Chennai Metro Rail – Beware of Land Acquisition

You have read the recent news of Chennai metro rail getting some renewed focus from law makers. While it is of strategic importance to chennai people, the fact which is worrying me the land acquisition for the project. You must be aware that there are 2 corridors being planned. What worries me the most is the elevated corridor.

Currently the corridors planned are Washermanpet to Airport and Fort to St.Thomas mount. The fort to St.thomas mount corridor starts at Fort and traverses thro Shenoy Nagar, Anna Nagar, Koyembedu, vadapalani , KK Nagar to reach st thomas mount. The worrying part for me is this stretch is mostly Elevated corridor.



While i have no idea how and where would be the land acquisition for this stretch.As of now, i believe there would be more land acquired for this streatch then the Washermanper -Airport corridor which has a mix of Underground and elevated rail track. So keep you eyes wide open and i would advise caution while investing on any property which might be likely acquired for this project.

I feel property along the main road in arcot road can be affected as i read in this below PDF that the rail tracks travel right on the road median.
