“This major signalling contract confirms the trust our customer MMRCL has in us.”

This contract follows the rolling stock and power supply contracts secured by the company earlier this year.

In India, Alstom has already deployed Urbalis technology in the Kochi and Lucknow metros.

Overall, it has been deployed across 96 urban rail lines (more than 55 are in service), covering 1,900 track miles and 1,100 stations.

In October, MMRCL awarded a contract to Johnson Lifts Pvt Ltd India & M/s SJEC Corporation China Consortium to supply escalators to 14 Line 3 stations.

The overall project, which secured a loan of Rs132.35bn ($1.8bn) from Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), is estimated to cost Rs231.36bn ($3.1bn).
