But there will most likely be a plan for phase 2 released as construction for both corridors is in full swing.
There are at least 8 more lines planned apart from the 2 in Phase I. Phase II details will come out probably in a year or two. You can check wikipedia for those planned lines. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chennai_Metro

Dwarka Sector 21 City Airport Terminal Metro Station



the glass facade is cool... waiting for the complete finished look


just clicked it at the right time when a plane was approaching the new runway to land... had awesome huge views of planes reaaaallllyyy low :P


that's it... but what's below??? I don;t know... all I know is it is a few hundred metres between the Sector-21 and the Sector 8 Blue Line station... and the concrete boundary walls are bearing the logo of DMRC .. the gaurd mumbled something when I asked him what it was- I could only understand 'Taj'...!!!

so... speculate or whatever, I am not saying that Taj Hotels is building one over here in collaboration with DMRC coz there's been no news... will try to get Info... meanwhle enjoy these mean pix of the building inside the DMRC premises...

view while approaching from the integrated Sector-21 station side:


close-ups :





the cranes:





view from the Dwarka Sector 8 Delhi Metro Blue Line station side:



Dwarka Sector 8 metro station, with a new CGHS - Officers Enclave in the foreground, (which 'officers' no idea :P) - the station has been lying ready since eternity (re: 2 years) but will be opened only when Blue Line gets extended to Sector 21 this September, with the Orange DAME line opening with it:

Just FYI regarding the pics at the above link, they aren't necessarily "glam shots" of the metro, but rather my aim is to document how the metro interacts with the city, and what the surroundings of the metro look like. Please see them as such.

Deboarding at the Patel Chowk station, the Japanese Foreign Minister went round the station and visited the Metro Museum there.

He is a pro-China and self hating Indian. You need not bother about his comments. He is a well known troll.

Anyways, even if some Chinese person trolls here, we should not start criticizing China because that troll does not represents the whole country.

I agree, I have been hasty in my response. I have deleted my previous posts. I would like to thank the contributers to this thread, you have posted some really nice pics of the metro here.

Akshardham station and shikhar are visible in the background. The CW games village is probably hidden behind the (metro) apartments in the foreground.
