Chennai city's iconic Marina Beach to get Metro Station soon.
In a few years, visitors can take the Chennai Metro straight to the Iconic Marina beach, where an underground station is being planned under the Gandhi statue.
Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) already started doing the soil tests near the Marina beach to know the geological conditions and according carry out the construction of the underground station.
There will be two entry and exits points for this station, one of it will be near Light House. By CMRL, the light House area sees about 55,000 vehicles passing through it on a daily basis.
The Light House Metro Station will be built at a depth of about 20 meters below the ground and has been planned in a manner to benefit tourists who specially make a trip to the Marina while visiting the city.
One of the main concerns of the CMRL officials is that there are no dedicated bus bays in the Light House area now and they plan to create it, along with the building of the station.
