Chennai Metro to Start Trial Runs Between Little Mount & OTA this Week

After trial runs between Little Mount and the Officers Training Academy (OTA) got delayed last month due to some “permissions”, they are all set to start this week! According to a report in the Hindu, they will start either on Friday (Oct 16th) or on Saturday (Oct 17th).

As per one official:

The track work was completed long ago and the electrification was also done sometime ago. Now that the rest of the works are also over, we can start the trial runs.

In November, the trial runs on this line are expected to be further extended south to the Airport, but looking at the line’s progress (civil, track laying), it will only start in December or January.
