INDIA: The first of 424 Bombardier metro cars for Delhi was loaded onto an Antonov Airlines AN-124-100M high capacity freight aircraft on February 25, for delivery to India the following day.

The 45 tonne, 22·5 m long and 3·2 m wide metro car was moved by road from Bombardier's Görlitz plant in eastern Germany to Parchim airport in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Delhi Metro Rail Corp placed a €427m order for 340 Movia cars in July 2007. An €87m option for a further 84 was exercised in March 2008, bringing the order to 37 four-car and 46 six-car trainsets worth a total of €514m. The trains are required for the 60 km Phase 2 of the metro network. They will be air-conditioned, have electronic information systems, and are designed to be 90% recyclable under Bombardier's ECO4 environmental policy.

The first 36 cars are being manufactured at Görlitz. The rest will be produced at a newly-built €33m factory at Savli in the Vadodara district of Gujarat, which Bombardier inaugurated last November to serve projects in the Indian and southeast Asian markets. Bombardier has been training 60 staff from India at Görlitz, and employees from the German plant are in India to support the establishment of the Savli factory.Antonov Airlines AN-124-100M heavy-lift aircraft

Bombardier's Västerås plant in Sweden is handling design and project management, and developed the Mitrac propulsion system for the 25 kV cars in conjunction with the company's sites in Mannheim and Bucuresti. The stainless steel bodies for the first cars are being made at Hennigsdorf, with the 1 676 mm gauge bogies produced at Derby and Siegen.

'This project is a prime example of collaboration between Bombardier and its customer across cultures, countries, continents and sites', said Stephan Krenz, President of the Germany & Scandinavia business unit of Bombardier Transportation's Passenger Division. 'Our international team developed and supplied a brand new vehicle in just 1½ years while at the same time establishing a new production plant in India.'

The line from Rithala to Dilshad Garden is line 1 and red coloured.
The line from Jahangirpuri to Central Secretariat is line 2 and yellow coloured.
The line from Indraprastha to Dwarka Sector 9 is line 3 and blue coloured.

So, what will be the number and colour of the line from Indralok to Mundka?
What will be the number and colour of the line from Central Secretariat to Badarpur?
What will be the number and colour of the line from Yamuna Bank to Vaishali?

Delhi Metro's First Standard Gauge Train Arrives in India

Quote:
India's first standard gauge Metro train arrived in India on 16th March 2009, after a three - week long voyage by sea from South Korea.

The four - coach train set sail on 25th February 2009 from Changwon in South Korea, where it was manufactured, and arrived at the Mundra Port in Gujarat. The train will now be transported by road on four trailers to Delhi where it is expected to reach by 30th March, 2009. The train will be brought to the Mundka depot of Delhi Metro for testing and will be used on the Inderlok - Mundka line.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) so far possessed only broad gauge trains but three lines of Phase - II, i.e., Inderlok - Mundka, Central Secretariat - Badarpur and the Airport Express Line are being built on standard gauge as per international norms. The new standard gauge trains are being procured by DMRC for the first two lines while the concessionaire M/s Reliance - CAF, will provide trains for the Airport Express Line.

The front of the standard gauge train will have a single glass pane as can be seen in cars instead of two separate panes as in the existing trains. Other features of the trains include Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras inside and outside the coaches, power supply connections inside coaches to charge mobiles and laptops, better humidity control and microprocessor controlled disc brakes.

DMRC has also placed orders for 83 new broad gauge trains of which 46 will have six coaches each. At present, the organization has 70 broad gauge trains. Thus, Delhi Metro will have more than 200 trains when Phase - II becomes fully operational.

HI guys,

Great to see that Delhi Metro is advancing so fast! I visited Delhi in October 2007 and so many thing have changed.

Do they still have metal detectors at every station with private police doing the frisking? (it was an unusual experience for a subway but I guess it is necessary).

Cheers

Hi Guys !

Great to see that the Delhi metro is advancing so well! I was in Delhi in October 2007 and so many things seem to have been done in the meantime!

Do they still have metal detectors at the entry of each station with private police doing the frisking? (It was an unusual experience for a subway drive but I guess it is necessary)

Cheers

Yes, frisking of commuters is mandatory. With terror threat looming all the time, we can't take any chance.

thanks!

I understand the threat (specially after what happened in Mumbai!).

Though, this must slow down the flow of passengers considerably (unless there's plenty of "friskers")
