The metro cars in question will run on the North-South and East-West Lines. The contract includes an option to extend by an additional 20 years. As part of the contract Bombardier will provide technical support and spare parts.

Jayaram Naidu, President of Southeast Asia Region, Bombardier Transportation, said:

“We are proud to continue playing such a major role, contributing to Singapore’s public transport network and supporting our customer’s ambitious expansion plan to grow its rail network to 360 km by the 2030s. This order demonstrates the confidence LTA and SMRT have in our industry-leading services capabilities.

“We will maintain their assets to the highest levels of reliability and availability throughout their lifecycle and ensure that the trains move people safely and on-time to their destinations.”

Bombardier has won three contracts associated with the North-South and East-West Lines to date. The first one was for 396 metro cars, a second was for 240 additional cars. Bombardier won its first large services contract in southeast Asia in March 2018 – for the Bukit Panjang Light Rail Transit line from SMRT (also in Singapore).

The six-car MOVIA metro cars for the North-South and East-West Line, which Bombardier is designing, engineering, manufacturing, assembling, testing and commissioning, are due to be delivered from 2021 onwards.
