The Hindu reported that Chennai Metro is likely to rope in a new contractor for completing the construction of two stations along the phase I extension project that covers north Chennai. The phase I extension project that runs from Washermanpet to Wimco Nagar for about 9 km is estimated to cost INR 3,770 crore and passes through stations including Washermanpet, Korukkupet, Sir Theagaraya College, Tondiarpet, Thangal, Gowri Ashram, Tiruvottiyur and Wimco Nagar.

According to officials of Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL), the construction of Korukkupet and Sir Theagaraya College stations has been delayed. Two years ago, Chennai Metro had given a contract worth INR 370 crore for building these two stations to IL&FS and a Ukrainian company, PJSC Kyivmetrobud. But since the company has been facing a cash crunch, the construction of the stations had slowed down
