Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded a rolling stock contract worth S$119.2 million to a consortium comprising Germany-based Bombardier Transportation and its Chinese JV, Changchun Bombardier Railway Vehicles Company Limited. The scope of the contract involves the supply of 15 three-car Movia train sets. The cars will be assembled at the facility of Changchun Bombardier Railway Vehicles Company Limited in Changchun. The delivery of the cars will be incorporated into the existing contract delivery of the Downtown Line (DTL) project that is expected to be completed in 2016. Once completed, the 42 km DTL will be the world’s longest driverless mass rapid transit line. With the new order, a fleet of 264 fully automated Movia metro cars will run on the line. DTL will run from Bukit Panjang to Expo via the Central Business District. Phase I linking Chinatown and Bugis is due to open towards end-2013, with Phases 2 and 3 to be commissioned in 2015 and 2017, respectively.
