Seimens will provide signalling technology for first two metro lines in Nagpur. They will also deploy and install Siemens communications-based train control (CBTC) solution Trainguard MT for 38.2 kilometers of double track at 36 stations and two depots, as well as onboard equipment for 23 three-cars trains.
Through digitised track database, the CBTC solution can enable headways of 90 seconds or less with precise train detection. This also increases the frequency of trains for passengers.
“Nagpur Metro will play a pivotal role in enhancing quality of life and economic growth of the city and the region…Siemens’ future ready signaling solution will provide the basis for an attractive, safe and efficient mass transit system which will satisfy the needs of both passengers and rail operators,” said Tilak Raj Seth, Executive Vice President, Siemens Ltd and CEO, Mobility Division in Lead Country in conversation with the media.
Nagpur metro’s east-west corridor will have 19 stations and the north-south corridor 17 stations, and will link the airport with the automotive square, at the north of the city.
