Two major sections of the Chennai Metro will be thrown open to the public by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edapadi K Palaniswami and Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Puri today (25 May), reports The Hindu. Union Minister of State for Shipping Pon Radhakrishnan and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam will also be present.
The first stretch will be the Chennai Central to Nehru Park section on the Green Line that will mark the complete opening of the line from Central to St Thomas Mount. The second stretch is from AG-DMS (also known as Gemini) to Little Mount station on Mount Road. Both lines meet at Chennai Central with the remaining section of the Blue Line still under construction.
The opening of Chennai Central station will mean that residents of the city can now take a train from either of the city’s outstation termini – Central and Egmore – to the outstation bus terminal – Chennai Mofussil Bus Station (CMBT) at Koyambedu – and also to the Chennai International Airport at the southern end of the city.
