NOIDA: The first Metro ride to Greater Noida is still a year away but the preview of what has been billed as a top-of-the-line project on all parameters has been unveiled. And it does not disappoint. The first visuals of the Chinese-made rakes that will run on the 29.7km Aqua line were released by Noida Metro on Sunday. The photos reveal an impressive aerodynamic design, spacious cars and a soothing colour scheme synchronised with the line's 'aqua' theme. Each train of four coaches, NMRC said, will have a seating capacity of 186 and can carry approximately 1,000 passengers.
A demonstration coach will arrive in February 2017. The rakes will start getting delivered from the first week of July 2017, Santosh Yadav,
NMRC's managing director, told TOI. The coaches are being manufactured by China's CRRC Corporation Limited. The Aqua line will have 19 rakes with four coaches each, which makes a total of 76 coaches that it will supply. Each coach costs around Rs 4 crore.
"Trains will run at a speed of 35 km/hour and at a frequency of 10 minutes initially. In peak hours, they will run at five-minutes intervals. Frequency will be tweaked to address commuting traffic," Yadav said. Initially, NMRC will operate 11 trains along the corridor. "While the seating capacity of each train will be 186, the standing capacity will be 848 passengers," Yadav said. "Hence, the total capacity of each train will be 1,034 commuters." Elaborating on the features of the coaches, Yadav said they are lightweight cars made of stainless steel and aluminium. Each train will be equipped with a passenger information system, a public address system and an emergency announcement system from the operation control centre. Besides, all the stations will be equipped with platform screen doors. The track, from Sector 71 in Noida to Bodaki in Greater Noida, is expected to be commissioned by December 2017.
