Resuming Chennai Metro Rail Work Along OMR Stretch

After months of suspension, Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) is set to resume construction work along a section of the OMR for the upcoming phase II project. The work, which covers the corridor from Sholinganallur to SIPCOT, had halted due to the termination of a subcontractor’s contract. However, a new subcontractor has been engaged, and construction is expected to commence shortly after a recent ceremony marking the beginning of piling work.

Although there may be some initial delays in picking up pace, officials are optimistic about progress, with equipment and resources being mobilized to accelerate the construction process. Despite the disruption causing a 3-4 month delay, efforts are underway to mitigate further setbacks and ensure timely completion of the project.
