Connectivity to Oragadam to get a boost! TN to extend Phase-II metro corridor to Parandur via Sriperumbudur


Traveling to and from Oragadam will be a breeze in the coming years as the TN government plans to carry out feasibility studies to extend three corridors of metro rail Phase-2, which includes a line to Parandur via Sriperumbudur. The extension of Corridor 4, which will be approximately 50 km will connect Parandur to Poonamalllee. Chennai’s second greenfield airport is to come at Parandur. A consultant will be finalized to conduct a detailed feasibility study by the end of the year.

Chennai’s most preferred neighborhood

Over the last few years, Oragadam has grown from being one of the biggest automobile hubs into a multi-faceted industrial zone. Twenty-two Fortune 500 companies have set up units in the Sriperumbudur – Oragadam belt. This rise has led to a large influx of white collared workforce from different parts of the country and also a large number of expats, particularly from South Korea and Japan. One residential segment that meets all their needs is Hiranandani Parks, Oragadam. The 360-acre township houses luxury 2.5 & 3 BHK apartments and ready-to-register premium plots for those who wish to build their own homes. Well connected by road and rail, the township is located between Grand Southern Trunk (GST) Road and National Highway 4. It is just an hour’s drive from the Chennai International airport and half an hour’s drive from the proposed international airport that is likely to come up at Parandur.

Metro extension to provide connectivity

The extension of Metro Corridor 4 (from Poonamalle to Parandur) will not only enhance connectivity to the upcoming Chennai’s second airport at Parandur but will also give a fillip to the setting up of ancillary and support industries in the corridor. The Sriperumbudur – Oragadam industrial belt is located very close to the airport. The study was undertaken by keeping in mind the transit-oriented development concepts across key corridors like in Delhi and Ahmedabad and international models like that of Curitiba in Brazil and Portland, USA.

Hiranandani Parks, the city within a city

Created to provide a perfect work-life balance to the residents, the 360-acre integrated, and self-sustained township offers the best-in-class social and civil infrastructure. The township has its own sewage treatment plant that treats sewage water. Apart from keeping the environment clean, the treated water is used to clean the surface and water the gardens. The modern water treatment plant at Hiranandani Parks has a capacity of 2.34 MLD (Millions of liters per day), which meets the needs of all the residents in the township. The long list of facilities includes the TIPS school, Rela Hospital, Nilgiris Supermarket, a 9-Hole Golf-Course, HDFC Bank, general convenience stores, restaurants, and many more. Not to forget the fine range of amenities like cricket ground, football arena, tennis courts, volleyball area, basketball courts, squash courts, table tennis, indoor games, 7 themed gardens, musical fountain, children’s play area, walking and jogging tracks, the Agatheeshwara Temple Complex and more.
