UAE NEWS: Dubai gets 50 new Metro trains; 15 route for Expo 2020

Trains are currently being tested on Route 2020 for the Dubai Metro Red Line.

Fifty new Dubai Metro trains have arrived in the area, the public transport manager said on Saturday, promising the city’s freedom of movement.

Fifteen trains for these positions are scheduled for Expo 2020, while the other 35 are designed to improve the quality of service of the existing Dubai Metro.

Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, director-general and chairman of the board of directors of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), said “significant improvements have been made” to railways to expand them.

Seats were also distributed in the new design, increasing the capacity of each train by eight percent, from 643 passengers to 696 passengers, added Al Tayer. “The seats are across the Gold Cabin and their length is between Silver and Women and Children Cabins.”

The design of the loading room has also been redesigned to increase the space for standing passengers.

“Other developments include the new design of holding and lighting handles, and the use of new digital ads. An illuminated line map will be used to show the route and stations of the municipality, and the light will use LED saving technology, ”explained Al Tayer.

Other configurations have also been made to make carts easily accessible to willing people. The seats are reclassified on both sides of the train and the road between the carriages is widened.

The Metro’s external environment, however, has not changed to retain ownership, Al Tayer said.

Test phase

New trains have been sent to Depot Metro Depot in Al Rashidiya and Jebel Ali. RTA is currently conducting train performance tests on the Route 2020 of the Dubai Metro Red Line.

The test consists of four phases: Stage 1 Static Test, in which the cart of the immovable municipal cart is placed on a series of test routes including communication systems, train control systems, power supply system, air conditioning, onboard electronic equipment, lighting systems and full integration and and interactions between various sub-structures and elements.

Phase 2 is the ‘Dynamic Tests’, which includes a series of tests on a ship on a moving train. Flexible stock tests cover electric motors, brake systems, regular and emergency operating systems tests, electrical systems, electromagnetic compliance, train control systems, and communication systems.

Section 3 deals with ‘Performance Tests’ to ensure the integrity and durability of the system. These tests are important phases of the project and begin after the completion of testing and integration of all programs. At this stage, the system will operate continuously in the same way as normal operation, but without riders, to achieve the target performance indicator.

Section 4 creates ‘Performance Tests’ performed by a municipal employee. It aims to verify operator readiness before the actual operation of the service. Includes a 14-day operation without passengers to evaluate the performance of the metro system under all circumstances including standard, reduced and emergency routes.
