Dubai Metro Takes Delivery Of First Of 50 New Trains
The first of the new Dubai Metro trains had arrived in the emirate, with a total of 50 to be delivered by the end of October 2019.
''The manufacturer, Alstom, will continue supplying the remaining trains in batches,'' he said.
"RTA will carry the test-run of the first train destined for Route 2020 on the Red Line of the Dubai Metro. It will start with the static tests of all operating systems of the train. In the following stage, RTA will embark on dynamic tests, which involve testing the performance of systems while in motion, such as motors, brakes and control systems," added Al Tayer.
Several improvements have been introduced to the interior design of the new metro carriages to make more room for riders and increase the intake of carriages.
''The new carriages are also customised to serve people of determination,'' said Al Tayer.
