      Chennai, April 12 : The Tamil Nadu government Tamil Nadu government has
      engaged the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to prepare a project
      report for a metro rail system for Chennai.

      The report, to be prepared at a cost of Rs.33 million, will be
      completed in six months, Chief Minister J. Jayalalitha told the state
      assembly Tuesday.

      Simultaneously, efforts would be made to identify an organisation for
      undertaking the work and raising funds for the massive project, she
      said.

      The DMRC, which prepared a detailed feasibility study report, had
      recommended that the metro rail project for Chennai could be undertaken
      with a focus on three corridors - Tiruvottiyur to Chennai airport along
      Anna Salai (31.54 km), Chennai beach to Koyambedu along the E.V.R.
      Periyar Salai (13.54 km) and an additional network of 21.68 km from
      Tiruvanmiyur to Ambattur industrial estate.

      The additional network could be undertaken in the second phase of the
      project beyond 2016, the report said.

      The Tiruvottiyur-airport segment would have 8.4 km underground stretch
      and the rest would be an elevated system.

      The project was likely to be completed in five years, Jayalalitha said.

      Chennai, April 12: After Calcutta and New Delhi, it�s the southern
      metro�s turn to go underground.

      Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa today announced in the Assembly
      her government�s intention to build a three-corridor, partly
      underground metro rail system in the state capital.

      The model for the project will be the New Delhi metro, which was
      flagged off in 2002, and not Calcutta � where underground rail took off
      in 1984, though work began way back in 1972.

      The first phase of the Chennai project is estimated to cost Rs 5,086.85
      crore. It would be implemented between 2005 and 2010.

      A study was carried out by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, which gave
      its feasibility nod to the project, the chief minister said.

      Delhi�s metro authorities had also taken up the study on a proposed
      underwater railway in Calcutta. But the project was shelved as the
      Bengal government said it could not shell out Rs 2,400 crore as its
      share in the project.

      Chennai adds 600 vehicles each day but roads cover 3 to 4 per cent of
      the total land area, Jayalalithaa pointed out.

      Between 1984 and 2004, the number of vehicles in the city has shot up
      by more than 10 times, from 1.4 lakh to 16 lakh.

      The Delhi metro corporation has recommended developing the Chennai
      metro along three corridors.

      Corridors I and II would be taken up in the first phase.

      The first will cover 31.54 km from Tiruvottiyur in the north to the
      airport along the arterial Anna Salai. Of this, about 8.4 km could be
      underground and the rest will be an elevated railway �at the central
      median of the corridors�, Jayalalithaa said.

      The second corridor will cover 13.54 km from Chennai Beach to
      Koyambedu, along Periyar EVR Salai. The two corridors would cater to
      about 10.56 lakh commuters everyday.

      The third corridor would come up later in the second phase.

      CHENNAI, APRIL 12: A massive five-year plan is under way for setting
      up a metro rail project in Chennai. Estimated to cost Rs 5,086.85
      crore, the first phase of the project is to be completed by 2010. It
      will cover 31.54-km from Tiruvottiyur to the airport through Anna Salai
      and the 13.54-km stretch from Chennai Beach to Koyambedu along the EVR
      Periyar Salai.

      The Tiruvottiyur-airport segment would have 8.4 km underground system
      and the rest in an elevated system in the central median.

      An additional network, from Thiruvanmiyur to Ambattur through Luz,
      Nandanam, and T Nagar, also is proposed. However, the work for that is
      to be taken up after 2016 only.

      These proposals are made by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC)
      which has completed a feasibility report. Tamil Nadu chief minister J
      Jayalalithaa told the state Assembly that the Corporation is to submit
      a detailed project report in six months time at a cost of Rs 3.30
      crore.

      Simultaneously efforts would be taken to determine the organisation for
      undertaking the work and funding arrangements for the massive project,
      she said.
