9-km North Chennai Metro Line May Open By June 2020

By this time next year, commuters can travel from Wimco Nagar to Airport, covering nearly 31km, on a direct train in a matter of just an hour, as Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) is expediting construction work between Washermenpet and Wimco Nagar to throw open the line for public by June 2020.

That will complete a major portion of the line,” he said. Read more
