Chennai Mono Rail gains speed

The traffic congestion in the city would soon be a thing of the past with chief minister Jayalalithaa showing keen interest in speeding up the 100-km Mono Rail project and also introduce it in Tiruchy, Madurai and Coimbatore.

Experts say that the Mono Rail will link most of Chennai and suburbs and will be a welcome addition to Metro Rail now under progress.

When completed, Chennai will have a four-tier train system comprising the old electrical multiple unit (EMU) linking Beach to Tambaram, mass rapid transit system (MRTS) from Beach to St Thomas Mount, Metro Rail between Washermanpet and airport and mono rail (routes yet to be finalised).

“The Mono Rail’s advantages include safety, quicker project execution, low noise pollution and lower cost to consumer,” said a senior government official. “But it can carry less number of passengers when compared to the metro.”

The Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) in its second master plan had suggested that mono rail could be operated in two routes, Dams Road-Royapettah-Mylapore-Adyar-Guindy Halda
junction and Lighthouse MRTS station-Anna flyover-Kilpauk-Perambur at a cost of `1,480 crore.


When the AIADMK government was in power in 2006 the Pallavan Tran-sport Consultancy Ser-vices had also recommended a Mono Rail project.

IMHO, Parrys-Kelambakkam stretch must be taken up first.

Mumbai monorail activity is not upto the mark but practically monorain project can be completed very fast since land acquisition & cost is very less compare to metro if they choose the line accordingly. we can hope both metro & Mono will be ready by 2015.

Chennai monorail project should act as feeder to the current metro lines planned of Corridor 1&2 and Suburban services as well:

My wishlist of mono rail routes will be :

-- Saidapet - Adyar - Tiruvanmiyur - Kelambakkam

-- Tambaram -- Medavakkam -- Sholinganallur

-- Avadi - Ambattur - Ambattur Est. -- Tirumangalam

-- Tambaram -- Poonamalle - Avadi

-- Tirumangalam -- MMDA colony - Valluvar Kottam -- T.Nagar -- Sidapet

I hope for porur-vadapalani-tnagar-nandam-adyar route. instead of having porur parrys, this will be better. either tranfer to parrys can happen at nandanam metro or take vadapalani central metro.

Sick and tired of this route. from kodambakkam to porur is one hell.
