This is the third such project Alstom is working on in Turkey.

The manufacturer is also currently carrying out signalling works for the Istanbul Cekmekoy-Sancaktepe-Sultanbeyli (CSS) line and the Bandirma-Bursa-Yenisehir-Osmaneli (BBYO) line.

Through the Gulermak and Nurol joint venture, Alstom has now also been charged with enabling the Umraniye-Atasehir-Goztepe (UAG) metro line to operate as a fully automatic and driverless system.

This will be fully compatible and interoperable with the Dudullu-Bostanci metro line signalling system.

The 13-kilometre-long UAG line will connect the Marmaray, Uskudar-Umraniye-Cekmekoy-Sancaktepe and Kadikoy-Kartal-Kaynarca metro lines and have a total of 11 stations.

Volkan Karakilinc, Managing Director of Alstom Turkey, said:

“We're thrilled to carry out our second-largest signalling project in Istanbul within the last three months.

“As a leader of sustainable and innovative mobility, we’re committed to continue advancing Istanbul's rail system network with our latest technology solutions.”
