The Noida Metro Rail Corporation on Sunday released a preliminary design of its 19 new train-sets that are being procured from CRRC Corporation to run on its 30 km Aqua Line. These trains are part of a 76 coach (19 train-sets x 4 coaches) order for which the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, on behalf of Noida Metro Rail Corporation, signed a MoU with CRRC in March 2016 after CRRC emerged as the lowest technically qualified bidder in January.
A model coach is expected to arrive in the city in February 2017 while the actual train-sets are expected to start arriving in July, just a couple months before the line is expected to go live by the end of 2017.
As per the NMRC, each train will have a seating capacity of 186 and can carry approximately 1,000 passengers. No further details on its interior features have been released, but they’re expected to be fairly standard to what you’d find in modern coaches.
What do you think of its design?
