Note that Singapore is gearing up to add more lines to the downtown city in near future. In fact, most part of the Circle line have been completed and the appropriate names of the completed station have been sought from the public to see whether the public is comfortable with the new names of the stations. It shld be completed by 2007.

And all the trains are A/C and all stations for the circle line will be underground.

Kuala Lumpur and Vancouver run the exact same model of driverless Bombardier trains. There is a distinct seat at the front of the train right by the window to admire the view.

i dont think most part of the circle line is complete. i read somewhere is this forum an article saying that stage 2 is around 60% complete. stage 4 and 5 started not long ago(think end of last yr/beginning this yr). stage 2 should be finish in 2007, but i dont think it will open until 2008, when stage 3 is finish. stage 1 delay until 2010 because of Nicoll Highway, so stage 2 and 3 likely to open together b4 stage 1, in 2008.

The "old" metros in Lisbon (ML-7 series - http://www.metrolisboa.pt/ml7.htm) have gone out of circulation 5 years ago. ALL current metros have air-conditioning.

Same for Copenhagen (I don't know if they have the same train sets though).

About Lisbon.... I checked their website and discussed it in the portuguese forum, and seems that in fact, none of the trains have air conditioning.... only forced air fans (probably that's not the right words, but you get it I guess)....

Lisbon: Well, I read it too before entering my post and I guess that's a sort of air conditioning, don't you think? Because the ventilation functions with both hot and cold air...

^Tá no thread de metros de Lisboa e sul do tejo.

Well, forced ventilation is not air conditioning...
Take for example cars... cars that don't have air conditioned have forced ventilation too.... And may blow hot air.... but not cold air.
The same happens with lisbon metro... they can blow air from the outside, but they don't refresh the air.... it just renovates the air, with air from the outside, but it's not colder than the outside air. It doesn't refrigerate the air like air conditioning does.

Yes, air conditioning means an active cooling system which cools the air down like a refrigerator.

No they don't. The new cars simply have a "forced-air" system, like in Montreal. This is nothing more than a vent on the roof that leads into an overhead fan. So when the train moves, the fan spins and you get outside air blown at you. So whatever the temperature is outside the car, that's the temperature of the air you get inside the car. That's not A/C, but depending on the speed of the train, it can be a nice breeze. The system feels stronger in Montreal, though.

Why is there no Airconditioning in Metro Stations and on trains? (ATHENA)

"WE HAVE created a ventilation system which ensures that the temperature within the stations is lower than it is outside in summer and higher in winter," says Kikiras. "In the summer we leave the system on throughout the night. This works because the metro is completely underground - unlike the HSAP line, of which of only three kilometres of a total 26km are underground - therefore it stays cool."

Kikiras adds that the company has been carrying out research into the usefulness of having air conditioning on station platforms though not in trains. "Air conditioning systems in trains can lead to faults due to the amount of electricity required," he explains. After the particularly hot summer Athens experienced this year, Attiko Metro views the idea of air conditioning on platforms as particularly viable.

Air conditioned metro trains overheat the stations!
We know very well this problem here in Barcelona...

In some metro stations is hotter inside than outside on the street!
Street temperature now is 35-37º Centigrade.

The Athens metro is the best place to be in summer! its really nice and cool especially compared to the 50 degree Celcius heat we experience in Athena-The concrete Jungle.
