SINGAPORE Land Transport Authority (LTA) has placed a $S 749m ($US 597m) order with a consortium of Kawasaki Heavy Industries and CSR Qingdao Sifang for 91 four-car metro trains, which will be used on the new Thomson and Eastern Region lines.
The 750V dc driverless trains will be the first in Singapore with five doors on each side of each vehicle. LTA says the fleet will also be equipped with improved current regeneration technology.
Kawasaki will design the trains, while CSR Qingdao Sifang will be responsible for producing the aluminium alloy bodyshells and final assembly of the vehicles. The trains will be delivered to Singapore between 2018 and 2021. Full story
