Chennai: CMRL (Chennai Metro Rail Ltd.) will soon begin tracks laying on Anna Salai from Government Estate to AG-DMS. Two contractors – L&T & Kalindee Rail Nirman Engineers Ltd. – have been roped in simultaneously for this, according to officials of the CMRL. This work is likely to be completed in 6 months.
- A source said,“We are looking to divide the work equally. L&T may carry out track work from AG-DMS to LIC and Kalindee Rail Nirman Engineers Limited will finish the remaining work from Government Estate to LIC. As part of this, they also have to lay the track from Chennai Central to Government Estate. They have started the initial work for this now like placing rail panels, but the actual work itself may begin only next month.”
- Officials said, the total distance for laying track in this stretch will be around 6 km.
- A source said,“The plan is to complete this final stretch by the end of next year so that the entire phase I of Chennai Metro Rail is up and running. But this can happen only if the contractors meet the deadline.”
