Alstom has been awarded the contract to manufacture, supply, and commission fully-automated communications based train control (CBTC) signalling system for the upcoming Bengaluru Metro Phase 2, Reach 6, 2A and 2B. The contract worth 96.2 million euros with Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL), includes annual maintenance for five years.

This project aims to cater to the three major corridors of the Bengaluru metropolitan region, by linking the critical junction at Silk Board on the Outer Ring Road (2A) to the Kempegowda International Airport (2B) via KR Puram. Reach-6 will connect Bannerghatta Road to Nagavara with interchanges at MG Road (Purple Line which connects to Whitefield); and yellow line at Jayadeva Hospital & the Blue Line at Nagavara.

The solutions to be delivered to Bengaluru Metro include CBTC technology, enabling driverless operation offering an exceptional level of service across the combined line length of 80.39 km. The project is expected to alleviate traffic congestion in the city by minimising travel time by at least 50 percent, reducing CO2 emissions.

To enhance passenger safety, full height platform screen doors (PSDs) will be installed at all underground stations on Reach-6 corridor and the Airport line terminal, and half-height platform screen gates (PSGs) will be installed at one at-grade station (2B corridor). This would be the first implementation of platform screen doors on Bengaluru Metro corridors.

Alstom’s CBTC Urbalis, a solution developed at Bangalore site will also offer the highest Grade of Automation (GoA4), known as the ‘driverless technology’ across 50 stations and three depots. The integrated operation control centre (OCC) is being built at Baiyappanahalli, and the backup control centre (BCC) located at Peenya will serve as a command centre to control and monitor all train operations.
