Signalling System (16/33)

There might have been a frustrating time when you experienced train delay due to a signalling fault. With the construction of new MRT lines and rising expectations of commuters to get to their destinations on time, the MRT system has adopted a newer SelTrac communications-based train control (CBTC) signalling system to facilitate more efficient train services across all its existing lines, including the older North-South and East-West routes. This system is supplied by the French company Thales and customised with specific software to tailor to the train infrastructural and environmental conditions. Hopefully, we can expect shorter waiting times and smoother rides on every line from now on.

    • Hi thank you for your comment and suggestion. The bodies of MRT trains are generally made with aluminium-alloy with an aluminium or acrylic finish. Depending on the generation, trains have been constructed by different companies in various countries, including Japan, France, China, and Austria. Future trains for the new lines will be constructed in either Spain or China.
