      Arrival Of Downtown Line Train Mock-Up:

      http://app.lta.gov.sg/corp_press_content.asp?start=uzth1f88ltw23y65rc72y0t2wqt50rid8w2893s39pxzdmvbbn

      Downtown Line train will be more environmentally-friendly (22/10/2009)

      SINGAPORE: The new Downtown Line train will be environmentally friendly.

      The Land Transport Authority said the use of new technology in the train's power generation and drive systems will help reduce its overall energy consumption.

      It added that it would help translate to an energy saving of some 8,000 kilowatt hours per year.

      The train will also have some new features. Some of the ergonomic seats are colour-coded red for commuters with special needs.

      The seats at the side have been converted to perch seats, allowing a wider space for movement around the doorway.

      And like the current batch of trains on the main lines, there will be a route map display. Its mock-up can be viewed at the Land Transport Authority's Hampshire Road office.

      Stage one of the Downtown Line is scheduled for completion in 2013.

      The Downtown Line is the longest fully underground rail project to date, at 40 kilometres with 33 stations.

      It will run through high-traffic and built-up corridors, allowing direct travel from the northwestern and eastern areas of Singapore to the Central Business District.

      The trains are designed in Germany and manufactured in China. - CNA/vm

    • Oh no... Perch seats...

      (For those of you who aren't familiar with the term, it means those bars on the bar trains.)

    • 滨海市区线新型列车 接载量更大 紧抓节能环保技术 (2009/10/22)

      新传媒新闻报道,地铁滨海市区线的列车设计模型首次亮相。预料2013年投入使用的新列车,构造和设计不但省电,接载量也更大,有助缓解繁忙时段乘客拥挤的问题。

      色彩鲜艳的保留座位,时时提醒乘客要让位给有需要的人;根据人体弧形设计的椅子,不但更加舒服,椅子边缘凸起的部分,也能更好地分隔座位。

      一般上,靠近出入口的这个地方都会设有两张座椅,可是在新型的列车当中,可能会换成象这样的靠背椅子,这样一来,乘客的接载量就会增加20%,也意味着,在繁忙时段能够挤上列车的乘客将会更多。

      新型列车在设计上也紧抓节能环保技术。

      陆路交通管理局轨道车辆部副署长刘振华表示:“新型的列车比现有的列车轻1.4吨,同时在列车行驶过程中,有更多能源可以循环利用,因此在列车30年的生命周期内,总共在能源消耗方面,节省6万元。”

      滨海市区线将拥有73辆无人驾驶三节型列车,总值5亿7100万元。全线通车后,每天的载客量高达50万人次。

      设计人性化, 时髦与节能, 滨海市区线首阶段列车2013年启用 (2009/10/23)

      ● 李静仪 报道

      兴建中的滨海市区线的新列车样版出炉,里头好些设计有别于现有列车,旨在为乘客提供全新的乘车体验。

      除了座椅的设计更照顾到人体弧度、让乘客坐得更安稳舒适外,外观时髦的模型列车也以靠椅(perch seat)取代一些普通座椅,以腾出更大的站立空间。

      此外,新列车采用可节省能源的发电技术,每个列车比环线列车轻1.4公吨,每年可节省约8000千瓦小时的电力,相等于每年节省6万元。

      这列模型列车是在本月初抵运新加坡,陆路交通管理局正评估列车的设计及质地,预料最后设计会在年底敲定。列车明年将开始投入生产,预计第一批会在2012年底交货。

      订购73列列车

      陆交局总共为滨海市区线订购了73列列车,它们是由总部设在柏林的加拿大公司庞巴迪(Bombardier)制造,合同总值约为5亿7100万元。

      第一阶段的市区线定2013年启用,全线预计会在2016年通车,它是我国第三个全自动化的无人驾驶地铁系统,同环线列车一样,每列列车设有三个车厢。

      新列车是在德国设计,在中国长春制造,这也是我国列车首次生产于中国。

      庞巴迪亚洲商务部(乘客处)总裁米科尔森说:“陆交局设定很高的标准,由于这是它首次接收制造于中国的列车,这个样版设计将有助于当局进行所需的评估。”

