Madurai Metro – Information & Updates

Madurai Metro project is a mass rapid transit system (MRTS) proposed to be built in Madurai, Tamil Nadu by Chennai Metro Rail Ltd. (CMRL).

The project’s Detailed Feasibility Report (DFR) was prepared and submitted by Balaji Railroad Systems (BARSYL) to CMRL in November 2022. This report was forwarded to the Tamil Nadu state government in January 2023 for consideration.

The feasibility report suggested building a 31 km metro line between Thirumangalam – Othakadai with 20 stations and a train maintenance depot on a 45 acre site at Thirumangalam.

In February 2023, CMRL invited bids to prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) which is expected to be completed by December 2023.
