Infrastructure development has been a key driving force to Chennai’s growth and has been critical in attracting corporate and individuals alike. Chennai’s infrastructure is under constant strain. Traffic bottlenecks, restricted civic amenities and high pollution are all characteristics of this strain on infrastructure. However, over the past several years, a number of initiatives aimed at improving connectivity have been undertaken to ease some of this burden. The major initiative is the Metro Rail Network, consisting of three corridors. The metro stations are the gateway to smaller areas/ neighborhoods within the city and NMT is important to serve and support the last mile connectivity.
