[Pics] Inside Chennai Metro’s Thirumangalam Station

Work on Chennai Metro’s Thirumangalam station is rapidly progressing towards completion! This station is a part of contract UAA05 which includes 3.1 kms twin tunnels from here to Shenoy Nagar which is being executed by a joint-venture of Afcons Infrastructure and Russia’s Transtonnelstroy who won the contract in Feb 2011.

As you can see below, the station is being built just north of the operational Koyambedu station and as such is the first underground station on this metro line from Central station to St. Thomas Mount.

As a reminder TBM 1 made a breakthrough at this station after tunneling 555 meters from Anna Nagar Tower station in July 2014 – see image. The 2nd TBM made a breakthrough here a month later in August 2014 – see image. After completing the breakthroughs, the TBMs then bored twin tunnels towards the Thirumangalam Ramp.
