Free rides, Free eye check up, Free dental camp, now this. CMRL is a Special Purpose Vehicle which should create a positive impact on the lives of people of the people of Chennai. Instead, it should not sell a potential, world class metro through such ideas. The future of Chennai''s transportation can change with metro provided the fares are reasonable (on par with MTC or could be a little higher considering the standards of a metro. Currently it''s ridiculously high). More the people, more the revenue. Central metro may be bigger than Delhi''s Rajiv Chowk and Kashmere Gate but will the footfalls be the same? I doubt if people would throng Central metro station with CMRL charging like this.

Engineers from Chennai Metro Rail Ltd. (CMRL) yesterday afternoon began trial runs (testing) on a 4.5 km underground section of Chennai Metro’s 32.10 km Line-1 between Little Mount and AG-DMS stations. This development comes about 9 months after they ran a diesel-powered overhead electrification (OHE) inspection wagon through it.
CMRL’s engineers manually operated an Altom Metropolis train at a speed of 5 kmph from the elevated Little Mount Station into the down-line underground tunnel via the Saidapet Ramp, and primarily observed the

train’s interaction with the civil structure to ensure there are no physical obstructions along the way. In the coming months, various subsystems like the signalling system, also provided by Alstom, will be tested. The train’s response to being operated at different speeds & braking will also be monitored along with the behavior of the track system and Over Head Electrification (OHE) system.
This 4.5 km section of 54.1 km Phase 1 project includes the 4 km UAA-03 underground package with 4 stations at Saidapet, Nandanam, Teynampet and AG-DMS which were built primarily by the Gammon – Mosmetrostroy JV and abandoned in May 2015 right before the package’s last 2 TBM breakthroughs. Afcons Infrastructure was roped in by the CMRL to perform the section’s final TBM breakthrough in September 2015, and around the same time CMRL awarded a contract to Larsen & Toubro for completing all pending civil work at the 4 stations.
CMRL plans to commission this section in May 2018, but that really depends on if testing is completed as planned and if interior finishing works are over. Here are some images of Saidapet Station shot in February during the state Minister for Industries’ visit.

For commuters who walk in and out of the Saidapet railway station on a daily basis, they have had some of Kollywood’s stars watching over them for the last one month.
As part of the Dann Utsav in October, over 50 children who learn art at the Nalandaway Art labs in government schools painted the walls of a building housing the ticket counter at the station with a mural featuring doyens from Kollywood.
Sivaji Ganesan, M.G. Ramachandran, Padmini, Revathy, Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth feature in the mural.
“Instead

of abstract motifs or designs, we were looking to create a work of art which had a strong connect to the people. When we had brainstorming sessions with the children on what to paint, they all wanted to paint something where people could actually pose and take a selfie with,” said Sriram Aiyer of Nalandaway.
Children from government schools at Tondiarpet, Perambur, Kodambakkam and Perungudi painted the mural for a period of over 10 days.
Gomathi Shankar, manager of projects, Nalandaway, said that they picked the Saidapet station owing to the fact that it had the biggest wall space to offer for the mural among all the stations in the city.
“As a part of the Dann Utsav, 18 stations had been beautified and Nalandaway took up the work for this station. The children worked with Thangaraj, one of their art instructors who guided them on how to go about painting the wall,” he said.
“The feedback we have received over the last month has been very positive. For the impact that Tamil cinema has on most of our lives, we were surprised that there was no public installation like this for it and that has attracted many,” Mr. Sriram said.
