Stadler-Ansaldo STS Consortium wins Glasgow metro contract

GlasgowGlasgow metro operator Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) has awarded Stadler Bussnang AG / Ansaldo STS Consortium a £200 million (€261.7 million) for the supply of new trains, signalling and equipment.
The new trains will be the same length and size as existing rolling stock but will be a four-car set, as opposed to the current three-car set, with open gangways to maximise the space available and allow for wheelchair access with wheelchair users able to access the system at St Enoch in the City Centre and Govan at the new transport interchange which is currently under construction.
The Metro’s signalling equipment, control systems and control centre will all be replaced to accommodate the new trains and enable improved availability and reliability. The system will include new platform screen doors, which will be ‘half height’ to preserve as much space and openness within the stations as possible while still maintaining passenger safety and security.
