The newest section of Bangalore’s Namma metro, India, has entered commercial service.

Connecting the northern, central and southern parts of the city, the new opening on the Green Line marks the completion of Phase 1 of the metro system.

Alstom manufactured and installed the train control and signalling and telecommunications systems on the line as part of a €114 million contract it was awarded by the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation in 2009.

Alstom India’s managing director Bharat Salhotra said: “Bangalore is home to our talented engineering base which has been instrumental in bringing the project to successful completion.

“We at Alstom are working tirelessly to ensure our teams in Bangalore bring out the best-in-class, competitive and sustainable mobility solutions of the future.”
