Newly released official PDF with all current expansion and plans for the Metro/CPTM network for this decade:

http://www.fne.org.br/fne/index.php/...e%20SP%201.pdf

Here is an summary of contents:

Monorail Line 2 - to Oratorio first quarter 2013 - works for remaining part (16 stations) will start on the third quarter of 2011. Then to São Mateus third quarter of 2014, but Cidade Tiradentes only by late 2016. If demand is estimated at 550,000 2014, then it will be even bigger in 2016 with Cid. Tiradentes.

Line 4 - 2nd. phase stations in June 2014. Vila Sonia Station (phase II and a half) by September 2014.

Line 5 - Adolfo Pinheiro by March 2013. Chácara Klabin by October 2015 (I think 2016/ 2017 is more realistic).

Line 6 - Brasilândia - São Joaquim operational in the third quarter of 2016 I think 2018 is more likely. The major news in this document are major extensions on both sides of the line. It will be 34 km long when (if) completed.

Line 15 - (eastward continuation of line 2) operational in February 2017. I think 2019 would be more realistic. It's a shame because this line is the most important extension after line 5, because it will relieve line and 3 will serve the east side very well. An unanswered question is whether this line will connect with line 11 at Penha, the station that currently serves only line 3. I always thought a mistake changing the original intention of bringing the line to Tatuapé, this option would be shorter, faster to make, cheaper and would lead to a much better connected station (Tatuapé serves lines 3, 11 and 12).

Line 17 Monorail - Jabaquara-Morumbi by mid 2014 (World Cup). This will be interesting to follow because it will be pride or shame by mid-2014 (it will serve São Paulo's domestic airport Congonhas).

Line 18 - by June 2016. Who knows what will come out of it.

I think that this will be a decade of great expansion of the subway system in the Greater São Paulo.

Scomi consortium picked for RM2.6b Brazil monorail
June 03, 2011

KUALA LUMPUR, June 3 — A consortium that includes Malaysia’s Scomi Engineering Berhad has won a RM2.6 billion contract to build an 18km monorail line in Sao Paulo, Brazil, parent company Scomi Group Berhad said today.

It said the Consortium Monotrilho Integracao contract covers the design works, manufacture, supply and implementation of the monorail system for Line 17 – Gold Metro of São Paulo which will have 18 stations commencing from Jabaquara to São Paulo – Morumbi.

The contract involves the supply of 24-car train sets consisting of three cars in each set and is expected to carry some 252,000 passengers per day. The award is valued at 1.4 billion reals, or approximately RM2.6 billion, and is expected to be completed in 42 months, Scomi said.

The consortium consists of Scomi, Andrade Gutierrez S.A. (“AG Group”), CR Almeida S.A. Engenharia de Obras and Montagens e Projetos Especiais SA.

Scomi’s scope of works will involve the supply of rolling, the vehicle management system (VMS), design for switches, system integration, system assurance and testing and commissioning, it added.

“This is a reflection of the confidence in the group’s capabilities as well as its track record in managing sizeable and multi-faceted urban transportation endeavours on an international scale,” said Shah Hakim Zain, group chief executive officer of Scomi Group, in a statement.

He noted the Brazilian market holds enormous potential for the group which has been spreading its wings outside the Asean region in recent years.

“We are committed to leverage on our expertise as a turnkey specialist of rail systems and to ensure that we take full advantage of the opportunities in urban transportation projects in Brazil and other parts of the world,” Shah Hakim said.

Scomi and its consortium partner, Larsen & Toubro Ltd India, were awarded a contract in November 2008 for a 19.5km line expected to be completed by end of this year.

Scomi has formed other alliances to participate in bids and proposals for a number of projects, locally and overseas in countries such as India, Brazil, Bahrain, Syria, and Egypt.


=======================================================
The above article refers Line 17, which is the second monorail line to be built in Sao Paulo. Line 2 is already under construction and will be the first monorail line to open in Sao Paulo. Line 17 will feature trains from Scomi. Line 2 will feature trains from Bombardier. A third monorail line in Sao Paulo is in the planning stage.

As noted in the article, the Scomi trains will have three cars each. I expect the trains will be similar to the 4-car trains Scomi is supplying to Mumbai, which are an updated version of the Kuala Lumpur trains. Anyone interested in the design of these trains should visit the excellent pictorial of the Kuala Lumpur line at the Monorail Society's website: http://www.monorails.org/tMspages/KLspecial01.html

Thanks for the update, I had seen it on the Brazilian press. Congrats to Scomi. Here is the map:



Originally the Airport branch was supposed to continue to São Judas line 1 station, but that was suppressed. The first section to be built is between Jabaquara and Line 9 Morumbi station, plus the Airport Branch (which is more like a separate line, requiring transfer) at Brooklin Paulista station.

Se second section is from line 9 Morumbi to São Paulo Morumbi station on line 4, which is more complicated and may delay since it requires expropriations of homes in the wealthy Morumbi district.
