Alstom has signed a new contract to install a complete driverless communications-based train control (CBTC) signaling system and electromechanical infrastructure for the Umraniye-Atasehir-Goztepe (UAG) Metro Line, which is of great importance for the Anatolian side of Istanbul. This contract will not only enhance the existing infrastructure quality but also advance reliability, travel comfort, and reduce maintenance costs for the operator.

Alstom, through Gulermak and Nurol Joint-Venture, will ensure that the 13-kilometer long UAG metro line will operate as a fully automatic and driverless system. The line, which will connect Marmaray, Uskudar-Umraniye-Cekmekoy-Sancaktepe and Kadikoy-Kartal-Kaynarca metro lines, will have 11 stations with the highest level of safety measures. The line will be compatible and interoperable with the Dudullu-Bostanci Metro Line signaling system.

"We are thrilled to carry out our second largest signaling project in Istanbul within the last three months. As a leader of sustainable and innovative mobility, we are committed to continually advancing Istanbul's rail system network with our latest technology solutions," said Volkan Karakilinc Managing Director of Alstom Turkey. 

This will be the 3rd important project that was undertaken by Alstom within the last three months. Alstom is currently carrying out the signalling works for the Istanbul Cekmekoy-Sancaktepe-Sultanbeyli (CSS) line and the Bandirma-Bursa-Yenisehir-Osmaneli (BBYO) line.

As a strong leader in the mass transit market with over 30 years’ expertise in CBTC and over 160 metro lines equipped in over 25 countries, Alstom has been a leading provider of signalling and train control technology to provide turnkey transit systems for rail vehicles, metros and trams in Turkey for more than 60 years. The Istanbul office serves as the regional hub for Alstom's Signalling expertise and provides project management, engineering, procurement, training and maintenance services for the entire region.
