Tiruchirappalli Monorail is the proposed monorail system for the city of Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu, part of a major expansion of public transport in the city.


As the monorail market is estimated to be 72000 crore (US$11 billion) in India,[1] the then Governor of Tamil Nadu, S. S. Barnala announced in Legislative assembly that the Government of Tamil Nadu has decided to do a feasibility study for introducing monorail system in Tiruchi along with Coimbatore and Madurai,[2] which was supposedly deemed as cost effective for Tier-II cities.[3]


The government has earmarked a sum of about 60000 crore (US$9.1 billion) for metro and monorail projects in Tamil Nadu.[4]

The proposal suggested circular operation in the following routes:

The proposal also suggested a new rail link between Chord line and Tiruchi-Karur railway lines, Via. Amma Mandapam and also a possible extension to Kailasapuram (BHEL) and Bikshandarkovil.[5]
