Passing-through trains connecting Alappuzha, Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam, Yeshwantpur and Bengaluru with Dhanbad, Gorakhpur, Barauni, Muzaffurpur, Korba, Shalimar and Guwahati will not touch Chennai Central.
To make way for the final leg of the project to complete the fifth and sixth railway lines between Moore Market Complex and Basin Bridge station to ensure faster movement of trains between Chennai and Arakkonam, Southern Railway administration has planned major changes in the operation of long-distance and suburban train services with immediate effect till October.
Passing-through trains connecting Alappuzha, Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam, Yeshwantpur and Bengaluru with Dhanbad, Gorakhpur, Barauni,
Muzaffurpur, Korba, Shalimar and Guwahati will not touch Chennai Central.
Instead, the trains will halt at Perambur with additional stoppage time between September 6 and October 10.
Additional electrical muliple units would be arranged for commuters to reach Chennai Beach and Avadi.
The Chennai Central– Howrah express will depart from Chennai Beach between September 6 and October 10, Divisional Railway Manager Anupam Sharma told reporters on Saturday.
A press note said that the changes were being made as the project to execute the fifth and sixth lines had entered its final phase and will be completed by October 7.

Worst suggestion , it will slow the schedule.
Shifting to TBM is fine but with a single halt at Egmore.

I feel that, they should make this change permanent. It is better, long distance train skip MAS and halt at Perambur. This will reduce the traffic at MAS considerably.

Thandaiyarpettai Station /Ennore have to be developed as additional stoppages for those train passing through Perambur and skipping Chennai central.
Since Royapuram is highly impossible to developed as additional terminal due to congestion /heritage sites/Royapuram electric loco shed ,Thandaiyarpettai have to be developed as additional terminal for Chennai Metro to ease ever congestion in Chennai Central.

They had done this change for Allp-DHN many years ago . Those days traffic was much lesser than what it is now. The train [13352] used to depart PER in its current time at 20:30 hours and have an early arrival at BZA around 5:30am also by skipping MAS.
Passenger associations then put pressure and then railways reverted back to getting the train halted at Chennai as PER was not well connected and amenities at that time was much lesser. I think they can rethink the decision and get more trains to skip MAS. It will save travel time to quite an extent.
