I recently came across this excellent aerial video on Youtube that shows both lines of Chennai’s new metro line under construction as seen from a plane approaching to land at the airport.
The video, which appears to have been shot in June, starts at Little Mount station and shows the metro section south of it featuring Guindy, Alandur and the Officers Training Academy (OTA) – all along the Blue line. As you will see, construction is in advanced stage and trials on this section from Little Mount to OTA are expected to begin in October this year (See: Chennai Metro to start testing Little Mount – OTA line in October) with plans to become operational early next year. A sneak peek of the Green line can be seen when the Kathipara junction & Alandur station are featured.
Here’s the video – enjoy!
