They still have to announce the rolling stock manufacturer.


@Kronic - they just put that map up on their website. 24hrs ago, they only had the thumbnail of it which you see on their main page.

Interesting that the proposed Line 3 is parallel to the Suburban Railway.

Delhi metro had placed an order for 340 MOVIA coaches from Bombardier last year. This year they've placed an order for an additional 84 coaches taking the count to 424 coaches. All of these coaches will be manufactured in India and deliveries will start in the last quarter of 2008.

Here's a rendering of it from Bombardier's website found by fellow Indian member Harsh1802

great to see the lotus temple will be "on track". but why didn't they take more time and build a underground system rather than elevated? The above areas are pretty dense so elevated trains will affect a alot on the local people's lives in the long run (noise, pollution etc).

Good progress anyway.
