Airport & CMBT Elevation view lost!


Chennai is building Metro on the underground section at 3 times the cost of the overhead section. Having gone to this extent, one  wonders if they could have extended the budget by a few crores to get both the CMBT and the Airport locations underground, to save the elevation.

Now from next year, the views to both CMBT and the airport would be blocked by the Metro line thereby masking the grandeur of both these structures. Though compromising form to function is important, in this case it could have been worked around.
