Chennai Central – Avadi EMU services adjustments

Due to ongoing railway work between Villivakkam and Ambur on the Chennai Central – Arakkonam route, significant changes have been made to the electric train services. The Chennai Central – Avadi electric train, which typically departs at 12:15 AM, will be rerouted via the express route between Villivakkam and Avadi on the following dates: June 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23. As a result of this detour, the train will not stop at the Korattur, Pattaravakkam, Thirumullaivoyal, and Annanur stations on these dates. Passengers planning to board or alight at these stations are advised to make alternative arrangements.
