The units will operate on three DMRC lines, including two extensions of the existing lines 7 and 8 and the new Gold Line 10.

The new Gold Line will connect Aerocity to Tughlakabad across 64.67 kilometres. Meanwhile, the Line 8 extension will extend the Magenta Line from Janakpuri West to RK Ashram, and the Line 7 extension will connect the Pink Line between Maujpur and Mukundpur.

This contract is valued at 312 million EUR and includes the maintenance of 13 trainsets for the new line for a period of 15 years.

Dr. Vikas Kumar, Managing Director, DMRC said:

“The Delhi metro stands as the lifeline of our city, and the addition of new routes will greatly enhance connectivity in the national capital. We are glad to know that Alstom is commencing the production of Metro trains for the Delhi Metro’s fourth phase of expansion. We are sure that the new age trains will ensure a smooth and comfortable ride for the passengers.”

The Metropolis trains will leverage GOA 4 driverless features and will travel at operational speeds of up to 85 kilometres per hour.

Under the ‘Make in India’ initiative, the vehicles have been completely designed in India, taking inspiration from the tricolours of the nation’s flag.

Olivier Loison, Managing Director, Alstom India said:

“We have a longstanding association with the Delhi Metro, and it is a matter of pride for us to join India’s largest metro network in its continued growth and expansion. Our Metropolis metros have a noteworthy track record, low lifecycle cost, and keen focus on passenger experience, and we are honoured to be building these modern trains for the commuters in Delhi NCR, further promoting the transition towards sustainable mass mobility solutions.”
