Lucknow Metro begins using automatic train operation

INDIA: Lucknow Metro trains began running in attended automatic train operation mode on January 21. Trains have been running under manual driving with automatic train protection since the initial 8·5 km Transport Nagar – Charbagh section of the north–south line opened in September 2017.

The train operators now give a manual instruction to close the doors, after which the Alstom Metropolis trains run to the next station in GoA2 and open their doors without further intervention.

The line is equipped with Alstom’s Urbalis 400 CBTC. The control system provides automatic train supervision, route setting and automatic train regulation to optimise train movements and recover from any disruption.

Lucknow Metro Rail Corp expects to commission extensions of the line north to Munshipulia and south to Charan Singh International Airport in the near future, completing the 22·8 km priority corridor for the initial network.
