subterranean action ahead

City’s first underground line from Thirumangalam to Nehru Park fast-tracked

Chennai Metro Rail is speeding up laying of tracks from Thirumangalam to Nehru Park, the first underground network in the city.

Officials said work had been completed between Thirumangalam and Pachaiyappa’s College stations, about 5 km apart, on the upward and downward lines.

The total distance between Thirumangalam and Nehru Park is about 7 km.

“We plan to complete it in three months after which electrical and signalling work will begin. We have carried out trials on a few occasions on this stretch,” an official said.

Now, laying of tracks towards the Kilpauk Medical College station has begun.

The track work began in March last year, but rain and other factors delayed it.

Work is on to install platform screen doors at Thirumangalam and Anna Nagar Tower and East stations.

Underground stations will have such doors to prevent passengers from entering the tracks.

The doors are positioned in such a way that they will open alongside the carriage doors when trains arrive.

The Rs. 14,600-crore Metro will have 24 km of underground and 21 km of elevated network.

The first service was opened between Koyambedu and Alandur, an elevated stretch, in June last year.

In two months, the next stretch from Little Mount to the Chennai airport will be opened.


Get off the metro, pedal to work on cycle

The joy of zipping past vehicles on the city's traffic-choked roads on the metro comes to an abrupt stop at your station. Then, you have to figure out how to get to your destination.

But a section of commuters will soon be able to hop on to a bicycle at the station, head to work on a dedicated cycle track and return the cycle on the way back.

As a pilot project, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is building a dedicated cycle track on the pavement from Baiyappanahalli Metro Station to the nearby RMZ Infinity, a tech park where over 10,000 employees work. The cycle track will be one kilometre long.

More cycle tracks to tech parks

It’s not just RMZ Infinity. Bagmane Tech Park, Embassy Golf Links and Millennium Tower Old Philip Building may also be connected by dedicated cycle lanes to the nearest metro stations.

INDIAN RAIL - Need a network of tracks’

Are dedicated cycle tracks from metro stations mean development of infrastructure in isolated silos? Yes, and will be unsustainable in the long run unless integrated into a network of cycle tracks, say urban commute experts.
