CHENNAI | Public Transport


Official Chennai Metro Website


Project Introduction

Phase I of the Chennai metro includes 2 lines totaling 45.1 kms. It is slated to be completed by 2014. The first section of line 1 between the Airport and Teynampet (14 kms) will be thrown open to commuters around late 2012. In Phase 1, The Chennai Metro Rail Corp is going to procure 42 train sets with a a 4 car configuration.

55% of Phase I will be underground with the rest being elevated. There will be 34 stations with 15 being elevated and the rest 19 underground. The Chennai Central and St. Thomas Mount will serve as interchange stations for both corridors. The metro will be fully integrated with other forms of transportation - the Indian railways, the airport, bus terminal and the suburban mass transit system (MRTS).

CHENNAI | Monorail

http://www.business-standard.com/art...1300494_1.html

Quote:
After the successful commercial launch of the monorail project in Mumbai, the state of Tamil Nadu is gearing up to implement a similar project in Chennai. A State government undertaking has called for Request for Qualification (RFQ) from the interested parties to implement the proposed Rs 3,200 crore.

In his budget speech today, Tamil Nadu's Finance Minister O Pannerselvam said that in the 2014-15 Budget it was decided to allocate Rs 200 crore to take up the preliminary works towards the monorail project.

The estimated length of the project is 20.68 kms and estimated cost of the project is $522million (around Rs 3,235 crore). The project will be taken up through public, private partnership (PPP), on design, build, finance operate and transfer (DBFOT) basis.

The project will be implemented by Metropolitan Transport Corporation (Chennai) Ltd (MTC). The Corporation has called for RFQ from the interested parties to bring out a detailed scope of work, eligibility criteria, feasibility report, ridership estimation report, MTC Bus passenger data and others.

The project will run between Poonamallee to Kathipara with a link from Porur to Vadapalani.
