Description

The topic of this presentation will be the forty-three new walk-through air-conditioned trains to start serving the Capital from 2022 for which Transport for London (TfL) is searching for a manufacturer to design and build. This procurement will create a new generation of trains for the Docklands Light Railway (DLR).

The new trains are part of TfL's continued multi-billion pound programme of major investment in new and better public transport to support London's growth and the creation of new homes and jobs.

The order will include 43 new walk-through trains to increase capacity on the DLR by up to 30 per cent, which is needed to support the increased popularity of the railway and the continuing redevelopment of the Docklands area. The new trains will replace rolling stock some of which is nearly 25 years old. They will feature on-board real- time information, air-conditioning and mobile device charging points for the first time, providing customers with better and more efficient journeys.
