Chennai Metro Rail Project Route Plan
Accuracy < 500m
This seems to be not so useful. This does not cover the entire city. Of course we have the MRTS and regular railway. But it seems the metro will not cut the travel time in a big way because the number of interconnections are very less. This is a metro just for the namesake. This does not cover even 20% of the city.
I have traveled in London Metro. It is said to be the best in the world. Any metro station is always within 1 to 1.5 km distance from any place in the city. So one can just walk to a metro. It really makes the need for owning private vehicles redundant. And they have imposed a tariff on vehicles entering Central London. So people avoid taking their own car/bike to work. They always take the metro. But seeing the map of Chennai Metro, it seems like one has a take his/her car/bike to a station and then travel by Metro. Why would somebody do that when they can just travel by car/bike. By convention, a metro must be within walking distance. This is just another railway like the already existing MRTS and city railway.
The two corridors you see in the map are the phase1 of the project. Apparently there are 7 corridors totally proposed
Yup, This seems to be implemented with a perspective to reduce road traffic in arterial roads.
A good Subway road from north-east Chennai to south-east Chennai
and north-west Chennai to south-west Chennai would have been benefited.
looks like Ex-Traffic policemen was the architect of this project.
metro rail project varathukku innum rompa nal kathurukka vendam just 250 yearskulla namma government atha complete pannirum
i leave in north chennai if the corridor 1 plan atleast starts from tolgate area . i will be very happy bcoz north chennai area has very poor connectivity in passenger transporation to parrys and rest of city north chennai is cruzed by god no projects are excuted all in propsal stage only
Just came across this link, when the above link listed in google search for chennai metro rail,
lets be positive guys, a metro rail is the best way of public transport and it really is a “boost” to any city that wants to call itself a metro! we should proud of it. i am really looking forward to it. i have travelled in european metros, and the one in Delhi is world standard, if we are getting the same its definitely something to be proud of. i just hope they would integrate the redundant “fly rail” stations with this, to use them to the maximum
i am architecture student, i am doing my final year project on metro terminal and with complex. plz if any one know about the proposal site image means plz help me . it will help me for the study. cont no. 9894503084
Guys, this will definitely add a lot of value to the commuters in the city. I have travelled in Tokyo Metro and I know how convenient the system is. It is sure to provide hasslefree transportation. It wont be realistic if we expect Chennai Metro to cover the entire city on its initial phase. Give it a thought.. No city in the world have never done that in one shot. We need to go one step at a time and we are just at the first step. I would appreciate the CMRL officials as they have decided to include some of the most senstitive corridors of Chennai in the first phase itself i.e. the Anna Salai and the Jawaharlal Nehru Road (100 ft road). The Chennai Metro will largely support inter-modal transit systems. I would request you all to go thorugh the article below: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chennai_Metro
Now itself Govt should commence the study/plan for extending the metro from Alandur to Velachery via nanganallur,adambakkam,madipakkam,keelkattalai,medavakkam etc.I have travelled extensively in Singapore MRTs and found their success is mainly due to their mrt routes and stations in most of the residential areas connecting all corridors at more than one statons.
DEAR FRIEND ! HAVE U EVER TRAVELED DELHI METRO. LONDON METRO IS VERY OLD SYSTEM. MR. SRIDHARAN (SOUTH INDIAN )AND THE TEAM MADE DMRC AS A BEUTIFULL METRO RAIL.. SO PL. SEE DELHI METRO.
Pls send me clear map Regard this metro rail map
You can find the detailed map of our Chennai Metro Rail at the below CMRL weblink:
This is a fantastic project to chennai, if its really implemented fully.
We have to proud for this Metro Rail Project, its really boost to our chennai city. I am awaiting for the same…………
I had been to Delhi last week,DMRC is very good had most of my travelling time. With Purchase of smartcard could easily change lines and was able to reach all the places which I wanted to in maximum 30 mins. Otherwise it would normally take 1.30 hrs by road. Lets hope the project gives better and faster transport for chennaites.
Good Luck for CMRL.
Why these people dumping all the things in capital city leads to this costly project (14,600 crore) ? Is these IT firms and outsourcing companies needs any resources which is available only in chennai and not in any part of the state? poor prediction! anyway this amount is not greater than 1.76 lakh crore
Hi all, Can any one tell about the Survey Numbers affected my Metro Rail. Is any Metro line is comming near Vanuvanpet in S.No.259 part Adambakkam Vilalge, Alandur Muncipality.
