Singapore’s Jurong Region Line to Get Siemens CBTC Solution

The Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded a contract to Siemens Mobility to install its automatic train control signalling solution and half-height platform screen doors on the Jurong Region Line.

The contract is worth around 135 million euros. The line in question is 24km long. Siemens Mobility will install its Trainguard Sirius solution as well as its Westrace interlocking system to implement CBTC. Siemens Mobility will also install platform screen doors at the 24 stations being built. These are part of GoA (Grade of Automation) 4 of the line, meaning that trains can operate fully unattended and automatically.
