Alstom has been awarded contracts to equip Mumbai Metro lines 2A, 2B and 7, and Pune Metro lines 1 and 2, with Urbalis 400, Alstom’s latest generation of Communications Based Train Control technology. The combined value of the two contracts comes to over €90 million.

The scope of work includes design, manufacture, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of Urbalis 400. The company will also be supplying on-board equipment for 63 trains of the Mumbai Metro corridors and 31 trains of Pune Metro. The telecommunications scope includes public address, passenger information display, fibre optic transmission and access control systems, and CCTV.
