MUMBAI | Monorail

Monorail Website




Quote:
The Mumbai Monorail is a monorail system under construction in the city of Mumbai, India as part of a major expansion of public transport in Mumbai. The project is being implemented by Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), with a consortium of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) and a Malaysian infrastructure firm Scomi Engineering. It will be the first monorail in India, since the Kundala Valley Railway and Patiala State Monorail Trainways (PSMT) were closed in the 1920s. Construction began in January 2009. The first line is scheduled to be completed in 2013.


Monorail Plan - from wikipedia:




Route Map:



It is being built by a consortium consisting of scomi and l&t. louis berger group is the project manager.

Has anyone identified the trains being tested at the moment. I believe the blue one is train 4, pink ?, green ??
Which is the primary test train, is train 4 the one that had the shaft between the gearbox and motor fail (not have an access door fall off as reported by SCOMI).
How many are running per day.
Have they got spare parts or are they using 1, 2 and 3 as mobile spare parts stores.

That is average speed. Urban systems, be them subways or monorails or else, have rather low average speeds because they stop too often on stations.

Well, that's a very odd way of measuring it regardless. Most trains measure max speed. I'm sure it goes much faster in between stations. A station every km seems like overkill.

Still very impressive looking!
