Forgot to ask about this yesterday.

How different is this Inter-city bus terminus from CMBT?

My understanding as per the last line in the article is that buses to Nothern cities and AP? Pls correct me if I am wrong

It would be along the lines of CMBT (32 acres), but bigger and better? (50 acres should be big). My interpretation is that this terminal would serve the buses south bound from Chennai. CMBT will continue to operate for the west bound buses. The new terminal in Madhavaram (proposed, not confirmed yet) will serve for the north bound buses.

The second location mentioned by me (Lake?) is in Urapakkam behind Desh apartments,

But most probably the Terminus might be tucked inside VK road, where State government holds a lot of land under various departments.

The Land next to the Gold Souk Mall is not entirely VGP property. Only a small part of it owned by VGP.

The place has been leased by the government to VGP for some years and the lease period is coming to an end.


The area is humongous, recently it was used for some Christian meeting and there were more than 4 lakh people who had gathered there.


So there is a very high chance that the inter-city bus terminal may come up in that area.

I used to see the old VGP pillars all around for more than 10 years and thought it is owned by VGP. If it’s a government property, high possibility of Terminus coming there.

With Gold Souk Mall & terminus (if in reality) having connectivity to OMR one side and ORR on the other end, place seems to rock in near future.

Good for my friend who owns a house near to railway track, just opposite to the Current VGP property who felt they did a mistake building a house in the locality where they have to come out for every need. This is 12 years back. They had a big issue for commute and security. Good for him and his family

Inter-City bus terminal to come on right side of vandalur (going from tambaram towards Urappakam) near by ORR. Not in V-K Road. Land has been spotted as per news in dinamalar Today.

I hope plans are done based on ORR progress.

Any idea on the location? Would be great if you could mark it in wikimapia.

From a post in Skyscrapercity

* Vandalur mofusil bus terminus plan is on fast track!

* Size 65 acres (double the size of CMBT)

* 1KM from GST-ORR Junction and 250m from Vandalur-Walajabad road.

* Bus terminus, Depot, Parking zone will come under one roof

* Draft plan has been prepared

* CMDA sources say plan for LA has been sent to SG for approval

* Presently south (GST) bound buses spend 2hrs to cross the metropolitan area from Koyamedu, this Vandalur MBT will decongest Koyamedu

* Initially it was planned at Velacherry, but the land marked for MBT will be used for Monorail
