Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the final 10 km stretch of Phase-I of the Chennai Metro Rail on 10 February 2019. Now the entire 45 km first phase of the Metro Rail network is up and running.


A ride from Washermanpet to Chennai Airport of 21 km stretch will be completed in 45 minutes. The final stretch is entirely underground with stations at AG-DMS, Thousand Lights, LIC, Government Estate, Chennai Central, Madras High Court, Mannady and Washermenpet. The cumulative cost of Phase-I is Rs 14,600 crore.

The network now has two corridors — from Airport to Washermenpet and from St Thomas Mount to Chennai Central via Koyambedu and Egmore. It will also connect with major transport hubs, including Chennai Central, Chennai Egmore and Chennai Mofussil Bus Terminus (CMBT) — allowing passengers to seamlessly switch over to other modes of transport such as bus, sub-urban or MRTS.

The stage is now set for Phase-II of the Chennai Metro, covering 52 km (two corridors) for which soil testing is going on across the city.