      新列车目前正在位于翰莎路(Hampshire Road)的陆交局总部展出,属交通展览馆其中一个展品,当局欢迎展馆访客对列车设计提出意见。

    • 位于巴西立 首个地铁站启用月台玻璃屏门 (2009/11/02)

      ● 李静仪 报道

      巴西立地铁站月台的半身高玻璃屏门已提前建好和启用,进一步保障地铁乘客的安全,避免有人闯入或坠落轨道的事故发生。巴西立是第一个启用玻璃屏门的地铁站。另两个参与测试的高架地铁站义顺和裕廊东的玻璃屏门安装工程,也可如期在下月前完工。

      副总理兼国防部长张志贤昨天为巴西立站的月台玻璃屏门主持启用仪式。该站的玻璃屏门原定年底装好,由于工程一切进展顺利,安装工作只用了大概两个半月就完成。

      也是白沙—榜鹅集选区国会议员的张志贤受访时说:“新设施可协助加强地铁和月台的乘客安全,但乘客在使用公共交通工具时也需为自己的安全负责,例如在上下地铁时要小心,也要多加注意孩子的安全,特别是在月台等车的时候。”

      南北和东西线上其余33个高架地铁站将从明年起陆续安装,位于西部的地铁站会先动工,预计所有地铁站的工程会在2012年之前竣工。

      至于这些站的工程能否同巴西立站一样提前完工,陆路交通管理局地铁署(现有地铁线与汤申线)总署长蔡崇庆说:“我们会尽力而为,但工程还是有难度,工作人员只能在凌晨地铁结束服务后开工,每晚只能工作两个半小时,且须遵循严格安全要求。”

      他说:“其实我们定下的安装时间表已相当紧凑,我们还会继续检讨工作程序,看看是否能使测试和安装过程更有效率,这需要承包商和SMRT地铁人员的配合。”

      蔡崇庆受询时也透露,高架地铁站在装置玻璃屏门后,月台与轨道之间的黄线会继续保留,无需刻意去除,以免花费不必要的开销。

      每个玻璃屏门高1.5公尺,它的信号系统与列车门系统衔接,只有在列车进站停车、车厢门敞开时,屏门才会自动开启,让乘客进出。整个安装工程耗资1亿2600万元。

      一般地铁站月台总共需装置48个屏门,转换站则需96个,所有36个高架地铁站共需安装1920个屏门。

      之前有乘客担心安装玻璃屏门后,月台的空气会不流通的问题,SMRT企业表示会继续留意,若有必要会采取行动。

       

      首阶段电眼安装工程将近完成

      除月台玻璃屏门,旨在提升地铁站安全的闭路电视(CCTV)安装工程也进展顺利,原定明年1月完工的首阶段工程13个地铁站,至今已差不多都安装了电眼。

      陆交局在去年8月底颁发总值2900万元的合同给三家公司,在所有地铁站装置更多电眼,并提升整个地铁线现有的闭路电视系统。

      有关工程分为地铁站和列车两个部分,地铁站的闭路电视安装工作分四期进行,首批提前完工的地铁站包括欧南园、武吉士和莱佛士坊转换站。

      预料南北和东西线上的其他38个地铁站的电眼会在明后两年装好。

      Erm, make sense as I have been wondering what will happen to these STARIS after each extension? So how many extension do they intend to have? Is there any extension possible after EW33 / TE2 (Tuas Extension 2) and Marina South Extension? [Background info: Govt announced to built additional 6 stations after Joo Koon despite no details made public as of yet. 4 of them will be built first and the remaining 2 was widely speculated to be extension of EW30, known as next station after Joo Koon due to its designed could be a combination of usual stations at the extreme side and a Dover style in the middle side of the station -- 4 tracks total and it is DIFFERENT from Jurong East after it has modified and City Hall / Raffles Place. There is none in the history of Singapore MRT has such design, we shall see.]
