Chennai Metro: trees on marina lawns transplanted to QMC campus

Chennai Metro has transplanted all the major trees that were on the lawns of the Marina around Gandhi statue and planted them in the Queen Mary’s College campus.

The beachfront area is being developed as a station for the two rail lines in Phase 2 of Chennai Metro project. The area south of the statue was barricaded and the trees carefully lifted out and transplanted.

Each tree was labelled by the CMRL contractor and these trees can be seen alongside the north boundary of the college campus.
