Less than 24 hours after roads and streets were made off-limits to motorists and vehicles of all kinds across the greater Mylapore zone, Chennai Metro contractors have got to work, extending the little work zones they set up the past weeks.
Luz Circle and Mandaveli roundabout will see hectic work in the days to come.
On Monday, a pooja was done at the Mandaveli site before drilling work began. The area now looks like a industrial zone, much like what the Music College / Jesus Calls junction further south looks like – this being the first hub for the North-South Metro line as of now.
The area off the MTC bus terminus is being cleared, with blocks being demolished – this area will locate the Metro’s Mandaveli underground station.