I think all the rail corridors concentrate on North – South direction of the chennai city. Government should consider of developing a East-West Corridor in Phase-I for better connectivity.
please quick finish for this project
the map is not clear.atleast the station point may fix up clearly
The metro has to be connected to Tambaram as Tambaram, chrompet and pallavaram are the main feeders points for any form of transport. They have metro inside airport which is not connected to any other form of transport . Other stations enroute are also not connected to the bus routes or Sub urban.People should get down in Alandur and change to Metro, Since Metro requires huge volume . they can extend it atleast to Pallavaram and can be elevated . It will cost a bit bit is worth the investment
i love to travel in metro rail and i am eagerly waiting for the metro rail so please finish it fast
this k s teja from chennai
Its really a gud project by CMRL. Im eagerly waiting to welcum tis, which is going to make our city as metro ad its my kind request to CMRL to complete tis project as soon as possible.
metro is good…..but it covers the areas where already good transport is available…..i want the metros to connect such as sriprembature, ponnamalli , IT corriders….but this metro has only introduced traffic in the city…also deforrested the trees and small plants in the medians…….let the future be good….:) THINK AND REACT…also dont do any scandals ..be honest…
If all MRTC rail exact plan if you are display in the net for public it will be usefulle for it veriaus purpose like purches of lands in purticular MRTC project line concent survey no. or not if it is crossing the concernt Survey No.
This form of feedback seems to be not read by officials. Not sure they care for all these. Before implementing or planning they should have high level survey from some university and team. They would give better solutions for Chennai. Just for name sake doing something will not yield anything. Now whatever is being implemented is of enough capacity for the population? MRT’s should cover those clogging roads and try to reduce personal vehicle users. Not to keep their populations same. Also the present plan is to have how many ways? Commuters are left in dark about this. The construction looks like a single go and same track is also for the return! For Chennai, 3 x 3 ways are aloso not enough at the prsent rate.
Who cares for the educated people’s advice?
Who wants all the developments to be at Chennai? Why cant be in other districts too?
On the otherside, companies cash-in on the population like 1 Lakh car, can you people in the government think? 1 Lakh car would further flood the streets! not to speak about the clogged roads?
See, in this chain of feedback who writes first? The real estate broker, who is going to hike the price on seeing the correct route? He needs all the survey numbers!
As a interim requirement, at least 2 way go- 2 way separate return. Should try to cover those roads inside the city, also identify those traffic chokers like T Nagar stores and relocate them to some where near Poonamallee or away. Those who want to purchase for wedding and for the other occasions, they can spend some time going there and get it done. MRT’s must cover today’s suburbs and tomorrow’s urban areas, so that people wont come in everyday. The mass employers also must relocate near to some stations so that they dont employ private buses or cars to commute!
Eagerly waiting for metro rail to come.Please finish it fast.Only one concern is ot connect south chennai from koyembedu.People are facing lot of traffic problems to cross 100ft rd.Metro means traffic .
be quick guys jaya might change it monorail or no rail
be quick guys jaya might change it to monorail or no rail
what is the point is connecting the heart of city in a circle.. rather metro should help decongest the city. and connect the periphery. look at how the tambaram line has saturated. why not decluster and create townships like OMR let us say. sriperumbudur, kanchipuram, poonamallee, tiruvallur. its a no-incremental benefit project. unlikely to breakeven
Metro rail is really awesome. Is ‘ll be useful for each nd every one. If its come really traffic ‘ll be reduce in chennai:)
fantastic project and the work in progress is fast but is not creating hindrance to traffic.fantastic proactive planning
MRTS and normal EMU service should be taken over by CMRL (Chennai Metro) and the whole network should be developed. Monorail should not be executed instead Metrorail should be extended then only a full integrated system will be fulfilled. Many passengers are expecting the same. Every body can travel without getting down and boarding a new train insted can travel by the same train to their respective destination. Metro rail should be extended to chengalpattu. Modernisation is required in EMU services so please consider my request and CMRL should take over EMU service too from Beach to Chengalpattu.
dear sir metro train should be connected to many areas so that people use metro more aand rates of ticket for long distance should be nominal cost affordable for
middle class public
i think metro should propose next project between tiruvallur-sriperumbadur-poonamalle, as they dont have good connectivity. lot of mnc’s are also situated in these areas like caterpillar, tvs delphi, irungattukottai industrial hub, so i hope the government officials will read this.
incharge of metro. sir, i kindly request you to propose route from thiruvanmiyur to pondicherry in east coast road.so that can avoid road accident,traffic and also very useful to school childrens
please send me a clear google map
