The construction of long-awaited foot over bridge at Alandur metro station is finally in progress across the busy GST Road. Alandur metro station is an elevated metro station that is part of the Blue Line and the Green Line of the Chennai Metro, and serves as an interchange station between the two lines. The station is one of the two metro stations where the two lines intersect, the other being the Chennai Central metro station. It is the city’s first multi-level railway station.
It is the only station where passengers from the two corridors can swap the direction of travel. As the station acts as a transit point for two different corridors of the Chennai Metro, the two lines are constructed at two different levels at the station the first one serving the line from Guindy towards Officers Training Academy (OTA) and Chennai airport and the second one for the line from St. Thomas Mount towards CMBT. Once completed the over bridge will be of a huge benefit to the train passengers for crossing GST Road at St. Thomas Mount.
