Bus terminus in Kilumbakkam from next year
– 70 percent construction complete
– Escalator as well as other facilities

Chennai. The third bus terminus in Chennai will be operational from next year at Kilumbakkam. The Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority has completed 70 per cent of the construction work. The remaining works will be completed in three months. The new bus terminus will have southbound buses, which will help decongest the CMBT at Koyambedu. The construction work of the new bus terminus at Kilambakkam is going on in full swing and the facility will be operational from next year.
After a delay of several months, the authority started construction work in 2019. Soon after the commencement of work it was affected by the COVID lockdown resulting in labor shortage.
The new bus terminus is expected to carry around 1.5 lakh passengers, and has parking space for 250 buses, 270 cars and 3,500 two-wheelers. Spread over an area of ​​44.74 acres, the facility is being set up at an estimated cost of Rs.393.74 crore. The built up area will be 6.40 lakh square feet. The terminus will have escalators as well as other facilities. It will also have hostels for bus crew and waiting rooms for passengers.

Apart from these, an MTC terminus has also been proposed under the project on a land parcel spread over 7.4 acres adjacent to the new Mufassil Bus Terminus. CMBT has only 180 active bus parking bays and separate parking areas for city buses.
