Expansion and Investment Boost for Chennai Metro Rail

The allocation of ₹12,000 crore in the Budget for phase II of Chennai Metro Rail signifies a significant push towards enhancing urban mobility infrastructure in the city. With work progressing on the 116-km network, including the Poonamallee to Kodambakkam stretch set for completion by December 2025, the project aims to alleviate traffic congestion and improve connectivity across Chennai.

Additionally, the proposed Airport-Kilambakkam line, along with other corridor expansions, reflects the government’s commitment to modernizing public transportation and facilitating sustainable urban development. The integration of heritage design in the construction of a 27-storeyed building near Chennai Central Railway Station further underscores the holistic approach towards urban revitalization and economic growth through strategic infrastructure investments.
