Lisboa metro modernisation moves ahead
PORTUGAL: Metropolitano de Lisboa has called tenders for the supply of 14 three-car trainsets and CBTC to replace the signalling, which dates from the 1970s.
A total investment of €127m is planned. The new rolling stock is expected to arrive in 2022, with entry into service of the trains and new signalling in 2025.
With GoA 2 operation and a larger fleet, headways would be able to shorten to less than 4 min. Capacity on the four-line network would increase by 20%.
