The scope of the contract includes the design, manufacturing, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) signalling system and the PSD system, said LTA.

Siemens Mobility will provide its Trainguard CBTC signalling system with Grade of Automation (GoA) 4, capable of fully-automated train operations without the need for any onboard train attendants.

Used by most train lines on Singapore’s train network, the CBTC signalling system can allow for shorter headways, enabling trains to run at a much higher frequency during peak hours.

Siemens Mobility in the Singapore Train Network

Across the Singapore train network, Siemens Mobility has completed the signalling and PSD systems for the Downtown Line (DTL) and is also implementing the signalling and PSD systems for the DTL Extension (DTLe) and the Jurong Region Line (JRL).

Siemens Mobility CBTC signalling system will also be used for the JB-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link, capable of moving 10,000 passengers an hour in each direction.

The German firm has also supplied the power supply system for the DTL and is also currently implementing it on the DTLe, the Circle Line Stage 6 (CCL6) and the North East Line Extension (NELe).

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to build on our existing technology partnership with Singapore’s Land Transport Authority in its continued efforts to effectively manage their urban development,” said Michael Peter, Chief Executive Officer of Siemens Mobility.

“With our regional base in Singapore, this signalling project will be one of the steppingstones for our long-term goal of making sustainable impact to the mobility landscape in Asia, and we will continue to grow our core competencies in the region through investing in localization strategy and local talent development.”
