Bangalore Metro’s Green Line enters commercial service

As part of the contract, valued at a total of €114 million (INR 710 crores), awarded by Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) in 2009, Alstom has provided the design, manufacture, supply, installing, testing and commissioning of the train control and signalling and telecommunications systems.

The engineering and R&D teams in Bangalore have equipped two corridor lines (42 km, 41 stations) including two depots, one Operation Control Centre (OCC) and one Back up Operation Control Center (BCC).

The solution includes the Urbalis 200 Automatic Train Control system which will ensure optimal safety, flexible operations and heightened passenger comfort and is already operational in sections of Bangalore Metro.

Alstom is committed to evolving India’s urban transport infrastructure requirements as the country embarks on its journey towards managing its growing cities. The successful deployment of this solution is a result of close co-operation between several Alstom units: Bangalore and Coimbatore in India, Saint-Ouen and Villeurbanne in France, and Bologna in Italy.

    When presenting at INFOCOM 2009 in Kolkata I suggested to the delegates its very own Tram Network could be adapted to bring freight to the heart of its City to avoid the road congestion. SRI showed an interested as did RDSO and IRB.
    In 2009 when in Bangalore with TAML the pending Metro opportunity was discussed, alas the suggestions made seem to have been overlooked and the Metro is merely now a solution for the passenger.
